Who said jackets and coats are just for autumn/winter? With notoriously unpredictable weather, this is Farnol’s guide to dressing Britain's most sought after jackets and coats for all seasons.
EVERYDAY TWILL TRENCH
The trench coat now synonymous with everyday on screen influences such as Paul Newman in Paris Blues and Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's.
However, its creation came about as an alternative to the heavy serge greatcoats worn by British and French soldiers in the First World War- neither Burberry or Aquascutum can claim exclusive rights but both have tried throughout the years. There has however been many iterations on this classic, and Farnol offers their simplified take on the silhouette.
For chilly winter walks...
Dress it down by pairing with our hooded sweat, your favourite pair of jeans and everyday trainers. Alternatively, smarten up the look instantly, by throwing on a pair of black or brown Chelsea boots and our super soft cashmere scarf.
For the (slightly) warmer spring months...
Team the trench with one of our lightweight single jersey tops for when the temperature isn’t quite so unbearable.
EVERYDAY ALL WEATHER JACKET
The first ‘modern’ waterproof raincoat was created following the patent of tarpaulin fabric in 1824, described by chemist Charles Macintosh as “India rubber cloth”. His name has since become synonymous with the raincoat or ‘mackintosh’ (mac for short). The origins of the raincoat however, date back to antiquity in ancient China.
Our variation on the classic raincoat is for all eventualities - durable, minimalist and available in navy and black. Our take on this classic speaks it is more than just a raincoat. It’s fit for wind, rain, drizzle, intermittent sunshine, hail, sleet, torrential downpours... the list goes on. This modern take on a classic silhouette will leave you feeling svelte.
For drizzly summer days...
Style it with a pair of light coloured slim fit trousers, casual trainers and a tee.
For nippy winter mornings...
Pair it with a chunky knit or hoodie, navy trousers and your favourite boots or trainers (for a more casual look).
EVERYDAY TWILL TRENCH
The Trench for cool, rainy days...
Layer up the trench for winter months with our cashmere knit dress, a pair of thick tights and some black Chelsea boots for effortless, on the go style. Wear the trench belted up for a more structured aesthetic, or alternatively leave it open for an effortless look.
The Trench for warm autumn evenings...
The trench is the perfect coat for many occasions. One of our favourite ways to style it when the weather is warmer is with a classic little black dress and a simple pair of heels for evening drinks with the girls. Alternatively, if heels aren’t your thing, pair with over the knee boots.
The origins of the blazer are somewhat uncertain, some say that the blazer first made an appearance in British rowing in the 18th century.
The black blazer is already a relatively versatile piece, especially for the office, in addition to it being made suitable for all seasons. Here at Farnol we think the blazer can be dressed up, down and somewhere in between.
The blazer for crisp winter days...
For a casual, comfortable, but chic winter look, team the blazer over our warm and soft to touch 100% cashmere jumper. Our 100% cashmere is a super soft and sure to keep you warm during the cooler months. This combination is so versatile it can be worn with skinny trousers, ponti pants or for ultimate comfort, with our joggers and a pair of minimal, clean designed trainers.
The blazer for long summer nights...
By contrast, the blazer can be dressed up for warmer evenings. Pair it with matching slim fit trousers, sheer blouse, a pair of heels and you’re good to go.
