A winter coat is an essential in this country. But where do you start, and what style of winter coat do you like? Fur? Princess style? Military? fur-trimmed? Cocoon? Bubble? Boyfriend? There really is a winter coat for everyone! But it can be tricky to find the style, or colour, that suits you, is comfortable and keeps you warm from thje winter chills.
Make a bold statement on a dreich winter day with a bright coloured winter coat. Pinks, oranges, purples and blues – whatever colour you choose, you are sure to brighten up your own day, if not everyone else’s when they see you in it!
Grey seems to be a popular choice for winter coats. Plain grey, grey patterned, grey and blue, just grey. Just don’t wear too much grey with it, or you will disappear into the winter landscape. Watch the cut of your coat – double breasted styles are more flattering if you are on the larger side – a single breasted coat can appear shapeless.

Make sure your coat fits properly – if it’s fitted, make sure it is. If it’s a boyfriend style -meant to be worn loose, make sure it isn’t too loose or too tight.
