Thinking about where to buy winter coats? We’ve got you sorted. Explore this season’s essential styles (which will have you covered for every situation). From chic wool coats to classic leather jackets, these are the must have styles to add to your wardrobe this year and beyond.

The Classic Trench Coat

There’s a reason the signature trench coat is top of the style stakes year on year, and that’s because their timeless silhouette flatters everyone, whilst elevating pretty much any ensemble with ease and adding a polished edge. Whether you’re keen to trial a forever-reliable camel hue, or prefer to try a printed, contemporary alternative, it’s worth adding one into your wardrobe.

Reiss Ivory Florence Cotton Blend Trench Coat – £145

Ted Baker Natural Cristta Check Trench Coat – £145

Chic Wool Duster Jackets

One of the best women’s winter coats, bring an elegant flourish to the everyday in a wool or wool blend coat, in particular a duster style. Depending on your preference, look to an ankle-skimming offering, or a shorter piece as a nod to the ever-stylish military trend. We love Reiss, IRO and Mango’s offerings in particular…

Reiss Sand Mandie Wool Blend Coat – £125

IRO Grey Irois Wool Blend Coat – £195

Mango Beige Handmade Wool Coat – £75

Quilted Coats

Comfort prevails with the quilted coat – let’s be frank, it’s the next best thing to literally wearing a duvet. A long style embraces this sentiment, and due to the nature of the material, is temperature-proof, meaning you stay warm when needed, but also it ensures you don’t overheat. A cropped alternative keeps things casual, and perfects off-duty looks with ease.

Mango Camel Belt Quilted Coat – £49

Hobbs London Black Lianne Quilted Coat – £75

Shearling Jackets

Vintage-inspired and straight from the catwalk, the shearling jacket has well and truly seen a resurgence over the last few years, and frankly – we’re thrilled about it. Perhaps the warmest winter coat of all, this one should be reserved for the height of the cold season, and layered with your cosiest knit and a midi skirt for a seriously stylish look.

IRO Grey Eirick Wool Blend Coat – £369

Shearling Boutique Black Merino Shearling Biker Jacket – £329

Waterproof/Padded Jackets

Relive your childhood favourite (with a more mature, fashionable edge) and invest in a padded jacket for a casual-cool alternative. They come in a range of colours, from pretty pastels to matte-black, are often cut in a flattering, relaxed fit, and are the perfect accompaniment to your everyday loungewear and jeans-and-a-Tshirt combination.

All Things Leather

Whilst luxe leather can have a high price-point, it’s an investment worth making, as with the right care, it’s sure to last for years. Of course, a biker jacket is a timeless option, but this year, leather blazers, leather trench coats and long leather coats are also en vogue. Dependent on how creative you’re feeling, you’re sure to find the perfect option for you.
