Best wrap coats for women: from Arket, Max Mara, Joseph and more


ow we’re firmly in the depths of winter, it’s time to upgrade your outerwear to a super cozy design that can handle the sub zero degrees that are most certainly heading our way. A style that ticks all of the boxes is the wrap coat.

Thanks to the robe-like structure, you’ll feel bundled up on even the coldest of days, as comfortable as you would be swanning around your home in your favorite dressing gown. Typically crafted using a heavyweight wool or an exceptionally soft cashmere, nowadays there are even puffer and quilted options for a lightweight, contemporary alternative that will keep you just as warm, if not warmer.

When investing, don’t be afraid to spend a touch more on a style you’ll wear season after season. Stick to the versatile colors like black, grey, neutrals, navy, or a simple houndstooth or herringbone and timeless silhouettes which are unstructured through the shoulders and relaxed throughout.

The best part? Whatever you wear it with, it’s sure to add a layer of snuggly elegance to any look. From denim to dresses, heels to trainers, even if you’re in a rush, all you need to do is throw it on and tie it up. If you’re unsure, look at the wrap coat styles of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, or perhaps check out any recent autumn/winter show by luxury Italian fashion house Max Mara, an expert in classic design.
