5 classic coat styles to invest in this winter

Staying cosy never looked this good


We all know that the cooler weather brings a variety of fabulous cover-ups, so it’s no surprise that you’re guaranteed to see the latest coat styles in most stores.

Here are 5 coat styles that are taking over in winter 2017: 

1. The waterproof trench coat

This saves lives in winter! There is no question that you’ll be in need of a waterproof option when it’s raining buckets outside. Opt for a classic black, neutral or navy one that will go with anything and everything.

2. The down coat

Nothing on this planet could possibly be cosier! When the degrees feel like they’re hitting the negatives and you’re losing the feeling in your fingers and toes, the down coat comes to the rescue.

3. The belted coat

This style is great to show off your figure. It will pull – only as tightly as you want it to – at the waist and will give you a lovely shape.
