Red Valentino Jacquard Coat – £675.00 (available from Harrods)

With the cold weather evidently here to stay for another couple of months, a staple winter coat is a fail-safe investment. This gorgeous Valentino coat is the ultimate craving piece. The sequin and crystal mesh collar makes a great change from fur, whilst the jacquard pattern gives the piece a feminine, yet vintage, feel. This coat is perfect for day or night, and is definitely on my wish list for 2013.

Studded Sleeve Coat – £55 (Warehouse)

This coat is the perfect combination of style and practicality. The structured tailoring and exposed zip give the piece an edgy touch, whilst the arms and shoulders are adorned with silver studs, again bringing this coat an element of glamour. The durable Polyester material also means that you won’t have to compromise being warm in order to look good. Overall, a great buy for winter.
