As winter blows in with chilly winds and a little bit of biting sunshine, a cosy coat (or two) makes the ultimate wardrobe statement. Whether you dress it up or down, layer or accessorise it, we’ve got the ultimate cosy coats to keep you looking chic this season.
Sometimes, there’s nothing quite like slipping into a little piece of luxury and Marni’s oversized offering ticks all the right boxes. With dropped shoulders and side vents, this piece subverts traditional silhouettes whilst allowing endless options for customisation. Pull up the sleeves and collar and wear with a belt for show-stopping style that’s a great antidote to the usual sea of monochrome. £1790, Net-a-Porter
Effortlessly understated, this piece by Iro is the ultimate everyday coat. A sexy cocoon silhouette and above the knee cut allow you to show off your fantastic winter boots whilst the speckled grey complements almost any colour. Try layering above a bright party dress or work the pattern clash trend with a hot red tartan scarf to really make your look stand out. £555, Stylebop
Pastel colours are still going strong and this timeless piece by Goat channels effortless elegance. The simple front opening allows you to throw this beautiful powder colour over anything whilst the oversized pockets give it a hint of 21st century minimalism. Play around with contrast and wear it on your shoulders over a white shirt teamed with tough, frayed skinny jeans and biker boots—definitely an alternative take on modern femininity. £505, My Wardrobe
What’s a winter wardrobe without houndstooth? This stunning Saint Laurent number sits comfortably between classic beauty and avant-garde angularity whilst putting a new twist on a tried and tested pattern. The cape already does all the hard work for you, creating a strong upper silhouette that really makes an impact when balanced out with over-the-knee boots and a chic beret. Long gloves and plenty of attitude complete the look. £1770, My Theresa
Grey skies outside shouldn’t dictate your wardrobe, which is why this bright, structured piece from Alexander Wang’s A/W 14 collection for Balenciaga is a must-have. Its heavy feel creates a look of standout luxury, while the belt allows for the option of playing around its shape. It’s not hard to see why this coat was such a hit on the runway, so let it do the talking and pair it simply with black cigarette trousers and sky-high heels. £4750, Matchesfashion
