Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend had clearly never owned a killer selection of winter coats. Any self-respecting fashionista knows that a quality, timeless coat is the ultimate accessory!
Find yourself the ideal winter coat and you’ll create fabulous outfits again and again for years to come. Long, short, padded, faux fur lined – the options are endless!
Luckily, we’ve scoured the internet (and a few magazines) and have narrowed our search down to just five essential options you need to see you through the winter months. Here are our favourites to buy into this season:
The first thing that springs to mind when we think “winter coat” is faux fur. Channel your inner Patsy Stone from Absolutely Fabulous and opt for animal print or go bold with a bright block colour such as royal blue or red.
Nothing says “glamour puss” quite like an oversized fur (faux of course, darling).
Longline wool winter coats
A longline coat is a sophisticated addition to any winter wardrobe. Easily dressed up for work and dressed down with a pair of jeans and sneakers, a wool coat is a fantastic investment piece.
Keep yours in tip-top condition and it’ll be a wardrobe-building staple season after season.
Puffer jackets have made a comeback, partly thanks to big Shaq (google Man’s Not Hot) and the Hadid sisters. These incredibly warm coats are just as stylish as they are practical, meaning you’ll get the thumbs up from any risk-averse parent.
Battle the elements with a hooded puffer or create interest with a belt around the waist.

Aviator shearling jacket
Pair an aviator shearling jacket with a pair of sunglasses and black jeans and you’re onto a winner.
This statement jacket is surprisingly easy to wear and is best styled over a casual outfit for a lowkey look. Remember the Zara version that catapulted itself into stardom in 2017? Find your replica and join the hype.
For off-duty style, weekend brunches and winter walks, nothing beats a long, hooded parka. The best thing about these versatile coats is the hood (very handy for rainy days, protecting your blowdry from the wind and popping to the shops incognito).
Easy, warm and practical. What’s not to love?
