Your winter essentials: the coat edit

Always a sound investment, a new winter coat is where our thoughts turn as soon as the clocks go back. Whether it’s raining, blustery or bright and crisp, we have a coat to suit every weather, occasion and outfit.

The quilted coat

When the weather takes a turn for the worse, this is your best bet. Warm, water-resistant and with a hood, the quilted coat is a must-have for the British winter. Centigrade really nails this design, and this is definitely one to add to your list. Long and filled with feather and down, this coat will keep both you and your outfit dry on rainy days.

Like this? Why not check out this shorter coat, and this number with a faux fur trim, both from Centigrade.

The faux fur

On icy days, nothing says sophistication like wrapping up in faux fur. Stylish and super snuggly, a faux fur jacket can make your go-to T-shirt and jeans combo stand out from the crowd. This longline coat from Rino & Pelle is not only on-trend for the season, but it’s relaxed fit means you can wear a thicker jumper underneath to stay warm.

The bomber

If you’re not out facing the elements but still need that extra layer of warmth to your outfit, a classic leather-look bomber jacket is the way to go. Lightweight yet on-trend for this time of year, a bomber is a great option for days where you’re in and out running errands. Kim & Co’s Croco Pleather jacket can be teamed with jeans or dresses for an instantly sophisticated look.

For more lightweight options, check out Rino & Pelle’s padded jacket, or try this luxe faux suede design from Frank Usher.

The coatigan

Not quite a coat, not quite a cardigan, but hitting the ultimate middle ground between the two. Coatigans are a layering staple when it comes to your A/W wardrobe, working especially well with knitwear to create a perfectly curated look. For some added interest, this Centigrade number offers a chic checked print that’ll look fabulous worn with block colours.

Crazy for coatigans? Why not go for a chevron print, or a trimmed edge to edge style, both from Centigrade.

The gilet

Looking for a little something extra to wear under your new coat? Adding a gilet to your repertoire gives you a fantastic layering piece that instantly elevates your ensemble. This faux fur gilet from Centigrade is equipped with a hood, and the luxuriously soft fabric can make even the most casual outfits feel a touch more sophisticated.

For a classic, quilted look, have a peek at this MarlaWynne gilet, or if you like to rock the boho-chic look, try this design from Helene Berman.
