A cold weather wardrobe essential, winter jackets range from smart coats for business wear to casual parkas or raincoats and specialist protective outdoor wear. The range of winter jackets showcased on the Stylight site features a wide variety of fabrics, styles and brands including padded and quilted short coats, stylish wool blend coats in various colors and cozy waterproof mountain jackets with hoods and lining.
Bundle Up & Beat The Bulk With These Winter Jacket Duos
Piling on pieces may seem like the practical approach to keeping warm but it’s not the most flattering. Avoid looking like the michelin man by skipping a few layers and double up on your jackets instead.
To show you how it’s done, we’ve peeled back the layers to show you three winter jacket combinations that simultaneously keep you warm without sacrificing style. Before you toss one puffy coat over another, follow these foolproof combinations to guide you through cold-weather dressing without getting lost in the layers.
Lightweight Puffer + Long Coat
A lightweight puffer jacket adds a sporty touch to an otherwise polished coat. Typically lined with nylon and down feathers, the lighter weight adds warmth without adding bulk. Proportions can make or break a look, and a jacket that rests at the hips will balance the coat’s lengthy silhouette. Let the lightness of this jacket act as a shell and style it zipped up.
Style It With: Tapered jeans and knee high boots
Oversize Parka + Blazer
A parka is the perfect piece to layer over just about anything. These two jackets may be different shapes and styles but typically come in the same color family. Neutrals layered with neutrals never looks wrong or in this case will leave you feeling frigid.
Style It With: A flannel T-shirt dress, tights and ankle booties
Duffle Coat + Collarless Crop Jacket
The best fashion marriages are those between form and function, and nothing is more functional that the naval-inspired duffle coat. The heavy duty menswear-esque coat feels more feminine when paired with a structured crop jacket. When choosing a crop jacket, play with different textures like leather or nylon to add more interest to the simple and understated duffle coat.
Style It With: A cashmere sweater and wool pant
Don’t let your winter jackets become an afterthought. Keep the brisker months at bay by building your outfit around your outerwear. Layering with these combinations let’s you beat the cold (and the bulk) without losing your style.
