No matter where you are in the world, you’re bound to feel the chill of winter somewhat.
(Unless you live somewhere like Florida – in which case, we’re incredibly jealous!)
That’s why it’s so important to bundle up during the colder months and wear as many layers as necessary. It’s all about retaining your body heat to prevent you from picking up any nasty illnesses.
A thick coat is a must, that’s for sure, but don’t just settle for any coat. Why not go for something snugly yet makes a statement?
Speaking of, here are 3 winter coats you just need to have in your wardrobe for Autumn/Winter 2017/18.
1. The Padded Puffer
Firstly, some might describe the puffer jacket as the creme de la creme of winter coats for AW17 – and those fashionistas would be right.
After all, this key piece is currently everywhere. It’s in your favourite independent shops, featured on major retailers’ websites and – heck – even worn by your neighbour Sue as she’s walking the family dog.
Comfortable and practical, yet seriously stylish, if you don’t currently own a puffer then you’re doing this whole fashion thing wrong.
Simply pair yours with skinny jeans, a slouchy long-sleeved top and stompy boots for a sassy wintry look that’s full of attitude.
2. The Neutral Wool Pea Coat
Neutrals is an undeniable winter coats trend for AW17.
From earthy brown and beige shades to classic grey and black hues, you honestly can’t have too much of this colour family in your wardrobe right now.
Use yours to dress down fun-printed or bright-toned pieces. Alternatively, team it with other neutrals for a sophisticated, minimalistic look.
3. The Teddy Bear Coat
Lastly, perhaps our favourite coat of the season, all hail the teddy bear.
Rule 101 when it comes to teddy bear coats: the fluffier, the better!
Merely choose a neutral hue like cream or black for a look that emulates timeless elegance. Alternatively, go for a colour that’s little more out there to add interest to an otherwise plain outfit.
Personally, we like to let ours stand out and do the talking.
Adding Winter Coats to Your Wardrobe
If you’re thinking that your coat collection needs a little sprucing up before this wintry season is over then one of these three options is definitely the way to go.
It’d certainly be an investment that would pay off. After all, it’s pretty much guaranteed that these beauties will be making a comeback for AW18.
