Trust Me: & Other Stories' New Scarf Coat Is Destined to Sell Out Very Soon

On those early winter mornings when you peer out the window and find yourself met with an angry grey sky, it can take all of your might to not turn around and retreat back into bed. But when an extra hour cosied up has to remain merely a dream, the second best thing you can do is wrap yourself up in some cushioning fabric and find yourself a warm drink. Whilst I can't deliver your morning coffee, I can wholeheartedly recommend to you the perfect cosy coat. Bridging the gap between scarf and jacket& Other Stories has created the chic one-and-done coat that editors and influencers are already flocking to this season. Falling to just below hip height, the cool-toned grey jacket features a button fastening and a scarf-inspired panel that drapes over the shoulder or around the neck.

Who What Wear UK editor-in-chief Hannah Almassi wears & Other Stories' Wool Scarf Jacket (£205).

Firmly loved by the Who What Wear UK staffers, editor-in-chief Hannah Almassi was the first in the team to bag the new-season It jacket. Wearing hers with a grey wool skirt, Hannah created an easy tonal look, utilising one of the season's favourite colours. Riffing off the growing scarf-jacket trend which traces back to Toteme's Embroidered Scarf Jacket, high-street retailers have been readying themselves for this season with fresh takes on the ingenious design. Whilst other offerings remain compelling, I continue to be drawn to the & Other Stories style for its boxy finish, neat lines and supreme attention to detail.

Balancing a neat finish with a slouchy silhouette, we predict that the wool-blend coat is likely to sell out this side of winter. To get in there first, shop the style here, or read on to discover our other favourite scarf jackets below.
