A standout coat is the best investment you can make each year as it begins to get colder. It’s what you’ll wear every day and often the first thing people will notice, so we can’t blame you for wanting to make a style statement, while also looking for something warm and cosy. To find a coat that’ll last throughout winter and beyond, check out our guide to the most stylish coats to see you into next season.
Bang on trend
According to Elle, navy has overtaken camel this year as the key colour for winter coats. A versatile navy jacket will smarten jeans and dress down black, making it the ideal colour choice for almost any occasion. If you’re after a shade that will see you right through to spring, take inspiration from the S/S 2017 catwalks and go bold with fuchsia pink. Sure to give even the simplest outfit a refreshing twist, a coat in this shade will brighten your mood each time you put it on.
Fur to keep you warm
What can be snugglier than a big faux fur jacket to keep you warm well into winter? They add a splash of glam to any outfit and look great styled with skinny jeans to balance out the volume of the fur. Fur can also be dressed down to surprising effect, and you could try keeping the look more casual with flared jeans.
Trends that keep on giving
There’s certainly no sign that bomber jackets will go out of fashion any time soon and there are a range of padded and longline ones that will work even on the coldest days. If your style is more on the girly side, take advantage of the trend for embroidery that’s everywhere on high end and high street items at the moment. The great thing about embroidery is the florals give an air of spring even in winter, too.
A parka never goes out of fashion
The casual classic that keeps on giving has to be the parka, be it khaki, black or coloured. As well as having a range of fur coats and bombers, we love Tu at Sainsbury’s selection of parkas. Their navy quilted one hits two trends on the head with the colour and the shape, while many of their styles feature a hint of faux fur around the hood for added style points.
Borg it up
Pepping up the humble denim jacket, a borg lining provides some contrast if you’re going double denim but also keeps you toasty warm. Borg isn’t just for denim though, as this signature lining softens any jacket, from leather to cord. If you’re looking for something to match the comfort levels of a faux fur coat, go for one that’s borg all over – even on the outside.
