A guide to this season’s winter coat trends

After celebrating Bonfire Night this week, I’ve definitely started to feel like we’re in the cold temperatures of Winter now. Maximum faux fur has been the essential being dragged out of my wardrobe lately, and of course my fluffiest and warmest coats.

With help from some great tips over at Farfetch, I have put together this Winter Coat Guide to keep you looking bang-on trend and keeping warm this season.

The Trends

  1. Leather Trench

I love the mysterious yet sophisticated look this coat can bring to any Winter outfit. The leather trench is perfect for pairing with your night-time party wardrobe- sheltering you from showers as you make your move to the bar.

My Pick- Black Faux Leather Trench Coat, Missguided £50

2. The Great White

A white coat should be a key staple to any fashionista’s wardrobe. I absolutely love the colour because you can effortlessly wear it with any other item, during this season or in colder evenings of Summer.

My pick- Cream Belted Wool Blend Coat, Topshop £89

3. Military Cape Coat

Keeping you warm and snug, this military number is the best coat to ensure to stay on the frontline of style this Winter season. Pair with stomping lace up boots and work this military look.

My Pick- Black Military Cape Coat, Wallis £52.50

4. The Ankle Grazer

This bang-on Victorian trend coat is a real flattering style, shaping to your silhouette, and making you stand out in the crowd with its floor-sweeping length. A real showstopper for the colder months.

My Pick- Stone floor-length coat, New Look £40

5. The Hot Fuzz

Wild thing fur is the only thing you’ll want to snuggle into when the icy chill creeps in- a trend that has been particularly high on my fashion agenda for this Autumn/Winter season.

My Pick- Blue turndown collar faux fur coat, pinkqueen.com $85

6. English Lady

This style showcases the proper English heritage coat, featuring Prince of Wales checked prints and tweed textures. Top this classic look with a simple roll-neck jumper and brogues for a comfy and sophisticated off-duty winter look.

My Pick- Lapel striped red tweed coat, Romwe $85
