So it’s finally got cold enough for you to bust out that big winter investment coat you forked out for. Good for you, pal! Problem is, even though your new layer is ready to roll, you’re only halfway done. Have you considered what to wear underneath that cold-crushing garment to show it off to full effect? No? Fear not. We’ve got a few solution options for you below…

Best for a bomber

If you’ve been following the life and times of Kanye West, then you’ll have subconsciously learnt a valuable lesson in rocking a dope military bomber. Pair yours with a plain monochrome hoodie and achieve the sartorial status of out-in-public Yeezy. This stealthy yet stylish combo seems to have become his go-to dress for dodging the paparazzi - and looking super fresh doing it.

The camel coat – a heavyweight classic that should always be the centre of your outfit – needs little underneath (unless you want to create a personal sauna for your bod). But throwing one over a crewneck or long-sleeved tee seems a little… jarring. Go for a plain roll-neck instead, to really set your look off with some smirky Brit-style sophistication. Y’know, the ‘I do my weekend grocery shopping at Thomas Dux’ kind of vibe.

This one's for when the weather really starts to get arctic. Honestly, we can’t remember a time when a pea coat wasn’t an essential for those about to be neck-deep in winter. All those naval vibes paired with a strong association to Hollywood heroes (Redford and Nicholson for starters) mean you can spend that bit extra on one, safe in the knowledge that it’ll never fall outta fashion. And while you’re splurging, add a ribbed turtleneck or cable knit jumper to your basket to partner with it, so you can nail that stylish seafarer look.

There are a few things in life that you should never, ever mess with. And a parka is a coat so perfectly suited to beating winter that its furry hood, modish colourway and long length needn’t be changed. Honour tradition by sticking to the simple classics underneath: a grey crewneck sweater will do the trick, and keep the comfort levels at maximum, too.

Best for a trenchcoat

Curveball alert: we’re not partnering the classic trench coat with a jumper, as is usually expected. No, this time it’s all about adding another jacket. That’s right, we’re making an exception to our own rule for the simple reason that a trench thrown over a denim jacket is downright baller. Considered, stylish, utilitarian and snug, it’s a dream combo that sounds all wrong, but looks so right.
