Temperature-wise, Hong Kong’s winter is far warmer than that of New York’s or London’s. A mere 12 degree Celcius in December might even be considered as a warm winter day in cities with a temperate climate, but coupled with humid air and coastal wind we definitely need nice thick coats to keep the weather at bay. Keeping practicality and, of course, style in mind, we have created a series of HULA approved and HK-winter-appropriate coats to keep you warm and fashionable throughout the coldest months in the city.
A SPLASH OF SPRING
If you can’t wear your favourite spring dresses during the winter, then wear your favourite spring colours. Indulge yourself in colourful coats for a little pick-me-up during the winter slog. Wear it with matching colour tights to amp up the look!
Not a fan of over-the-top coats, and want to stay within your chic and stylish comfort zone? We got you. A structured long coat can instantly add shape to your outfit, especially after layers and layers of knitwear.
On a less chilly winter day, us subtropical dwellers can mostly get away with just wearing a classic trench coat. Nothing keeps the humid winter breeze at bay and add a sophisticated edge quite like these trench coats. And if you’re after something less conservative, try Chanel’s metallic spin on the classic outwear.
THE SUNDAY JACKET
Sometimes, we just want maximum chicness with minimum effort. Throw on these bomber jackets with your favourite joggers and combat boots. Not only does this combination ensure stylishness, but also warmth and coziness, perfect for a Sunday stroll down the city lanes.
What better ways to elevate your winter outfit than a statement cape? The blanket-like and wool-blend capes are a must for a cozy night out (or in – we don’t judge). Style it with a belt to give your outfit some shape or just wear it like super(wo)man!

In Hong Kong, we probably hardly every need a full-on fur coat. Why not try these HULA-approved part-fur coats? Apart from not buying any real fur products, the only sustainable alternatives are faux fur and passing down already bought fur products.

Some coats are just better looking with the zip up. Some give a more serious aura and others might project a cooler biker look. Whichever one you prefer, it for sure provides more warmth, something everyone needs this winter.
