Perfect Pairings | Cool Coats & Minimalistic Boots

Midway into winter, you may be thinking you missed your chance at looking utterly stylish during the colder temps, but the reality is, we’re just getting started. And this is the best time of the year to pick up some staples you will likely be wearing all the way through April or May. It may be a reality you don’t want to face, but the season isn’t over yet, so you may as well look good drudging through it. We recommend coats by the likes of Scotch & Soda, Maiden Noir, All Saints and Understated Leather. Pair the outerwear with understated footwear, and you’ve got a match made in sartorial heaven.
