For us that live in the UK, coats are a way of life. We don’t really get a summer so they basically become a second skin. As coats are items we wear on a regular basis, it’s important to invest in a good one. There are plenty of styles to choose from. Although it may be tempting to choose a cheaper coat, it’s better to spend more money on a good quality coat as you’ll be wearing it a lot.
These are a good everyday coat. It’s definitely worth investing in a parka jacket for winter. They tend to have a hood which is perfect for the UK where it rains 99% of the time. They also have a lot of room so you can layer up underneath. For everyday use it may be best to choose a neutral colour like this one available from Miss Selfridge.
The trench coat is more suitable for autumn as they tend to be lighter and may not keep you as warm when the winter months descend. You can go for a classic black one like this one from ASOS or if you’re like me and love burgundy for the autumn check out this trench coat from Debenhams.
You feel warmer just by looking at faux fur coats. They may seem like they are for the more daring and confident but there’s nothing stopping you from rocking one this year. If you feel daring enough, check out this coat from Missguided available in a variety of colours.
I’m sure many of us wore puffer coats as kids which were normally on the huge side. Now, they’re back in fashion but with a better style. This is a nice casual coat to wear and will certainly keep you warm! Prettylittlething have a great range of puffer coats and I particularly like this one as it’s available in a variety in colours and comes with a detachable hood which is always handy!
These just scream elegance regardless of what you’re actually wearing underneath. They are great if you have a party or dinner to go to so it doesn’t ruin your outfit. The ones with faux fur attached add an extra touch of class. If you’re willing to pay a bit more, you can find a longline coat that is thicker for extra warmth. I personally love this coat from ASOS as I love to still wear colours in the winter and the fur collar just adds that extra glam and warmth.
To find good quality coats make sure to check out sites such as ASOS, Miss Selfridge, Topshop, New Look, Prettylittlething, Missguided and Debenhams. They sell a range of coats and often have discount codes available!
