The coat edit

Fashion contributor Adrienne Galloway finds this winter’s top five coats

1) Short Anorak With Fur Collar, £79.99 Zara

This short anorak is perfect if your main priority is staying warm. The detachable fur adds an element of sophistication to the traditional puffa jacket design. This beaut is available in black and brown, but opt for it in the mustard colour for a seamless transition from autumn to winter.

2) Faux Fur Coat With Oversized Collar, £75 ASOS

Every winter there is an explosion of faux fur, so much so that following this trend can go either way. The regular fit of this coat is perfect for keeping warm and not drowning the rest of the outfit.  The soft material is very warm but warning: Keep an umbrella at hand if you want to keep that faux fur looking fresh.

3) Boyfriend Coat, £30 Matalan

Wrap up warm this winter with this black boyfriend coat. Let’s face it, as much as you can see yourself rocking a bright yellow coat with eccentric patterns, black will always have your back. The dropped shoulders and concealed buttons create a simplistic blazer design that can be accessorised with scarf, gloves, and a hat to add a personal touch. Everyone could do with a LBC (Little Black Coat).

4) Belted Mac, £70 ASOS

Nothing screams sophistication more than a double-breasted camel mac.  With Burberry having an almost identical coat for the current season at the whopping price of £695, it’s no wonder this coat is so popular. This coat can go without accessories as the belt and pocket detail say it all.

5) Four Pocket Parka, £99.99 Zara

This coat just screams practicality, which is not necessarily a bad thing in preparation for blistering cold weather. The waterproof outer shell and hood make getting caught in a downpour of rain a little less horrible. The pockets offer lots of storage space for you mobile, iPod, notepad, snacks, pet goldfish—whatever you fancy really.
