From long puffer coats to sporty padded gilets, keep warm outdoors with our edit of seriously cosy outerwear
Best for rainy days:
the puffer jacket
With its freezing temperatures and seemingly endless rain, the great British winter requires a coat that’ll keep you both warm and dry, especially as we’re all going on more walks than ever before and socialising is set to be al fresco for the foreseeable future. Many of our padded coats feature water-repellent Stormwear and Thermowarmth tech to keep them super warm but still lightweight, making them practical as well as stylish and a winner for winter wardrobes. With its recycled feather and down lining, this black hooded puffer jacket features drizzle-beating Stormwear tech and cosiness-boosting fleece-lined pockets to keep hands toasty on even the coldest days.
Best for sub-zero temps: the long puffer coat
As close to wearing a duvet as you can get, a long puffer coat is the ultimate in winter outerwear, taking on with ease the worst weather that winter can throw at you. The perfect layer to pop over your loungewear staples for an essential shopping trip or weekend walk, our long puffer coats combine weather-beating tech with design details to keep you warm and dry, such as funnel necks and hidden hoods. This black feather and down puffer coat is a cold-weather classic design you’ll wear for many chilly seasons to come. Obsessed with The Crown? This weather-proof blue quilted puffer coat adds regal country chic to jeans and jumper combos.
Best for versatility:
the padded gilet
A layering hero that’ll keep your core toasty without restricting movement, a padded gilet is ideal when your winter coat is too warm, but you still need some insulation; plus, it can be worn under a winter coat for extra warmth. Marrying style and practicality, this chevron quilted gilet features water-repellent Stormwear and Thermowarmth tech to keep you toasty. Sporty padded gilets are a useful addition to your fitness kit for cold-weather workouts. Our Goodmove padded running gilet is made from breathable, moisture-wicking fabric and features a zip pocket to stash your keys, making it a versatile layer for outdoor exercise on chilly days.
