When it comes to outerwear, you can never be too keen in your search for finding “the one.” The fact is that coats are often the first items to start dropping in for autumn, so you have to be quick off the mark to secure the best styles. Just look at that Marks and Spener jacket, for example. it was only online for a matter of hours before it adopted the dreaded “not in stock” label. And in previous years, both Totême’s scarf coats and The Frankie Shop’s quilted iterations have had to be restocked multiple times due to increasing demand. And while we’re all for an It coat, we also like to stick to the brands that consistently serve up timeless and stylish outerwear collections, and for this, we always head to COS.
Alexis Foreman is wearing a black maxi coat from COS.
With its clean aesthetic and fuss-free mantra, COS is, of course, a destination for minimalists. Excelling in everything from crisp shirting to love-forever knitwear to tailored trousers and coats, it’s basically a one-stop shop for all your elevated basics. But with its mix of silhouettes and plethora of coloured and neutral iterations, it can be tricky to narrow the list down to just one COS coat we expect to see everywhere this season. So instead, we’re going to show you 18 that have garnered the attention of every editor in our office. From the classic belted camel coat to leather iterations, these are the COS coats catching our eye this season.

This shade of brown is just so chic.

I just had to include this amazing double-breasted style.
