Melbourne’s best winter coats and jackets for women
Got the winter blues? Embrace the season with beautiful wool coats, classic trench coats, lightweight rain jackets, longline puffers and more.
Classic A-line trench coat
Check out the Jesi trench from Alpha60, a relaxed-fit beauty in classic taupe. Princess seams and inverted back pleat give this trending piece a cute, London-chic vibe. And if you want to brighten your winter look, add a cosy and eye-catching woven check scarf.
Upcycled wool shackets
The secret to Melbourne style? Shopping at secret ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ pop-ups. Start in Docklands and order a custom-made "shacket" from LaGuapa Outerwear. They’re sustainably made from vintage wool blankets, and each piece is cut individually by hand. Whether your flavour is mint green and pastel pink or royal blue and jet black, there's a shirt-jacket for you.
Long-line black puffer
For something more cool than cuddly, opt for the longline puffer from Nique. Oozing Melbourne street cred, it’s unisex and high fashion, with the cosy warmth of a duvet. Oversized pockets mean you can keep your hands – gloves and all – firmly secured and out of the cold.
Maximalist puffer coat
Stand out in a sea of black puffers with a maximalist take on this Melbourne staple. Not for the faint-hearted, ELK's colourful kudde puffer is a riot of rainbow scribbles. You could wear it with your activewear, but you've already come this far. Why not pair it with a matching print t-shirt dress and chunky black boots?
NYC style corporate blazers
Whether it's over jeans on Friday or part of your midweek power suit look, the humble blazer is still very much on for winter. Cut a sophisticated figure in one of these investment pieces from Little Collins Street boutique, Lindsay Nicholas New York. Try striking red, cosy blue plaid or classic black.
Pastel Y2K raincoat
As practical as it is loud, the high-shine Selva raincoat from Búl has captured our attention. Dress like a fashion icon in the longline coat and top it off with a matching hat. It's fully lined and the glossy PU will keep you dry on the drizzliest of days. The only question is – blue or pink?
Timeless wool coats
Think wardrobe staples, think Assembly Label. The Aussie brand is renowned for its classic wool coats that get an update every year. The 100 per cent wool Sadie coat comes in five seasonal colours. Destined to be an everyday favourite, it's unlined, with a thick tie belt to cinch in the waist. We're torn between the rich cocoa brown and chic forest green. Find Assembly Label at QV Melbourne.
Faux fur statement coat
The Melbourne-made glow duster jacket from Kuwaii is the statement coat of our dreams. Made in a thick and luxurious recycled faux fur, the rosy pink coat has a cocoon shape and sweet Peter Pan collar. It's perfectly oversized and the sleeves are wide enough to layer up with chunky knitwear to see you through winter.
Black leather biker jacket
Made in Australia from 100 per cent genuine leather - that's the Paddington promise. This jet black look is fully lined, slightly cropped and offers edgy wide pointed lapels. Black not for you? Brighten up your winter wardrobe and opt for red, green or creamy beige.
Printed rain jackets
Unicorns, cacti, seagulls and parrots. Pick your fave water-resistant print at Monsterthreads this winter. Most of the designs are supplied by local artists, and the range comes in kid's sizes too, so you can coordinate the whole fam. Then double down and complete your look with a matching umbrella.
