The coat is the centrepiece of the winter wardrobe. It’s the item we end up wearing the most throughout the season, and, if you’re just like us it’s probably your most-anticipated buy. The best high street winter coats this season have been designed to wrap you up but also let you stand out.
Boy does a coat work hard – both practically and stylishly – and, as it can often be the spend that takes the most out of our budgets, so it should. We need them to be comfortable enough to cosy into, transcend occasion so they are always appropriate, be big enough to accommodate autumnal layers, as well as being able to bring any ensemble together.
We’ve done the hard bit for you by tracking down the best coats on offer from the high street. Some champion current trends – Benneton’s patent red option sings from the same trend sheet as those seen at Miu Miu – while others are wear-forever styles that should be spotted in everyone’s staple wardrobes. Zara’s classic trench is the ultimate case in point.
We’ll meet you in the queue…
