Winter coats to see you through the chill

There’s still a way to go before spring blooms and while the chill of winter remains in full force, we bet you’re not going anywhere without a trusty coat right now. But have you fallen into the rut of wearing the same one every day? We certainly have! So, we’re turning to our Winter Essentials edit for inspiration. Here are the top ten winter coats we’ve uncovered that’ll be working their way into our wardrobes.

Wrap up warm

Everyone needs a parka ready to fend off the cold spells. But just because it’s practical, doesn’t mean it can’t be chic. We think this classic parka from Ruth Langsford ticks all the boxes. The warm quilted padding and faux fur trim on the removable hood is perfect for keeping you protected on chilly days, while the contrasting metal hardware details add a stylish element.

When it’s especially icy outside, a padded coat like this faux down longline one from Centigrade offers a thicker fabric to help keep you super toasty. Whether you’re walking the dog or have a day of running errands, these coats are fabulous options for protecting you against the elements.

Rainy day style

Even if it’s not actually freezing, there’s always a chance that it might rain. This is where the mac comes in. Lightweight and waterproof, macs are great for layering over jumpers and long-sleeved tops when the rain starts to pour. For a fun option, we like the Coast Coastal coat from Joules. The bold colour will brighten up gloomy days while keeping you nice and dry in the process.

If you prefer a print, this packable Waybridge coat offers a modern take on the classic raincoat that’ll look gorgeous paired with jeans and boots (or your best pair of wellington’s!). We’ll be keeping these two on hand for when it starts to cloud over.

Foxy faux fur

Faux fur is timeless, glamorous and always on-trend. Plus, it’s versatile enough to wear to any event. One we love and are sure you will too, is this beautifully soft block-colour faux fur coat from Centigrade. It offers a luxurious feel and comes in an exquisite colour palette of rich tones.

We also can’t keep our eyes away from this animal print faux fur coat from JM Fashion by Julien Macdonald, which will instantly add a bold and playful sense of style to your outfit. Both coats are ideal for keeping you cosy, wherever you’re heading, and also provide a fantastic way of bringing elegant designer style to your day-to-day looks.

Casual checks

A check-print coat in a classic cut will elevate any outfit and is a must-have for winter. Our first stop for one? Helene Berman. Offering different takes on timeless check prints, there’s something to suit everyone’s taste. We’ll definitely be wearing this gorgeous blue and black check coat as well as this super chic College coat. Both give a structured fit that will contrast beautifully against a pair of jeans and boots for a sophisticated ensemble you’ll want to wear all season.

Fit for the occasion  

With Christmas and New Year’s Eve around the corner you might have more plans in the diary than usual, so having a coat to wear with your favourite party dress is a must. If you’re heading out in a classic LBD, try this pink coat from Dannii Minogue, available in Petite or Regular. The vibrant shade will look stunning contrasted against darker colours, and the longer length is perfect for wearing over a dress or skirt.

If you’re looking for something more neutral but no less eye-catching, take a look at the gorgeous houndstooth coat from Helene Berman. With concealed buttons and long faux fur cuffs, this design will be a chic addition to your coat rack.
