The trench coat
If raincoats were a group of friends, the trench coat would be the chic one from Paris. It’s always dashing, whether it’s raining or slightly windy, paired with a suit and brogues or a t-shirt and broken jeans. A classic brown trench coat is never neglected, but you can always opt for a sleek black version or even a boldly patterned number for even more flair.

The fleece jacket
Have you ever looked at a sheep and thought, boy, I wish I felt so cozy and comfortable? Now you can. A gorp-y, high-quality fleece jacket not only helps you structure your fits and pack in the warmth – either as a top layer in spring and autumn or under a coat in winter – it is also great for combat against the elements. In fact, Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard fell in love with deep-pile fleece for the first time because it can repel moisture and ward off strong winds.

The bomber jacket
The bomber jacket was originally designed for high-altitude missions during World War II, but has been an important site ever since. The real-deal versions are sturdy and built warm enough to keep pilots comfortable in the cockpit, but the real key to the bomber’s appeal is its short and roomy silhouette, which gives it a flatteringly relaxed vibe that is perfect for layering suitable. Put on a pair of high heeled boots and you can’t help but feel on cloud nine.

The waxed cotton jacket
Imagine a swampy old Brit roaming the countryside with his trusty Airedale Terrier by his side. What is he wearing? Corduroy trousers and brogue boots were likely rounded off with a sturdy waxed cotton hunting jacket. As for rugged elegance, it’s impossible to beat the indelible blend of weather resistance, durability, and beauty of waxed cotton. These jackets are designed to last a lifetime – long enough that one day you will look like the old Briton is putting them on.

The work jacket
These jackets range from barebones to overdeveloped jackets, but they are all designed for tough jobs. They are usually roomy and hip-length cut to allow more freedom of movement. Therefore, they are ideal for combining with high-waisted trousers with wide legs. Like trucker jackets, work jackets earn their beauty through hard work and wear and tear.

The parka and anorak
Do you prefer a hood with your outerwear? Anoraks and parkas will keep your noggin up and dry in a pinch when you’ve left your home without a hat or umbrella. Thanks to their outdoor or military background, they have all the functions and versatility you could possibly need in a casual jacket.

The top coat
When you need to look really sophisticated and polished in the dead of winter, a top coat is the only way to go. All of that extra length adds gorgeous flow and draping to your fits, plus plenty of extra space for a textured or patterned fabric to really make an impact.

The golf jacket
Are you looking for something light and preppy? Try a golf jacket. You may know them as Harrington or Drizzler, but the concept stays the same: a lightweight poplin or twill shell with a short body, an elastic waist, and a collar that you can button to cover your neck on cooler occasions. They have British roots – hence the traditional tartan lining – but made their way into mainstream states in the 60s and 70s thanks to colleagues like Elvis, James Dean and Steve McQueen. Pull one over a polo and pressed pants for a classic look, or wear a British mod with skinny jeans and shiny work boots.
