Double Coating: The Hottest Way To Layer This Season

The latest coat trend to hit the savviest style warriors? It's all about the double act. Multiple layers equal multiple style points, so take advantage of the big freeze and start thinking in twos. How to do it? You need contrast in colour, fabric and cut. See how Aussie blog queen Margaret Zhang nails exactly that with her leather biker under a slouchy army trench. Or take Parisian workwear chic to the max like Caroline de Maigret and pop a sleep blazer under your slimline overcoat. We're also loving the way Camille Charriere rips up the rule book and layers the same shape - a double bomber! It shouldn't work but it does. As the saying (sort of) goes, two coats are better than one...

Army trench plus polished leather equals laid-back luxury. The key to this is the colour contrast - army green and black is just the ticket.

Blazer plus masculine overcoat gets a big chic tick. Just lose the top coat for a simple, sleek take on workwear.

Two of a kind by Camille Charriere

Proof that you can never have too much of a good thing. Try quilted satin under your tough tweed, or embroidered florals under neat navy pinstripes.
