Best duvet coats for women to wear this winter

12 cosy duvet coats to wrap up in when you actually venture out of the house

Posted by for Fashion

As we hit peak winter, wrap up warm in a duvet coat – the sartorial hug you didn’t know you needed. Here, we’ve rounded up the best offerings for both form and function. 

As we settle into the third round of national lockdown there will naturally be some habits we resurrect from round one, namely baking and long walks to get some fresh air into our housebound lungs. While walks in the middle of summer were a welcome break, getting ourselves out of the house when the winter chill has set in is less appealing.

But screen breaks are essential, and studies have shown that using your lunch breaks to get out and about can have a positive impact on everything from your concentration and creativity to your overall enjoyment of the work you’re doing, as well as obvious physical and mental health benefits. All you need is a duvet coat. 

Meet your winter style hero.

Previously an item of clothing preferred by artic explorers and Arsene Wenger, the now highly coveted duvet coat has had something of a fashion do-over. Scoring you a lot more style points than before, this long-line puffer-style coat is padded to create layers of insulation to ensure you stay warmer for longer, ideal for long winter walks. 

For the most part we will be chucking our duvet coats on with our leggings and hoodies to get out of the house, but don’t overlook the style points of a duvet coat when dressed up. Opt for a length that hits mid-calf and wear yours with a chunky cardigan, cropped jeans and stomper boots for an effortlessly cool look. For those wanting something less conventional than another black coat, try out khaki or cream.
