14 Hooded Coats You Could Do With Today

...And The Rest Of Winter, tbf.

See, proof fashion can be both stylish and practical!

The days are getting shorter, mornings cooler, and the clocks are set to go back in less than twenty days. Sigh. Clearly, winter is coming (even if we can't always tell with Mother Nature's recent mood swings). And while we’re unsure whether to pack an umbrella, sunglasses and that extra layer just in case, there’s one thing we can be sure of; hooded coats are an essential this season. 

Nothing puts a dampener on our day (quite literally) like an unexpected shower on the way to the office  – if we've learned anything from today's downpour it's that drowned rat is not a look and having to dry the bottom of your jeans with a hairdryer is a task we'd rather not have to endure first thing on a Monday morning - so we have to be prepared. 

Once reserved for raincoats and little else, hoods have been cropping up on all sorts of sophisticated cover-ups lately. Not only are they significantly cosier than non-hooded outwear. but they cancel out the need for bulky brollies which will inevitably turn inside out upon the first gust of wind. Modelled in everything from rich wool to velvet, even classic trench coats now come with hoods built-in.
