It can be easy to forget about fashion and just bundle yourself up in the thickest looking jacket when the weather gets colder. However, the right coat can really pull a winter outfit together, giving you instant style while still keeping the cold out. Stray from that typical oversized hoodie and jeans look we’re all guilty of reaching for with our guide to discovering which winter coat you should invest in this season.
Faux shearling lined looks
Faux shearling lined jackets were named as the ‘It Outerwear’ item by The Fashion Spot and it’s easy to see why. These ultra-warm pieces are super soft and can be found in most styles of coat. An oversized lined denim jacket is a must have as the seasons start to shift or go for leather if you want a more edgy style. Try adding more layers as it gets colder; a simple zip-up jacket or knitted cardi can be hidden away behind the outer layer, although thick roll neck knitted jumpers look super casual yet stylish with these soft lined coats.
Parka jackets are an absolute essential for every woman, especially as the cold creeps in. Not only are they incredibly easy to style with skinny jeans and biker boots, but they can also easily be dressed up over a lace bodysuit and denim skirt. Superdry have ticked all the boxes this season when it comes to their collection of parkas, including faux fur trim hoods, toggle button fastening and on-trend camouflage patterns. If you’re looking for an all-rounder type of coat that suits most outfits while keeping you warm, a parka is the one for you.
If you tend to go for a sporty or urban look, an oversized puffer jacket would suit your style perfectly. The athleisure trend has been huge this year, so don’t let the weather stop you sporting leggings and comfy trainers every day of the week. Swap the leggings for cosy skinny joggers for extra warmth, add a padded puffer jacket and you’ll be able to tackle the sporty style this winter.

Stay glam – but warm – all year round with a long wool tailored overcoat. These coats tend to come in neutral-toned colours, making them easy to match with current items in your wardrobe. Sophisticated yet casual, overcoats are easy to style for work or casual drinks with a loose shirt and skinny black trousers. Don’t assume the longer style is just for tall girls, these styles can be found in most petite sections to accentuate your legs. If you want a high-end fashionable look that will still keep you warm, an overcoat is definitely an option to look at.
Faux fur jackets are another glamour option that is sure to keep the cold out. An ideal pick for those who like to stand out from the crowd, a bomber-style fur coat is a must-have if you like to look stylish all year round. This cosy style of coat is surprisingly easy to wear with most outfits, especially over simple black skinny jeans, chunky heeled Chelsea boots and a white roll neck jumper for a trendy winter look. Wrap up warm with a faux fur coat if you’re after a dose of glamour with your everyday outfits.
