crisp walks and fireside nights, the real appeal of
winter is fulfilling our sartorial fantasies – be they of the
sweatpants in public wearing or crystal ball variety. From
ginormous puffers to chic raincoats, these 15 winter coats will
instantly upscale your (very) laid-back look from pyjamas to

Bacon Cropped Padded Jacket


Big. Bold. Bright. Everything a puffer jacket should be. With dramatic collars
walking down every fashion week runway this cropped style coat from
Bacon is a winner. The bright yellow will inject some much-needed
sunshine into grey days.

Shrimps Leopard Print Faux Fur Jacket


Anyone who tells you that leopard print’s moment is over doesn’t
know how to style it – and definitely hasn’t read Hilary
Alexander’s new book, Leopard. This Shrimps number is deceivingly versatile; wear
with cropped jeans, a grey hoodie and trainers to instantly update
the most simple of outfits, or over a dress and boots for some
extra glam.

Ganni Petunia Rain Jacket


A European winter is almost always accompanied by relentless
downpour so a cool raincoat is an important staple. This transparent Ganni option is perfect for
those who consider no crime worse than a great outfit hidden. Plus,
its wide sleeves accommodate the thickest of knits. Pair with
matching bucket hat and tote bag for ultimate rain-proof

H&M Teddy Faux Fur Coat


Unbelievably soft and plush, you’d be forgiven for mistaking
this H&M coat for a designer label. With
large notch lapels, concealed pockets and an oversized fit, this
huggable coat is the sartorial equivalent to a warm cup of tea; all
for under £100.

Mango Faux-Fur Quilted Coat


While your wardrobe is probably bursting with leather jackets
and stylish trench coats, let’s be real – when it gets into the
minuses, you’ll be reaching for the coat that most resembles a
duvet, so best to make it a fashionable one. This Mango piece combines the best of both –
cosy enough to keep you warm and chic enough that you won’t feel
underdressed going to a fancy restaurant: win-win.

Saks Potts Foxy Pink


This Danish brand is the name on every fashion
editor’s lips (and coat label). A belted leather trench with a
hand-painted lining, lush fur collar and cuffs is winter fashion at
its best. With a hefty price tag to match, this is more
aspirational than actual – head to vintage shops to find

STAND Jonna Faux Shearling Jacket


Basically your favourite leather jacket but winter-fied. The
thick faux-shearling collar, cuffs and pocket detail lend extra
warmth to this slim-cut jacket, while a cracked exterior gives it
that perfect worn-in look (which would take years in a leather
jacket). Size up for a looser fit if you’re looking to layer with
chunky knits.

Uniqlo Ultra Light Down Compact Coat


This quilted coat works well by itself but its
real appeal is as an inner layer. Warm but ultra-thin, it fits
perfectly as extra padding under any jacket you deemed too thin for
winter. It also folds into a small bag which is a major plus when
travelling. Go buy it while it’s on sale, you won’t regret it.

Mango Structured Wool Coat


The LBD of the coat world, you can’t go wrong with a good
woollen coat. This one from Mango is anything but bland,
striking the balance between flatteringly oversized when undone and
expertly tailored when worn with the accompanying wide belt. Pair
with a frilly dress and cowboy boots for a fresh, feminine look. It
also comes in dark grey if the beige is, well, too beige for

Arket Fluid Wool Pea Coat


Double breasted with buttoned epaulettes and a back yoke, this
Arket pea coat has a vintage look and fit. Wear it and you’ll look
like you’ve borrowed it off your dad, making it the nostalgic piece
of our winter dreams. Seamlessly transitional, you can wear this
classic coat through to the chilly months of January.

Other Stories Denim Faux Shearling Jacket


Between the fur trim trenches and the waterproof puffers, winter
wardrobes tend to favour the extremes. Neither fabulously formal
nor overtly athleisure, this & Other Stories jacket hits that
sartorial sweet spot. Dark-wash denim and a shearling lining make
it on-trend, while its large workwear industrial pockets and an
oversized fit mean it’s surprisingly pragmatic.

Whistles Wolfie Faux Fur Coat


Not one for the faint hearted, this faux-fur coat will make a
statement and keep you warm in the process. With an uneven hem and
untamed fur, this Whistles coat is a wilder take on the more
polished looks of Charlotte Simone and others of that ilk. Pair
with slim-leg trousers and a silk cami top – you won’t be needing
any extra warmth in this.

Soia & Kyo Quilted Shell Hooded Down Jacket


Soia & Kyo has accomplished the impossible; a chic, long puffer jacket. Practically a
wearable sleeping bag, this quilted (and hooded) coat is as stylish
as it is warm. It’s also surprisingly flattering thanks to its
classic black colour and fitted silhouette which slightly pinches
in at the waist. Duvet days are no longer for the housebound.

Zara Quilted Water-Resistant Coat


When in doubt, head to Zara. This quilted jacket with its
snap-button placket is country-girl chic and the perfect final
layer to any casual winter outfit. Plus, we always love a
detachable hood – so practical, so fashion.

Zara Double-Breasted Corduroy Blazer


With both corduroy and blazers having a major moment, opt for
this Zara piece which combines the two trends in one jacket. A
pastel-blue hue gives this masculine classic a feminine touch, and
a soft knit or fitting turtleneck will take this autumnal staple
through to winter.
