Winter-time, with its reliance on layering, accessories, and variety of footwear choice, gives people a chance to be creative with outfits. To really finish off your carefully-arranged winter garments, however, you need a winter coat; more often than not, the coat is the essential winter piece.
Women’s coats, in particular, come in an overwhelming array of styles, so we’ve listed 5 versatile winter coats that should be in every girl’s wardrobe. Whether you want to be snug or stylish, these coats tick all the boxes.
Puffer coats have had something of a renaissance period following the explosion of vintage streetwear on the fashion scene, but with good reason. The coats are simultaneously fashion conscious and warm, perfect for casual looks, gig-going or if you want an urban look.
Puffer jackets usually come in a variety of bright colours, giving you room to be expressive. Layer up with a hoodie underneath for extra comfort and warmth. Modern cuts have given the once retro jacket a modern edge, allowing you to dress it up or down.
The parka is a classic in women’s fashion for a reason: it’s fashionable and utilitarian. Appropriate for rain, cold, snow and everything in between, investing in a parka is worth the money.
Olive and navy are the most popular colours, with a faux-fur hood being a good option for extra personality and warmth. The simple colourways allow for easy pairing with basically anything, making the parka your next go-to for the cold.
Sherpa Denim Jacket
The denim jacket is an item almost everyone owns. The winter cold (sadly) isn’t conducive to chucking on your old denim jacket on every day, but another option remains: the Sherpa. Sherpa denim jackets are just as comfortable as regular ones but come with extra warmth via a Sherpa wool lining.
The jacket has been a staple in blue-collar work in colder climates. If you’re looking for a fashionable option in the warmer winter period, then the Sherpa’s pedigree should speak for itself.
The quilted jacket is an essential item for those difficult in-between months. Comfortable, classic and adaptable, the coat offers warmth without sacrificing its sophisticated edge.
Quilted jackets can be long or short in a whole variety of cuts. Whatever styling choice you go for, you can assure it won’t leave you freezing!
From slaying business meetings to attending a messy one in the pub with the girls, the trench coat can be used for anything. The classic piece of clothing should already be in your wardrobe, it can keep you warm on a brisk evening walk or still winter’s morning without sacrificing any class.
Most trench coats are waterproof, plus can be easily worn over a few layers should it not be warm enough. If you’re looking for a snug coat for everything including the office, then you need a trench coat. Go bold with a bright red or camel brown or go classy and reserved in black or navy: you really cannot go wrong!
