London has been freezing lately, with ice-cold gale winds from Scotland battering the island. So snuggling up warm this winter is essential. Wool coats are a smart classic, but they are not really enough to keep you nice and warm in arctic temperates, so down jackets are the way to go.
As the puffy down can add bulk, make sure to go for a tailored down jacket with a belt or integrated stretch insert at the waist like the jacket from Stefanel below, to define your figure. My heavenly cuddly down jacket with toggle fastening and fur collar is from Aperein, a high-end Austrian specialist for down jackets.
