20 of the best winter coats to buy this season

On the search for the perfect winter outerwear choice? Well, we have found 20 of the best coats you can purchase right now. 


When the 10 commandments were set in stone, they left out one very important law. This rule is: always invest in a good winter coat.

Though not part of the holy edicts and not directly endorsed by Moses, coats are most definitely part of the fashion rule book. Outerwear is both a necessity and sartorial saviour. Winter outfits are never complete without the sass that a coat delivers.

The simplest of outfits are enhanced. A simple t-shirt and jeans combo is strengthened when paired with an oversized checked cover. While a “night on the tiles dress” is complemented by a faux fur design.

Coats also protect you from the elements. With dipping temperatures, pelting rain and harsh winds, the coat will be your most ardent protector. Through frosty nights and chilly mornings, it will never leave your side and chooses to keep you fabulously fashionable.

This season’s styles

Every AW brings with it a new wave of outerwear choices and this year is no different. From mock croc delights with fur trims to longline parkas, there is something to suit all types of style sensibilities.

Classic patterns such as leopard print and houndstooth are still in the fray. Oversized and belted styles appear in cobalt blue and plaid. While faux fur and teddy style coats prove our sense of touch must be stimulated as much as sight.

Seventies style coats have become the style of the season, with both Kitri and House of Sunny replicating the success of last season’s Saks Potts sellouts. And quilted styles are reimagined, like the khaki maxi puffer from Asos complete with borg collar.

Wear yours with a knit, leather leggings and white trainers or with a killer dress and heels at night for an edgy and modern look.
