winter coats 2021

My love for the autumn/winter season reminds me of Rebecca Bloomwood from Confessions Of A Shopaholic’s love for retail stores. There’s this one line at the beginning of the movie where she says, “You know that feeling when you see someone cute, and he smiles, and your heart kinda goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast, well that’s what it’s like when I see a store.” And that’s e.x.a.c.t.l.y how I feel when autumn rolls around. It’s that time to pull out all your favourite coats and statement pieces to elevate any look instantly, and we’ve got you covered with some of our favourite coats to rock this season, from the brands you know and love like Levi’s and Prada and everything in between.

If you took a close look at my closet, you would see that it’s 70% made up of coats and a 30% mix of bodysuits and denim. I love creating a neutral base, whether pairing a bodysuit or crop top with denim jeans or sweats and elevating the look with a bold statement coat to spice up my attire – it brings me pure and utter joy.

Now, I know it’s still roughly 30 degrees in Dubai, but that can’t stop a girl from daydreaming about all the fits I’d style with a glamorous coat and honestly, the first day of winter is technically not that far, so it’s time to get serious about staying warm – but not at the expense of expressive style. It’s easy to cover up a standout look with a full-length coat, but why not let a coat add the outfit instead of masking it?

So, if you find yourself looking to invest in a new coat that will feel fresh long into 2022, scroll ahead for our top picks.
