The padded coat seems to have quickly become a wardrobe staple this year. As we spend more time out doors nothing is quite as practical as a duvet or padded coat or jacket - but can we make them look good too ? As you can see from how fashion guru and style maven, Alyson Walsh of That's Not My Age, the answer is YES.
Alyson looks stunning in the Eleonora coat from Part Two, which she featured in her Telegraph fashion column last week. This simple round neck, longer line, patch pockets and shaped hem give this an immediate update. We love the way that Alyson has combined these stunning autumnal tones layering the coat over our Loreak Eiti camel sweater and adding russet peg trousers and boots.
New brand to Precious, Loreak, also offers an updated style on their belted padded jacket which again has chic pocket details and a matching belt. The jacket looks great worn either belted or not belted. Layer over skinny jeans or trousers for a retro 70's ski look.
The Part Two Edith coat is made from a flatter quilt but with great zip and press stud detail it's an edgy piece which we have in stock in black. The ribbed collar and cuffs give this style a sportswear twist.
Just add a beanie hat, and cosy layers of knitwear and you'll be set for the rest of this winter.
