The school run can be tricky. And that’s just the run itself. We’re not even mentioning that chaos that goes before it. The frantic sandwich-making the night before, the morning hunt for a missing school tie and a sometimes (but not always) mischievous dog running riot in the kitchen.
We understand that when you’ve got your little bookworm dressed, you may only have seconds to get yourself ready. So that’s why we’ve pulled together some coats that are the perfect balance of form and function. These are the throw-on and-go, failsafe school run styles that will have you looking your best and protected from the elements (Mother Nature can have an nasty streak at this time of year). So without further ado, meet the women’s jackets…
We’ve taken inspiration from the shape of a classic parka for this exceptionally stylish coat. Coated in faux wax and with an adjustable fishtail we’ve also added a detachable fur trim lining for additional warmth. When worn over (almost) anything it will complete the perfect school run outfit.
This is one of our warmest coats and was designed to cope with even the bitterest of days. We’ve lined the high collar with faux fur and the hood too, both are detachable to help you create different looks to take you through each term in style.
When it comes to quilted jackets, no one does it better. The versatile Newdale is a firm favourite; with a printed lining and cut to a truly flattering fit it’s easy to see why. Oh and did we mention it’s incredibly warm too?
The Coast Jacket has been our best-loved waterproof coat for quite a few years now, but this season we’ve included two things that will make waiting outside the school gates an even more stylish affair.
And (because we don’t want anyone to feel left out) now it’s time to introduce the men’s jackets…
Fit all manner of outdoor pursuits (including dashing to the school gates with only seconds to spare) this waterproof jacket is full of functional features that will make sure you’re ready to outwit the weather in an instant – the packaway hood is something we’re very fond of.
This shorter length quilted jacket is a timeless piece that will suit almost any man. First and foremost it’s a brilliant piece of outerwear that will see off any cold snap, but we’ve added a lot of little details that have a big effect.
The fit and attention to detail mean this contemporary take on a classic should make its way into every man’s wardrobe this season. The ribbed collar, cuffs and hem add interest, whilst the microfleece lining make sure function hasn’t been sacrificed for form.
Meet one of the most stylish men’s jackets we’ve ever made. Its shorter length and stand collar give it an edge, whilst the lighter weight of this style means that it’ll feel (and look) good over just a t-shirt.
