The coolest thing about cold days? You can wrap yourself in one of these 7 winter heaters
Of all the beautiful things that fall brings – golden leaves, cozy evenings – purchasing a gorgeous new coat has to be one of the most welcome.
After the practical poufs we bundled up in last year, now is the time to indulge in something more stylish. A suitable, grown-up, beautifully cut coat that makes an outfit sing. The High Street delivered, with seven great options.
There are plush textures with fluffy faux fur in petrol blue at Hush (first from left) and luxe emerald lapels at LK Bennett, while an oversized caramel plush coat at River Island makes an impact, especially s ‘it’s paired with black knee-length boots. .

If you want to go for the pattern, a monochrome checkerboard will always look chic. Whistles nailed it, so go quick as it’s destined to sell (fourth from left).
For another stylish classic, Jigsaw’s Maxi City wool coat is an investment that will pay off (sixth from left). It has a reinforced sub-collar, which means when you roll up the collar, it will stay there. And the leather trench coat is back. If a black pattern seems a bit too Matrix to you, try a dark chocolate brown instead.

For a trench coat with a versatile touch, the rather nifty 3 in 1 coat from All Saints consists of a long sleeveless vest and a separate short, square jacket with contrasting black sleeves (third from left) . The two pieces can be worn separately or stacked on top of each other. It is a feat of engineering.
Now that we no longer have to socialize outdoors, practicality can take a step back and style can take center stage.
