Here at Who What Wear, we often talk about the value of good basics, and what could be more of a winter basic than the humble black coat. Created in the most classic of classic colours, a black coat is the wardrobe staple that is guaranteed to go with almost everything you own. Whether it be a leather trench or a shearling-lined style, a black coat is the outfit-finishing item we often find ourselves reaching for throughout autumn and winter.
With timelessness guaranteed, black coats are sure to earn their value, especially when it comes to price per wear. As it is an item that can be worn on repeat, the popularity level of a black coat would definitely be up there with blue jeans, white tees, or winter-favourite Chelsea boots. If you’re still in need of a little convincing, we’ve shopped out a few black-coat outfits below to show you exactly how the item can be worn, no matter the occasion.
Pair your favourite black trench alongside a knit co-ord for a weekend outing like Lauren of A Style Edit, or wear a biker-style black coat with knee-high boots and leggings just like Camille Charriere for a more casual look. No matter what your plans are this autumn/winter, we guarantee a black coat is the wardrobe staple you’ll wear all season long.
