As we are fast approaching halloween weekend we are well into the Autumn season. The warmer weather and late sunsets are a thing of the past as the earlier nights and very cold mornings are officially amongst us. With the leaves falling and the change in colour across London it's time to prepare for the winter months. With this, hopefully many of you have began the transition in your winter wardrobe?
As always with a new season this marks the beginning of a new line of attire or a revamp of your current wardrobe and although a lot of your summer wardrobe will still get great wear it's also a great chance to add a new jacket or extra fashion piece to your collection.
Well, today we wanted to discuss the topcoat. A timeless piece in any mans wardrobe which you can wear with plenty of outfits, you can't really wrong with this styling. Topcoats are great in any wardrobe as they are an extremely diverse jacket, perfect for the cold autumn days, smart evening occasions and casual days worn over a t-shirt or shirt.
Unlike the overcoat that is slightly heavier, passes knee length and tends to be styled for protection against the cold weather the topcoat sits above or stops at the knee and tends to be lighter and as mentioned is more versatile when it comes to styling options.
This style of jacket has been around in many countries for centuries, often worn for formal uses to portray a higher social status or as a military uniform. It was 'only' until the 17th century this all changed and these jackets featured became readily available to all classes.
The topcoats featured by us are perfect for the fall season we would advise sticking to neutral tones to keep the jacket as wearable as possible. Use it as the main piece when styling an outfit. If you are not an owner of an outer-coat (overcoat or a topcoat) then we advise to get one and make it an essential part of your autumn/winter wardrobe. In today's market we are spoilt for choices when it comes to overcoat designs, patterns and styles so we have listed below our top picks so make sure you check them out - TWT.
