    131K  Views

    The hottest piece of clothing on a runway during the winters (literally, too) are jackets and coats. We've seen labels like Gucci, Chanel and Balenciaga, repeatedly bring their A-game when styling and experimenting with this piece of outerwear, basically proving that you can stay cosy and comfortable without skimping on style. And we want this for ourselves too! But let's be realistic, we cannot afford to give a kidney away just to own ONE jacket from the brands we just mentioned. So we did the next best thing, hand pick 10 statement jackets from cool Indie (and some non) labels! 

    PS. Keeping in mind that Indian winters aren't unbearably cold in most parts, we've added a couple lightweight jackets to the mix too.

    Trench coats have made fashion statements for decades and for evident reasons, they are easy to wear, style and pull off! If you want a more unusual take on the trench, consider this black and white checked panelling handloom trench coat from Fabnest. It's a fun and chic option to wear to a late night party or for when you want to jazz up a look that's simple. We must point out that this won't keep you too warm though because the fabric is pure cotton. But the upside is that it is breathable and lightweight. Sizes XS to 3XL is available.

    Serving us high-street winter fashion - something you would spot in a New York or London, is this knee grazing wool wrap coat from The August Co. Made from sustainably sourced recycled wool and recycled fiber blend fabric, this coat has a flap overlay detailing, deep pockets (yayyy!) and a waist tie-up to help accentuate curves. It is also warm enough to brave the North Indian winters. The August Co. has sizing up to 3XL and is open to taking custom size orders too.

    Uniqlo almost always comes out on top in the winter jacket/coat department, so no way were we leaving them off this list. You will find several statement coats on their website but nothing screams high fashion like this sophisticated down or puffer jacket. Part of Uniqlo's popular collaboration with lengendary German designer, Jil Sander, this jacket is every bit high fashion with its cocoon-like silhouette and assymetric cut. This jacket is perfect for really cold winters, especially if you're travelling. It's highly insulated and has a durable water-repellent coating. We also love the semi-shiny satin finish! Comes in three colours off-white, black and navy in sizes S to XL. At almost 10k (INR 9,990), this is an expensive buy but it's off Uniqlo's designer series and totally one-of-a-kind, so save up!

    Since we're talking about making a statement, there's nothing quite like daring to wear a bright colour in the dead of winter! That too a sunshine yellow! But do it and do it in style, wearing this cropped denim jacket from ISU. It's edgy and oversized and will turn heads wherever you go. It will also keep you warm enough on light winter days and on the others, you can always layer. Aside from the colour, the in-your-face stitch detail on this denim, is quite popular at the moment (especially jeans) and you get to sport in a jacket that a pair of jeans with this pick. Sizes XS to 2XL available.

    Navyas Fashion is killing it with their range of hand block printed and quilted winter jackets (LBB has a banging collection) of which our absolute favourite is this patchwork, quilted number. It standouts for all the right reasons - uniqueness and design (Mandarin collar, deep pockets, wood buttons included) but it's also comfort max. Made of pure cotton fabric, it's lightweight and because it mimics the "it" quilted jacket trend, it's also insulating. In all, this might just be the most perfect winter jacket that fuses statement style for some winter-time pizzazz. Sizes S to 4XL available.

    Ikat Print Bomber Jacket

    Bomber jackets are cool, but this pick from Threeness made of handwoven ikat is cooler. Designed for those who like the sporty but feminine look, this one feels like comfy lightweight summer jacket that with enough layering can be worn in the winter time too. What's statement about it is the desi print, of course, another example of how much we love the indo-fusion style. Sizes XS to 2XL available.

    Printed Reversible Jacket

    If loud, proud and showy is the memo, slip into this super dope printed and checkered black cotton reversible jacket from Label Graph. Not built for the winters but style, you can still sport this look in the colder months by styling it wisely. We like the psychedelic printed side of this more than checkered, it's so much more edgy and different. It can also be buttoned up and worn as a shirt (has a shirt collar). Sizes XS to 2XL available.

    Quilted Shacket

    From H&M's conscious collection comes this cool shacket, for the uninitiated, this a crossover between a shirt and a jacket. It's oversized and looks like a long shirt but is made of a thicker material, in this case 100% recycled polyester in the shell, padding and lining. The padding is light with quilted seams, so easy to move around in it, oh, and it has multiple pockets, open chest pockets, and discreet pockets in the side seams. The colour (powder blue, two other options available too) is what makes this a solid winner to us and that we can take on frigid days in style. Sizes XXS to L available. 

    Animal Printed White Jacket

    Another bomber jacket makes the cut but this one more for it's fun animal print and snug fit. Unlike the other coats you may want to take off after you reach your destination, this one you can wear as part of your OOTD/N without breaking into a sweat. This is because it is entirely handcrafted (artisan-made) of breathable pure cotton. Sizes XXS to 3XL available.
