It’s time to say goodbye to summer and hello to Autumn with this season's hottest cover-ups. Chloé Laing helps you find the perfect outerwear to warm up your wardrobe.

With September around the corner and summer coming to a close, the impending dark nights will be rolling in and it’s time to update the wardrobe ready for cooler weather. But look on the bright side, we get to splurge on gorgeous new jackets to stay snuggled up this season. With everything from warm mulberries, stand-out mustards and cool camels, we can’t wait to stock up. 

The stay warm jacket is the hardest working item in the wardrobe, keeping you chic but cosy in the forever unpredictable weather, so it is important to find the right one. From the biker leather and the faux fur glam to the super soothing velvets and stylish suedes, we have everything to bring you some colour while keeping out the chill. We’ve found the best, luxe coverups to suit both the sensible and the sensational, proving that your wardrobe can have plenty of fun without the sun. 


We love this ultra lightweight jacket by Barbour. A gorgeous maroon to warm up those winter nights – not to mention, quilted jackets are perfect for keeping you cosy. Whether you are taking a walk in the country or rushing to the car after work, this jacket is the perfect fit.
