After an unseasonably warm autumn, there's no denying that now’s the time to dig out the winter coats  (*sob*) and treat yourself to a new one while you're at it. With the catwalks awash with cutting-edge cover-ups, it can be difficult to know where to start. Let us inspire you with these high-fashion picks, so you can face our inclement British weather in style.


1. Blanket Coats

Ever since the who's who of London Fashion Week modelled monogrammed wraps emblazoned with their initials, we had a major case of coat envy. Part wrap, part blanket, the new sweep of cosy cover-ups must be supersized, slouchy, and button-free. WE WANT.

2. Oversized

The trend that just won’t go away, majorly spacious cocoon styles were the coats du jour gracing the backs of fashion’s elite outside all the shows at fashion week. Answering the autumnal urge to nestle up as far from the elements as humanly possible, these cold-weather saviours often feature a longline cut, making them an ultra-stylish head-to-toe solution.

3. Fairytale Chic

Designers embraced all things fairytale this season, with collections that featured chainmail-style hoods, key-to-the-castle prints, and Little Red Riding Hood capes. Follow in their footsteps with a nod to storybook Gothicism – a princess coat in deep blood-red will turn heads for all the right reasons.

4. Windowpane Checks

Chic monochrome checks are the last word in new-season style, and cropped up again and again in the AW collections. Modern and minimal, try layering checks with dark blooms or bright block colours, for a look that channels off-duty model chic.

5. Wrap Coats

A snuggly wrapover coat is the chic outdoor equivalent of a well-tailored dressing gown, and who doesn’t wish they could wear that outside the house every day? A draped neckline and waist belt are must-haves with this style, to keep the look feeling feminine.

7. Cold-weather pastels

Remember the rush to buy THE perfect pink coat last winter? Well the buzz is back again and here to stay, with a crop of Crusha-coloured coats bringing ice cream chic to grey sky days. Don’t pack the sorbet shades away just yet; pretty pinks are back, and in a big way.

8. Teddy Bear Textures

As temperatures drop it's time to (literally) embrace the trend for fuzzy, faux fur textures. If the idea of a calf-length coat tufted with fluff doesn't fill you with hope, dip your toe into the trend with a cosy faux fir gilet - perfect for throwing on with a lightweight knit, jeans and ankle boots.
