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

Aren’t we all missing fashionista Millie from Made in Chelsea?!

Millie’s Style Diary blog

I am definitely feeling Millie-withdrawal symptoms. Fashionista Millie, now Mrs Manderson, never failed to bring weekly style inspiration to our television screens. My Monday fix of Made in Chelsea is definitely lacking a major style icon.

Those of you who agree, have no fear because… Millie’s ‘Style Diary’ blog brings us everything we need in a daily fashion fix up.

Millie’s fashion blog posts her style secrets in a diary of her day-to-day wardrobe choices. A gallery of images poses Millie modelling key trends of this Autumn/Winter season including: leopard print, statement necklaces, leather skirts and fur coats and cardies to keep us looking stylish whilst feeling cosy to survive in this freezing winter.

Each image is captioned with where each item of clothing is from to help us with ideas to add to our Christmas list or our fashion shopping list for our days off.

Be cosey AND stylish this winter!

My Jasper Conran fur headband from Debenhams

My Jasper Conran fur headband from Debenhams

I absolutely love fur headbands and have wanted one for the past two years, ever since I saw the gorgeous Pixie Lott looking amazing (like she does in everything) wearing one one of her outings. I wanted to buy one last year for fireworks night but its the type of item in your wardrobe that is a big risk.

A fur head band is one of those things that when you put it on you just can’t help but ask yourself… ‘Do I suit this, or do I just look like and idiot? And sometimes you just answer with… ‘It’s probably best to leave this trend to Cara Delevingne’

Well I was brave today! I manned up and bought one and I promise you all it is the best accessory I have ever purchased. As soon as I stepped out into minus degrees tonight, I thought to myself where would I be without this warm raccoon on my head? Of course it’s not really the real fur of a raccoon, I only do faux! But my head instantly felt cosy. I didn’t even care if it didn’t suit me. I was warm!

I definitely recommend you go out and buy yourselves one. I bought mine from Jasper Conran in Debenhams and with the 20% store discount and my extra staff discount, I was in for a winner with it costing under a tenner! What an absolute bargain for something that is bang on-trend this season as well as preventing me from hypothermia!
