Four of This Season’s Best Coats
The time has finally come; those bitterly cold mornings which quickly become a 24-hour occurrence – the desperation when running towards any warm-looking establishment (including work) – and finally accepting that you can’t rely on your trusty leather jacket anymore as a legitimate ‘cover-up’.
But, with the ups and downs of winter weather comes one true fact: you get to fully embrace wearing a winter coat.
Just because winter’s here, doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish whilst battling the cold – the right coat can be the best style-staple investment you ever make.
So, we’ve narrowed down the best of this season’s coat trends, taking into consideration multiple shapes, colours and textures to suit everyone’s personal preference.
The Shearling Biker
The perfect combination of snuggly yet tough. The definitive aviator-style structure with soft faux fur trims makes this coat the most versatile of them all. For 2017, it has received the ultimate update, now coming in plush pastel pinks, jewel-toned berry colours and basically any colour you’re looking for. River Island’s selection is especially impressive, boasting even a bright citrus orange shade.
L-R: Marks and Spencer £89; Topshop was £79 now £49; Dorothy Perkins £44; River Island £90.
The Alternative Check Coat
A fresh take on the 1920s. This heritage-inspired coat is perfect for those wanting to effortlessly inject a bit of pattern to jazz up a plain outfit. From electric colour clashes to cute tie cuffs, it’s the little details that make this coat stand out.
L-R: Marks and Spencer £99; River Island £100; Topshop £79.
The Best of Brights
This winter is all about bringing a bit of fun-shine to these grey, dull days. There’s no doubt that a vibrant, head-turning coat is one of the best ways to lift your mood and your outfit. Simply chuck on over a monochrome ensemble or with one other contrasting colour and it instantly looks like double the effort. Another unavoidable bonus: it’ll make other people smile too.
L-R: River Island £85; H&M £79.99; Missguided £65; Warehouse was £99 now £74.25.
The Practical Puffer Coat
Yep, the 90s puffer coat is back and its better than ever.
Not only is this coat thick enough to keep you properly warm, it looks best teamed with a completely casual outfit, meaning minimal effort required and maximum style points. You also have a huge choice of textures – from velvet to shell to metallic – no matter what you pick, all you have to do is put on a puffer coat and a matching scarf and your outfit has instantly gone from average to something special.
L-R: New Look £29.99; River Island £95; Topshop was £65 now £45; ZARA £95.99.
