I love winter as it is a time to dress up all cosy and layer up. However I hate covering up a well thought out outfit with a boring coat, surely I am not the only one? Here are just some of the amazing coats that can be found in stores and online right now:
One thing that I have noticed this year are the masses of boyfriend style coats that are present in stores/online. One of my favourites has to be this pastel blue one from MissGuided (11), it is the perfect transition piece as the shade of blue really can be worn in any season. If £39.99 is not a low enough price for you then have a look in Primark, they have plenty of coats like this one! Also of a similar style but slightly more fitted is this gorgeous burgundy one from New Look (9). The colour is enough to make you stand out anywhere!
Another trend that I have noticed is tartan and grid like patterns. One that stood out to me is from New Look (5) also at £39.99. This coat strays away from that of typical tartan colours such as reds or greens and includes navy and different shades of pink. This is why I would love to own it - it follows the trend but is unique. Another tartan design that I love is from Topshop (1), this is slightly more expensive at £89. The toggled coat features not only a checked design but also patches of plain grey. Most importantly it has a hood, which is highly important when living in Scotland!
Faux fur also has a major impact in fashion right now. This is goes from the hood on a classic khaki parka (4) to a statement collar on a leather jacket (6). Although I would stay as far away as possible from the rain with fur, these coats would be perfect for chilly days. How gorgeous is the black coat from MissGuided (10) that combines leather, fur and a longer jacket for just £64.99. That is definitely a great investment as it could be worn year after year!
