The jackets you need: how to transition into Fall/Winter
Dressing for the colder part of the year is never easy. From the tricky transition into fall, or the freezing temperatures during the depths of winter, the only solution is high-performing outerwear that offers warmth, comfort and an impeccable look. We present our edit of outerwear styles from the BOSS Fall/Winter collection, so you are prepared for unexpected weather in any number of situations.
THE DOWN JACKET
Sartorial, sleek, simple. The packable down jacket will be your go-to in falling temperatures. The insulating, water-resistant design is lightweight and easily transportable, stowing away into a neat bag. Once unpacked, it will also go back to its original shape – crease-free and ready to work. For the move into colder weather, the pared-back design can be as easily worn over tailoring as it can a dressed-down sporty ensemble.
THE PADDED GILET
Much like the down jacket, the gilet is the ultimate transitional piece – perfect as the final layer of a formal or casual look. Throw one over your suit on your journey to work during cool fall mornings, or layer it under a tailored coat in the lowest of winter temperatures for added warmth.
THE TAILORED COAT
Worn over every outfit, elegant outerwear is the first impression you give. A sharp-cut wool coat will not only keep you warm – the sartorial silhouette can take tailoring to new heights, or instantly pull together a more dressed-down look. Complete your ensemble with a tailored coat and you’ll be ready to take on the world in style.
Expertly tailored outerwear and perfectly cut suits: these parts were made to be together, so much so that you won't want to take your coat off.
THE ESSENTIAL LAYERS
Temperatures change going from inside to outside, so layering is key to winter dressing. Coat, jacket, knitwear, T-shirt – add or subtract as the temperatures go from plus to minus. Keep things understated in deep tones, or block together light and dark shades of the same colour and take a bold step into winter.
