This is Officially the Coziest Coat Trend of 2020

We've all been there: It's 7 a.m. on a Tuesday morning and the autumnal chill is starting to creep in, which makes leaving your bed that little bit more difficult. All you want to do at this point is roll to your desk (most likely your home right now) cocooned in your duvet, slipper-clad and clutching a mug of tea. Sadly, this is never really going to be a socially acceptable way to attend a Zoom meeting, but I am happy to tell you that one of this season's biggest coat trends is not a million miles away from this dream scenario.

The clue is in the name: The duvet coat (also known as quilted, padded or puffer) is essentially the sartorial equivalent to a duvet day. These babies can be chucked over any outfit and you'll instantly feel toasty warm, which is great news for those of us that hate having to lug around a million layers during the coldest months of the year.

While in previous decades this trend has had a more teen-focused aesthetic, for Fall/Winter 2020, it's all about elegant, grown-up creations (undoubtedly thanks to the chic stylings of Bottega Veneta and Prada). Of course, there are still plenty of classic, sporty iterations to go around, but I'm loving the more unusual designs that are breaking the puffer-coat mould, such as & Other Stories's quilted interpretation, which has plenty of old-school housecoat vibes.
