As a self-proclaimed coat addict, it should come as no surprise that I’m always excited for the cooler season.  And while I much prefer warmer weather over cold (I mean, who doesn’t?!), I have a strong preference for dressing for the latter.  Despite only getting about 4-ish months of proper cold weather here in Sydney, my wardrobe is more skewed to the colder climate.  I’ve got coats and jackets aplenty! To me, coats are like shoes – they can either make or break an outfit… and you can never have too many.  

So let’s kick off 7 coats, 7 days – a coat for each day of the week to inspire your winter ensembles.  You’ll notice there’s a range of silhouettes to suit different styles and budgets.  

Monday: The Classic Camel Coat

The Curated Coat* (sz XS – review here) styled with
L: Everlane knit dress* (sz XS), Sandler pumps (sold out), Celine bag (review here), Ray Ban sunglasses; R: Karen Millen dress (sz 8), Dior slingbacks, Celine bag (review here), Ray Ban sunglasses

For an outerwear staple that can do it all, you can’t go past a camel coat. Work, play, casual, dressy, splurge, save – the options are endless and it’s a great alternative to a staple black winter coat that we’ve all got tucked away in our wardrobes. My current go-to camel coat has been no stranger to the feed or the blog – the Tailored Coat by The Curated.

Tuesday: The Statement Wrap Coat

Toteme coat (sz XS) styled with
L: Everlane knit* (sz XS), Nobody Denim jeans, Gucci belt (review here), R.M. Williams Boots, Celine bag (review here, affordable dupe here); Ray Ban sunglasses; R: Country Road knit (sz XS), The Frankie Shop trousers (sz S), Gucci belt (review here), Sarah Flint pumps (review and discount code here), Celine bag (review here), Ray Ban sunglasses

For a silhouette that’s very now, a relaxed wrap coat is hard to beat. I recently added this signature Toteme Annecy Coat to my collection and it strikes the perfect balance between relaxed and polished. The coat has been a constant on the street style set and the design is now thankfully part of Toteme’s permanent line given its popularity. The style plays with silhouettes with its oversized collar and exaggerated lapels.  It gets a refresh each season and I managed to snap up the houndstooth version earlier this year.  

Wednesday: The Modern Coat

The Curated coat* (sz XS – review here) styled with
L: Uniqlo knit (sz XS), Scanlan Theodore skirt (sold out), Tony Bianco mules (sold out, shop the real deal here), Celine bag (review here); R: Everlane knit* (sz XS), Nobody Denim jeans, Gucci belt (review here), Atmos & Here sandals, Celine bag (review here, affordable dupe here), Ray Ban sunglasses

Another outerwear piece that’s great for both work and play is the modern coat – a collarless jacket with a more fitted silhouette. The minimal aesthetic is very The Row and Loewe-esque but I’m sporting the Modern Coat by The Curated which offers the same luxurious fabric at a fraction of the price. It’s sharp, slick and sophisticated.   

Thursday: The Overcoat

H&M Overcoat (sz XS) (similar here) styled with
L: Reiss knit dress (sz S), Vince Camuto pumps (similar here), Celine bag (review here); R: Everlane knit (sz XS), Everlane jeans* (sz S), Nicholas Kirkwood loafers (review here), Celine bag (review here); Ray Ban sunglasses

For an easygoing jacket that you can throw over just about anything, an overcoat offers the comfort and simplicity that you want in a coat. My overcoat was a high street find proving that you don’t need to fork out a fortune to find a staple coat.

Friday: The Trench Coat

L: Uniqlo trench coat (similar here), Everlane knit (sz XS), Everlane jeans* (sz 26), Gucci belt (review here), Everlane flats* (review here), Celine bag (review here); Ray Ban sunglasses, R: M&S trench coat (sz 6), Arket tee (sz S), M&S skirt (sz 8), M&S mules*, Celine bag (review here, affordable dupe here), Ray Ban sunglasses

It wouldn’t be a complete 7 Coats, 7 Days post without the polished and practical trench coat. It’s the ultimate forever piece in your wardrobe and a lightweight jacket for those warmer winter days. While the Burberry Trench is the OG and has never really left my wish list, I’ve managed to steal the look for a lot less and rely heavily on two trench coats that I picked up on the high street from Uniqlo and Marks & Spencer. And if you had to make me choose one over the other, the M&S trench wins hands down. It’s exceptionally well made and is a nod to the traditional trench with some modern updates.

Saturday: The Pea Coat

Sportscraft coat (sz 6) styled with
L: Acne Studios scarf, Everlane jeans*, Celine bag (review here), Everlane flats*, Ray Ban sunglasses; R: Everlane knit* (sz XS), Everlane jeans*, Jane Debster boots*, Celine bag (review here), Ray Ban sunglasses

As far as classic winter coats go, the peacoat reigns supreme. The double-breasted winter workhorse has stood the test of time and makes the most casual of outfits look effortlessly polished. There are so many great options out there from the super-luxe to the affordable high street finds. I’ve had this navy pea coat in my wardrobe for over 3 years now and thanks to its classic design, it’s a piece that I can see myself wearing for years to come.

Sunday: The Puffer

L: Everlane jacket* (sz XS), Everlane knit* (sz XS), The Frankie Shop trousers (sz S), Nicholas Kirkwood flats (review here), Celine bag (review here), Ray Ban sunglasses; R: Everlane jacket* (sz XXS), Everlane jeans*, Everlane boots*, Celine bag (review here, affordable dupe here), Ray Ban sunglasses

For those extra chilly days (and early mornings during the kids’ weekend winter sport season), I’ve been rotating between this black puffer jacket and this navy parka. Both jackets are so practical – made with water-resistant fabric and hoods so I can stay nice and warm during the wet and windy weather and pockets to the nines. And the best part? Both jackets are part of Everlane’s ReNew collection and made from recycled plastic.

And there you have it – 7 Coats, 7 Days.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
