There’s an enduring notion that Australia doesn’t get cold enough to wear a coat, but it’s a thinking flawed in two particular ways: firstly, as anyone that’s been Down Under this winter, it’s been bloody chilly, and secondly, the traditional form of the coat has evolved in recent seasons, with designers offering innovative, lightweight takes on the classic, making it the perfect item for mild weather.
