The end of summer sales are upon us (as is the weather, sniff sniff, tear) and the stores are filling up with the new and gorgeous Autumn/Winter collections, the undisputed best thing about the change in the weather. Winter is not here but it’s high time you steered away from?those summery dresses and shorts and start considering?your fabulous autumn winter wardrobe, especially before the best buys are gone.

Autumn/winter?is perhaps our favourite time of year to dress for?because you can do so much with your outfit; finishing it off with the?perfect coat. Coats are so much more than a way to cover up and keep you warm; they’re magical. They can do up a whole new outfit when you pair them with the right accessories or they can make a statement on their own. Shopping or the perfect coat can?also be a tricky affair, however. You need something that looks good, on trend while simultaneously serving its function of keeping you nice and toasty. Getting the right winter coat can be a bit of an investment, the best ones are never cheap, so you don’t want to get it wrong. What’s more, you don’t really want everyone to have the same one as you, which would take away some of your uniqueness.?Now is the perfect time to start thinking about buying your coat, because the worst thing is finding a coat you love and it suddenly running out of stock. A?truly upsetting moment that more than a few of us have experienced. So, without further ado, we have gathered some dreamy coats that are worth buying now, and guaranteed to see you through for countless winters to come.
