I’ve been wearing my coats more regularly now. Even if it’s warmer in the afternoon, I need one in the morning while walking the dogs at the very least. The easiest coat to grab for just about everything is a Barbour Beadnell. I have a few that I’ve been gifted/purchased over the years. You don’t need more than one, though. They’re solid coats that will last you a lifetime and well worth the price. (Imagine passing yours down to your kids one day!)
Two years ago, I traveled to England and Scotland with Barbour to learn more about the brand. It was an unreal trip for a ton of reasons, but after touring the factory, I was completely obsessed with the brand and their dedication to quality.
Tuckernuck recently put out their Barbour guide, and even though I already love the brand, I find it helpful to see how they style the outfits. (True story: I wish the Tuckernuck girls would style me every day.) It also inspired me to share how I’ve styled my Barbour coats over the years.
This is the easiest outfit and one that I wear at least once a week in the winter!! The LL Bean Fisherman Sweater works perfectly under the Beadnell. (It runs very small, so I recommend going up at least a size!)
Throwing on a Barbour is a great way to “winterize” white jeans. I am still obsessed with this look two years later and fully plan on recreating it soon. I love the way the sweater makes the plaid lining pop a little bit more.
This look is great for days when layering is essential! You have so many different options this way. You can just wear the shirt; the shirt + coat; the shirt + sweater + coat; the shirt + sweater… you’re set for a full spectrum of weather!
And the easiest outfit ever? See above. This is perfect for everything from sightseeing in a new city, attending class, running errands, etc.
Depending on where you are, this might not be the most practical of an outfit. But let me tell you, it was just perfect while traveling in Ireland this summer where it was warm but also windy.
This was taken years ago, but I still try to recreate it every year… I love it that much.
