15 great winter coats guaranteed to make you happy about the cold weather

Posted by for Fashion

The baltic temperatures are so worth it when you get to wear a chic new coat…

When it comes to personal style, who doesn’t like to shake things up? A midi dress one day then a blazer and trusty denim the next; experimenting with a new look is the key to keeping fashion fun. But no matter how varied your style is we’re willing to bet that there’s one item of clothing you wear day in, day out: your winter coat. 

Whether you swear by your ankle-sweeping camel coat or only have eyes for your puffer jacket, every woman can think of one fail-safe coat that has faithfully seen her through the cold months. Chances are that coat is hanging on the back of your chair right now. In which case, don’t read this next bit out loud: the time has come to cheat on your winter coat.

This season there are so many amazing new styles catching our eye for all the right reasons. With endless coat options to suit every style, whether you want to tap into this season’s animal print – as seen at Victoria Beckham, Max Mara and Givenchy – or opt for a fuzzy new friend in the form of faux fur, shearling or a teddy coat, there is a coat to suit your every mood. Make a statement in a colourful check or swaddle yourself in a cashmere cocoon, with the new season coats that offer timeless appeal. 

There may still be the odd sunny autumn day but the cold weather has firmly set to freezer mode. Stylist’s fashion team has tracked down the stylish coats that you’ll want to wear everyday.
