When it got cold, you dug out last year’s coat. But when it gets really cold, you should buy a new one and then wear it over last year’s coat. Sounds cray-cray?

Not if you take some tips from these insanely stylish people...

Stick To Tonal Colours


Find a long coat in a tonal blue to wear on top of your summer denim jacket. This is not only a nifty way to use your summer wrdrobe but the mix of denim and printed top coat works so well because there isn’t a fight between colours.

Mix Up The Textures


Try layering different textures of coats, like this awesome suede jacket under a shearling aviator. Keep the sleekier layer underneath, so that anything chunky or fluffy can sit easily on top.

It All Starts With A Bomber


A bomber jacket is the ideal first layer coat - close fitting and sporty, they look great when contrasted with a tailored oversized overcoat. We heart the pink and black pairing seen on fashion designer Charlie May.

**Pair Androgynous With Girly **


A fluffy soft duster coat looks ace over a more blokey denim jacket. Likewise a formal work blazer over a casual coat looks great too.

Clash Your Prints


Warning! This looks takes guts: pick a bold printed cropped jacket and clash it with your equally heavily printed topcoat. Guarenteed style success.

Use Your Trench As A Topcoat


Instead of belting up your trench coat, wear it loose as a topcoat over a quilted leather bomber to give the look a cool edge. Dibs to this bloggers for the double denim too.

Mash Up Smart With Casual


Find your smart peacoat a bit formal for day to day wear then pair it over a casual denim jacket or a leather jacket and pair with ripped jeans.

**Use Complementary Colours **


Whoever said pink and green should never been seen was obviously wrong looking at this girl. Try contrasting a two contrasting brights to really make the look pop!
