The arrival of September means two things: fashion month and coat season (finally). Autumn always calls for staples: amongst them leather boots, blazers and denim. However, the one item that is the prime example of the seasonal essentials, topping our wishlist year after year, is of course the wool coat.
Whether floor sweeping or cinched at the waist, it's one of the strongest pieces in your arsenal for layering – layered over a turtleneck and blazer for colder days and a blouse and skirt for the warmer days. And essential for us here in the Nordics is the breathability of wool, allowing us to adjust to the fast-changing outside temperatures.
Handpicked for you, find our ultimate edit of 20 handpicked wool coats to invest in this autumn below.

A layering superstar: this oversized tailored and detail-rich recycled-wool coat from Cos offers a loose fit around the waist and sleeves, permitting the chunkiest of knits underneath.
+Net sustain wool and cashmere-blend coat
LouLou Studio is known for its French simplicity, and this wool and cashmere blend coat is certainly solid proof of that. The boxy shoulders and the buttons gives the coat that sought-after masculine touch, too.
