Shawling: how to wear your winter coat into spring

Bomber jackets were one of winter’s staples. Here’s how to wear your padded version into spring (according to the catwalk)

Abomber jacket that costs almost £1,000? Hard sell. Yes, it’s from Vetements, the most talked-about label of the season, and, yep, it’s palindromically reversible (bear with), in that there’s a zip on the back as well as the front, but who has £915? No one, that’s who. You can borrow the idea though, because half the shtick is in the styling – on its models, Vetements had both zips undone and let it hang off-shoulder. Logically, this is also the best way to wear any thick, padded, winter MA1-style jacket into spring (and back into winter again – padded jackets were on the autumn/winter catwalks at Demna Gvasalia’s Balenciaga debut and Stella McCartney).

It will feel a bit (very) odd at first. Try wearing it with a T-shirt in a contrasting colour or a polo neck until the weather behaves. It’s really the opposite ofshoulder-robing – winter’s nattiest trick of wearing your coat or jacket on your shoulders: arms-free, like Superman, just with better reviews.
