With the temperatures swiftly dropping and winter winds fast approaching, it is time to transition from the lightweight jackets of autumn to full on winter warmers. But with so many options on the high street, which style do you choose? This season, the choice is yours (weather dependent, of course); you can go for full-on parkas or puffa jackets to hide you from the wind, rain and snow, or, if the weather behaves, you can cuddle up in a big faux fur. Shop the maven46 edit of the best coats to buy this winter below.

Belted Coats 

For those winter events, dinner dates or meetings, nothing oozes sophisticated glamour quite like a belted coat. As a classic neutral, camel is the colour of choice for longevity but you can always play around with richer shades like this beautiful deep green coat from H&M or opt for a trend-led piece like this check version from & Other Stories.

Parkas & Puffas 

Let’s face it, winter weather is not our friend! Though we would love to always be able to bundle up in style in faux fur, chances are the weather won’t always permit that. Cue the parka and puffer jackets. Though they may not be the most glamorous of coats, when it comes to practicality they cannot be beaten and you can rest assured they will keep you warm and dry from rain, sleet and snow.

Faux Fur & Teddy Coats 

For the ultimate outerwear statement, a faux fur or teddy coat is a key buy this winter. But keep in mind that while these are the perfect choice to snuggle up in when it is freezing outside, any hint of rain will leave you looking like a wet dog and most likely destroy your favourite coat so keep an eye on the weather forecast.

Double Breasted 

Double breasted coats are a nod to the androgynous style that has been inching its way into womenswear over the past few years. The masculine vibe adds an element of cool to any look this winter, particularly when paired with a dark floral dress or pleated midi skirt as the trends suggest. With camel being our choice of colour for belted coats, we suggest opting for black or navy blue in this style.
