Cable’s Guide to Choosing a Winter Coat

With winter upon us in the southern hemisphere, a winter coat is a must-have wardrobe essential for braving the elements and keeping stylish when you are out and about. With a range of coat styles and shapes to choose from, it can be hard to know which style is best for you and how to wear each one. At Cable Melbourne, we have built a curated style guide to help you navigate the wonderful world of coats and ease the process of picking the best coat suited to you. 

 

HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT WINTER COAT

From hooded coats to short coats, to collarless coats and classic coats - and even raincoats - we have broken down each style to assist you in choosing a winter coat that will further elevate your look this season.

 

HOODED COATS

A hooded winter coat not only gives you added protection from the cold, it also gives you an ultra stylish element that makes you stand out from crowd. Our Preston Wool Coat is one of our winter coat longline styles that comes in sleek dark navy and fresh grey marle. The coat features an oversized hood, double-breasted button front closure, plus handy side pockets. Crafted from 100% premium wool, this fashion piece offers you the perfect blend of quality, warmth and style. If you are looking for winter coat that is going to last you for many years to come, our Preston Wool Coat is an excellent starting point when building a winter capsule wardrobe.

For a casual day look, pair the Preston Coat with a chunky knitted jumper, such as our Animal Mohair Jumper, plus waxed leggings and sneakers.

  

 

SHORT COATS

A truly stylish short coat this winter season is the Parker Wool Coat. This classic pea coat features a luxurious camel shade and is the perfect choice of women’s outerwear to achieve a neutral, tonal look this winter. Pair with our camel-coloured Cashwool Cowl Jumper or Cashwool V Neck Jumper, plus our Faux Fur Wrap in camel for a fully coordinated and layered look.

Add a pop of colour to your winter coat collection with the Audrey Wool Coat in Berry. This coat has a short length with an added flared sleeve, giving it a feminine and stylistically sophisticated attitude. The fun and bold burst of colour of the Audrey Coat makes it the perfect addition to any evening outfit. Wear this colourful coat over a dress with stockings, boots and elegant jewellery.

COLLARLESS COATS

Stand out from the crowd in the Celine Check Coat. This collarless style features a navy, yellow and white melton check print, and is crafted from a winter-weight wool. Designed and made in Australia, this coat has a drop shoulder for a relaxed silhouette and makes it great for layering. For a casual look, pair with jeans and sneakers, or dress up with waxed leggings and boots.

The Spencer Coat has also been designed and made locally in Australia – and is perfect for chilly Australian winters. It is crafted from pure wool in a timeless herringbone print and is a classic style to last year after year. The black and brown colour combinations pair well with almost any tone, especially earthy tones, which can create a stylish tonal look.

Crafted from 100% Australian Merino Wool, the Fern Milano Coat is a knitted style that is a mix between a lightweight coat and a heavy cardigan. This collarless style is made with our Milano knit structure and features an elegant cable-knit detail on the sleeves and pockets. Proudly made in Australia, this coat is a longline style and can be worn with a belt around the middle to cinch the waist.

CLASSIC COATS

It doesn’t get much more classic than a tailored wool coat – especially in neutral tones like camel. A tailored coat is a timeless, trans-seasonal piece that will carry you through the years in style and will compliment any outfit. Our Finley Drape Wool Coat is a wardrobe classic featuring a longline style with a shawl collar, a concealed button closure and a self-tie belt to cinch to your liking. It takes your outfit from daywear through to the evening with ease, looking stylish and smart wherever you go.

RAINCOATS

For the perfect addition to your outfit, a brilliant travel companion or a funky waterproof layer protecting day-to-day attire from the rain, a PAQME raincoat is your go-to. Our PAQME range will provide you with the brand's new waterproof fabric whilst remaining lightweight. As hinted by the name, the PAQME raincoats pack away into a small pouch for easy storage when travelling or on the go.
This season, we have two styles in a fun black and white tiger print. We have the Crop, which is a bomber style jacket with a gold exposed zip and hood, as well as the Everywhere Raincoat, which is a classic rain trench coat style with a collar and belt.
