Have you fallen into the rut of wearing the same coat every day? We have! So, we’ve turned to our Winter Essentials edit for inspiration. Here are the top ten coats that’ll definitely 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 a parka can’t be chic. We love these coats from Joe Browns and Centigrade. The lightly padded style and fur-lined hood on the Joe Browns design is perfect for keeping you comfortable on chilly days, while the jacquard panels and embroidered details add a unique element. The Centigrade coat offers a much thicker feel, ideal for when it’s icy outside. Whether you’re heading into the office or a day of running errands, these coats are fabulous options for protecting you against the elements.
Rainy day style
So, even if it’s not that cold, 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 start to pour. For a fun option, we like the Quayside 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, the Joules Coast jacket offers a modern take on the classic raincoat that’ll look gorgeous paired with jeans and knee-high boots. We’ll definitely be keeping these two on hand 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. When it comes to faux fur, Rino & Pelle is our first stop. We love these two coats. The faux fox fur coat offers a luxurious feel with a colour palette of rich tones, whereas the longline faux fur coat comes in a selection of fun designs that will instantly add a sense of stylish playfulness to your outfit. These coats are ideal for staying warm on your way to an evening event and offer a fantastic way of adding elegant design to your day-to-day repertoire.
A check-print coat in a classic cut is a must-have for winter. An over-sized fit can create a feminine and flattering silhouette, whereas a stylish check print will elevate any outfit. We’ll definitely be wearing these coats from Centigrade and Helene Berman. Although offering different takes on timeless check prints, each coat feels very current. Whether you prefer Centigrade’s monochrome design or Helene Berman’s larger window pane checks, both coats give a structured fit that will contrast beautifully against a pair of jeans and white trainers for a sophisticated casual look.
Fit for the occasion
With winter comes lots of exciting events, 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 coat from Helene Berman. The vibrant tone will look stunning contrasted against darker shades, and the longer length is perfect for wearing over a dress or skirt. If you’re looking for something neutral, take a look at the gorgeous Astrakhan coat from our very own Ambassador Ruth Langsford. With a textured outer and a shawl collar, this coat will be a chic addition to your coat rack.
