Winter Rules No 1

The proper coat

If you're in the market for a jacket at this stage of the winter, look to buy a well-cut, adaptable jacket; light enough to work with layering but just thick enough to keep you insulated.

Tip: Choose a coat with a detachable shearling or padded lining, like this option from Sandro. In winter it will be the best thing you’ve ever bought, while on spring days you can ditch that lining.
