With the cold weather setting in and the clocks changing, winter is well and truly approaching. The change in weather, dark nights and crisp leaves also marks the time when we start to pull our winter coats out of the depths of our wardrobes, but why not treat yourself to a new coat this year? We wear them every day and often fail to notice when they start to look tired.
Our personal stylist, Linsey, has pulled together this season’s key coat trends to help you choose something to suit your style and needs.
The trench coat is an essential part of any wardrobe! It is a classic, simple piece that looks effortlessly stylish and remains on trend year on year. A trench coat can carry you through from day to night, by dressing it down for a perfect off-duty day look, just pair it with jeans, a white t-shirt and trainers, or wearing it on top of a dress, paired with heels, for night. Here are some of my favourites from Phase Eight and Jaeger.
Phase Eight RRP £139 Outlet £95
Jaeger RRP £250 Outlet £140
When the weather turns cold, there’s no better way to stay warm and fashionable than a puffer coat. Once seen as a bit of a retro trend back in the 90s, last year saw the return of the puffer jacket and this year the trend is bigger than ever. It is clear this is a trend that is here to stay! I love these from Trespass and Tommy Hilfiger.
Trespass RRP £149.99 Outlet £59.99
Tommy Hilfiger RRP £205 Outlet £144
Injecting faux fur into an outfit can instantly transform a casual look into a sophisticated get-up and often more is more! Faux fur coats are a cosy way to wear this trend and are the ideal night out companion, or you can choose to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe with a coat with a detachable faux fur collar, which provides you with two styles for one! My favourites are these from White Stuff and Phase Eight.
White Stuff RRP £125 Outlet £55
Phase Eight RRP £175 Outlet £59.99
