With the quick approach of shorter days and colder wind, it is officially time to get used to putting on those additional layers before stepping out in the morning, and slowly transition into early winter, or we like to call, the coat season. And if you're familiar with the Canadian winter, it is no news that your closet should be well-prepared before that freezing rain or the sudden, early snowfall hits. So here, we've prepared a list of 3 coats that are sure to come in handy this season, with style and warmth guaranteed!

Candy coated

Change of seasons often brings transitional weather that is neither too cold or too warm.  That's why for starters, we would recommend starting light with feminine coats that can act as the perfect top layer that can pull any look together.

Light in weight and also in colour, our coats this season come in dreamy pastels to add a refreshing splash of colour and style to your wardrobe. Though, you shouldn't underestimate the warmth these coats can provide -- the soft hues and texture may remind you of cotton candy, but the wool-blend composition is packed with warmth, making these coats long-lasting contestants that may outlive many items in your winter closet. 


As for styling, these coats are beautifully detailed with trendy upgrades: waist-cinching belt that will give you a feminine, elegant silhouette; oversized lapels to give a modern edge; and hidden snap button closure for a smooth, sleek look. Thanks to these features, these coats are easy to wear with almost any outfit. With office wear, we recommend the belted coats to accentuate the clean, polished look. With jeans or something rather more casual, try our car coat that looks great open or closed -- the pastel blue hue will look especially great with your favourite blue jeans, or lighter-coloured sweaters!


For an extra cold day, don't forget to protect your hands, neck, or ears as well with essential winter accessories. Our pastel-coloured leather gloves are a great option to style with our soft, feminine coats!

Three's better than one

If your usual style is more laid-back and urban, or if you're looking for versatility more than anything, then a multiple-layer jacket like this 3-in-1 is your best friend. 


Featuring a soft shell outer layer and a down filled inner layer, you can create three looks with just one coat. For milder weather, throw on the outer shell for light wind protection. On a slightly colder day, wear the inner layer alone as a down jacket. For maximum warmth and utility, wear both layers to stay warm AND protected from sudden freezing rains or snow falls, as this coat is water-repellent as well.


Wearing this jacket will give you a very utility-chic look, with its adjustable drawstring waist and multiple functional pockets. We recommend pairing this with jeans (blue or black), and a rather casual sweater. For an ultimate streetwear-inspired outfit, put on a sweater or a turtleneck with a fun print and a pair of sneakers. This jacket will also serve you great with more athleisure-inspired outfits as well, when worn with your gym/yoga clothes or lounge wear.

The down-town

Looking for a true winter coat you can wear all season long? Why not try our stylish down-fill coat, guaranteed to keep you warm (nearly) from head to toe?


Not only is this coat packed with warmth thanks to the down filling, but also, it features stylish details that give the coat an impeccable finish. For example, there's a tie belt to help the coat take its shape and avoid looking too bulky. This belt, alongside the oversized lapels help to create an extremely modern, sleek silhouette to render this coat wearable on any day. Its extra-long length is another great feature that follows the oversized trend without overdoing it. 


The quilted pattern gives the coat a cute puffer look, meaning it will look great on casual outfits with sneakers or booties. But we also love maximizing its feminine details by adding this to a dressier outfit, over a dress or a jumpsuit. The coat will feel like the warmest (and trendiest)  hug ever! Don't forget to add a little shine and a personal flair with jewelry to elevate your look even further.
