5 Fabulous Winter Coats

As a self-confessed autumn/winter lover, there’s nothing nicer than pulling on a brand new winter coat. Here are five of my favourite coats right now.

If you want value for money, this reversible coat is a terrific buy. Worn with an exposed back, it’s an ideal option for evening. The oversized lapels create a touch of theatre, while the?wool/silk blend offers warmth without bulk.

Reversible two-tone coat, €275 at uterque.com

Cream and blush tones look luxurious in winter and act as nice counterpoint to all the dark neutrals and jewel tones in the stores right now. I like the oversized shape of this piece, and the fact that it’s detail free. It feels very modern and fresh.

Oversized wool coat, €195 at & Other Stories

I like that this H&M parka is navy rather than traditional khaki. Oversized padded jackets are particularly on trend this season, but this is a year-in-year-out failsafe buy. Who wouldn’t want to wrap up in this on a wintry morning?

Navy padded parka, €59.99 at H&M

We all revert to black in winter sometimes. I find the best way to elevate a sombre look is to inject a shock of colour, such as this cobalt blue coat. It’s a fantastic shade?for pale Irish skin tones and will pair just as easily with brights?as it will with neutrals. The piped pocket detailing adds a subtle but chic finishing touch.

Long double-sided wool coat, €450 at Maje

This is more of a “coatigan”. I really like that it has a hood – it adds a practical but insouciant vibe to the piece. Layer under?an XL parka or?a masculine-style duster coat for a laid-back cosy feel.

Long hooded jacket, €49.95 at Zara
