Brrrr, it's getting chilly out there! Learn how to layer up with the winter coat!

To be fair, here in Auckland we don’t get the cold our southland stylers get, but we do get our fair share of crispy mornings and cold winds….oh my….THAT wind…. and if you’re like me - constantly running from one thing to another - we have three coat styles this season to get you through the chilly rush.


You’ve heard the term ‘statement’ before. Statement necklace, statement earrings, statement boot. It’s simply a term to describe a personality pop. Why not try a bold colour, interesting texture or quirky cut that has you written all over it this winter?


1. Portmans Christchurch Coat $149.95

2. Max Tessie Longline Coat $269.99

3. Farmers Oliver Black Ponte Swing Coat $169.99


Not so secretly, this is my favourite because it reminds me of a stylish dressing gown and anything that resembles cosy comfort or sleep is a winner must have. A wrap coat is also really forgiving in the shape department as it allows you to tie your shape together, cinching in that waist or you can tie your coat at the back to give an instant pinched in waist – aka the hourglass shape - we all covet.


4. Portmans Scandi Wrap Coat $229.95

5. Max Reece Duster Coat $269.99

6. Glassons Check Tie Waist Coat $79.99


You can’t beat a timeless cut or fabric, especially with a ‘bigger ticket’ item.

This is one ‘oldie but a goodie’ I come across a lot in my client’s wardrobes and you simply can’t go wrong providing it still fits well and looks as good as new. Look for houndstooth, tweed or check for a never fails go-to.


7. Portmans Oska Check Coat $199.95

8. Cue Brushed Tweed Belted Coat $385

9. Jacqui E Funnel Neck Check Coat $199.95


We can’t forget the men folk, they might not admit it, but they feel the cold too, right? And I must say, there is something about a well-dressed man who considers his outerwear and our menswear specialists at Shore City have got an excellent variety. Check out my top picks for inspiration.

10. Barkers Raymond Coat $399.99
11. Rembrandt Compton Blue Check Overcoat $599.00
12. Rodd and Gunn Newstead Coat $499

Snuggly and stylishly yours this winter,
