Time to pile on the utilitarian jackets – the season is awash with protective outerwear in bright hues
2. The Protective Jacket
Layering: the shows were awash with the styling cue, piling jackets over parkas over raincoats. The result? A functional, utilitarian approach to outerwear that screams urban armour. While shapes and fabrics are practical, colours and patterns are not (one of our favourite loud references is from Balenciaga). If you pull one key shape from the protective jacket trend, opt for a parka in statement-making hues.
