Coat, jacket, outerwear, whatever you call it this is one of the most important purchases of the autumn winter season. You may be looking to invest in something that’ll last you years, or just looking for a cheap and cheerful piece that’ll cover off the seasons biggest trends, either way it’s an important buy.
I find that to get the best buys you need to start coat shopping as soon as the autumn season stock hits the high street, but as the weather has started getting colder much later in the autumn months people want to shop for coats when it’s cold. The retailers have realised this and there is as much chance of nabbing a good coat now as there was at the beginning of the season….hurrah!
So, what’s hot and what’s not? To be honest there is a huge selection of styles this season, covering every trend and taste out there. If you want key looks then there’s military, shearling, leopard, velvet, faux fur, embroidered details or a parka….phew!

These styles can be costly, but choose wisely and you could end up with a purchase that’s bang on trend for now and will also last you into the coming years. If you prefer something a bit more classic focus on the cut and colour, so navy, black, grey or camel, with a cut that is flattering to your shape and will work with every outfit option in your wardrobe.
With all that said here are a few of my favourites out there right now.
