Floral mini dresses are starting to be placed amongst the clearance rail whilst cushy knits upsurge in demand. Despite knits, there is another form of clothing that rises in popularity during the bitter days – coats. Whether it’s a broad parka, a sophisticated maxi-coat or even a chic pea-coat, we all have the fundamental attire upon our Autumn/Winter clothing agenda. Evidently, there is a wide range to choose from however a year never passes where one type is the current trend. This year particularly, I believe it to be the anorak: lightweight, tremendously convenient and when-chosen-right visually top-notch. An anorak is this season’s must-have.

Miu Miu

In my opinion, Miu Miu produces the most dainty of clothing and is one of my personal favourites of designers so when I discovered the label’s pretty anorak coat, it left a large desire upon me. With the brand’s usually childish pastels, this anorak is very prominent. Furthermore, it could be paired with endless outfits as a result of its striking colours and unique layout. This coat can make any rainy day a sunny one as of the vibrant body in pale blue and deep midnight green shown through the hood. Most of all, the coat’s parallel draw strings add strong texture as well as bringing back a partly-good throwback to the recently previous years. In addition to this, the fact that the coat has a lack of length guarantees that your dearest bottom wear can still fully be on show.

Known for its efficient rain-wear (hence the name), Rains endears a greatly constructive yet artistic outlook to its apparel. Using color blocks of black sleeves and a black top section besides the remainder being overtook with an assertive sky blue, this anorak is the chief of contemporary clothing. In my opinion it would look best paired with a geometric print considering that the coat consists of no patterns whatsoever. Regarding disadvantages, dissimilar to that of the other garments, this anorak subsists of a short zip rather than a full zip which can cause the removal of the coat to be more time consuming therefore less conducive then substitutes of a comparable design and/or arrangement.

Last but not least is the exceptionally deluxe label of Acne, popular upon social media, this brand may be lavish but its extravagance is worth the money. Having features identical to the Marc by Marc Jacobs anorak, this piece is undoubtedly thick but still practical. In addition, the maxi approach contains that of an inside faux-fur coat that is unequivocally able at keeping a satisfactory neck temperature and in damp circumstances, an equally as good head temperature. Focusing on colour, this coat is in the frequent shade of navy conveying an idea that it is not difficult to be paired with other clothing.
