It's a 90s favourite that will never die and rightly so. The Penny Lane coat is the nostalgic icon that comes back around year on year, but, for this winter season, it appears they're more popular than ever.

Perhaps it's Gen Z's obsession with Y2K, or just a general feeling of nostalgia but according to Depop, searches for these cover-ups have more than doubled in the last month, shooting up by 120%. After an unseasonably warm Christmas it's finally, officially, big coat season.

Having originally been popularised in the 1960s, the classic Penny Lane coat, made up of suede trimmed with shearling, has been reinvented many times. From Lucy Liu in 1999 to Britney's infamous 'Dump Him' T-shirt moment in 2002 to Kate Hudson's iconic Almost Famous wardrobe and Angelina Jolie in Girl, Interrupted; Penny Lane-inspired coats have been a prominent feature of pop culture for decades.

There are plenty of amazing vintage options out there for authentic 60s vibes, while designers are always bringing out faux fur collar-and-cuff iterations. We love Charlotte Simone, whose next collection drops in March. We're waiting patiently.
