Lift your spirit this winter by staying warm with statement highlander outerwear. Layer up with coats, knitwear and puffers that won’t compromise your style.

LOOK 1

For your outdoor pursuits consider layering puffer on puffer for a truly cocoon-like silhouette. In this case I asked for the Kathmandu puffer to be two sizes larger than what I normally pull, to really exaggerate the volume. Expect to see plenty of plaid and tartan popping up in the next few seasons, too. Opt for eclectic layering like this colorful plaid vest from Comme Des Garcon.

LOOK 2

An unstructured coat that feels like a cardigan but carries the look of a tailored jacket is a trans-seasonal essential. You’ll get optimum wear from it too. Take this Alpaca coat from The Curated and give it a bohemian vibe with knitted flared pants and plaid ruched dress (worn here as a top]). For a more sharp-chic look, go for an all black look underneath.

LOOK 3

Channel your inner grunge with a floor length tartan skirt and knee-high cowboy or lace-up boot. Opt for chunky handmade knits or this boyfriend mohair sweater by Bassike. I added a signature beanie to finish the outdoor look.

LOOK 4 & 5

Utility inspired looks from cargo pants and trenches, to a floor length coat, are classics you’ll keep forever. Not only practical, the style travels from the country outdoors through to urban wear.
