The 5 Best Winter Coats To Shop This Season

Rugging up has never looked so chic.

It’s time to bring the winter coats out of the cupboard again.

There’s nothing so chic as throwing on your favourite coat when the weather turns cold. 

In fact, we’d argue it’s one of the benefits of the winter months. The right winter coat can elevate any outfit and make you feel snug as a bug, even if you’d rather still be in bed with the electric blanket on.

Whether you’re after a classic trench or going for something more on-trend like vegan leather, investing in a good winter coat is crucial. The hardest part is deciding which coat to splurge your hard-earned dollars on. Are you feeling a caramel colour à la Sienna Miller in Anatomy of a Scandal? Or going for something more classic, perhaps along the lines of Catherine Deneuve’s double breasted jackets in Belle du Jour.

We’ve rounded out the best winter coat options to buy now — and while a coat will be one of the pricier items in your wardrobe, we’ve also found a few budget-friendly options. Style and savings? Win-win.

Which Type Of Coat Is Best For Winter? 

The right winter coat can last you years, which means choosing the right cut, material and style is important. 

The first thing to consider is the climate you live in—a winter in Tasmania is going to be a lot colder than a winter in Brisbane. This means that while you might be in love with a heavy wool coat on Instagram, a lighter material might be more practical for your location. 

Secondly, its important to find a silhouette that’s more timeless than trendy if you want your coat to last more than one season.
