Curated Wardrobe: 5 Outerwear Pieces for AW22

We’re officially in autumn, and while we might not want to say goodbye to the sunshine just yet, grey skies and chillier mornings will soon be upon us. Luckily for you, we’ve created a curated list of 5 outerwear pieces you’ll be gravitating towards this season. Pieces that will keep you warm and protected from the harsh winds and drizzly days ahead. Perfect outerwear items to make that commute easier or those weekend walks drier.


Belstaff – Radar Jacket

Belstaff Radar Jacket

First up is this jacket from Belstaff. The British brand is well known for their rugged outerwear pieces designed to keep you protected from the elements.

The Radar Jacket is perfect for when that temperature drops, keeping you insulated with 700-fill power down. The funnel collar also ensures you stay warm during the cold.

The jacket is also water repellent which is ideal for autumn as you never really know when a sudden shower might hit.

We also love the colour of this jacket; the bright orange is really fitting in with the autumn feels and is a nice break away from the traditional olive and black colour jackets you’re probably familiar with during the winter. The weave-dye treatment of the recycled nylon outer is hand dyed making each piece unique from the variations in colour intensity and texture.


Rains – Padded Nylon Coat

Rains Padded Nylon Jacket

When it comes to autumn you can guarantee it will rain at some point, which is why we’ve included this coat from the masters of rainwear, Danish brand Rains.

The company that embraces the rain and combines pieces with function and fashion. While a Rains Jacket should be a staple piece in every wardrobe, we had to shout about the Padded Nylon Coat, perfect for the upcoming season.

The Padded Nylon Coat is a longer weatherproof coat, giving you that extra level of protection. Not only is it water-resistant but it is also made with a padded nylon shell with a thermal eco-down material, ideal for when the temperature drops.

We love that it the Padded Nylon Coat is a great all-rounder. Perfect for any season due to the lightweight insulation. In a staple black colour, it is guaranteed to suit any look and keep you well protected during the autumn months.


POP – Full Button Jacket

POP Full Button Jacket

This jacket from Amsterdam brand POP Trading Company, is a perfect example of a classic autumn jacket. Perfect as we transition from the warmer days to the colder ones.

POP is well known for its skateboarding culture and utilitarian aesthetics and designs. Creating youthful looks while still pulling their inspiration from their Dutch heritage.

The Full Button Jacket is made from corduroy, offering the classic autumnal feels and ideal for adding that extra layer when it gets that bit chillier. It offers a relaxed fit and is an easy option for the autumn, instantly giving off those chilled vibes.

We think the colour of the jacket emulates autumn perfectly and the style offers something different than the previous jackets mentioned in this list. The corduroy fabric gives you that bit of warmth and protection but also creates a less bulky outerwear option for the season.


YMC – Beach Jacket

YMC Beach Jacket

The London based brand has created a timeless and staple piece for any outerwear collection for the AW22 season with the Beach Jacket. With modern wardrobe staples enthused to subvert expectations, this jacket brings a freshness to our outerwear pieces.

The Beach Jacket is ideal as we draw towards the colder end of autumn. Made from a textured Italian wool blend and a brushed cotton body and sleeve lining, it is designed to keep you warm during the cooler months.

We love the neutral colours and heavyweight fleece material; it is a jacket we plan on wearing long into the season. The shawl collar also adds another level of interest to the jacket while offering additional warmth and protection. This jacket is a talking piece, something that we’ve been drawn to since we first saw it.


Carhartt – Car Lux Vest

Carhartt Car-Lux Vest

We couldn’t create an autumnal outerwear list without including a gilet. Perhaps a staple wear of the transitional months, the gilet is great for layering when the weather isn’t quite too cold or too hot.

Carhartt are the American pioneers of workwear, with authentic designs with an added contemporary twist. Durable clothing designed to last, their outerwear pieces are no different, giving you the hardwearing protection during the colder months.

The Car Lux Vest is perfect for giving you that extra layer of warmth, made from a heavyweight 14.2oz cotton-poly blend it will keep you toasty throughout autumn.

A great thing about gilets is that you can wear them on their own or layered underneath a jacket, if you opt to wear the Car Lux Vest on its own, you’ll be protected from the water-repellent protection. This gilet is great for a relaxed look to throw over any outfit for that added warmth and protection.


These are just five outerwear pieces we’ve added to our curated wardrobe, check out the rest of our jackets and gilets options on the website or in-store.
