Your Guide to Choosing a Winter Coat

There are so many women’s winter coats to choose from, so how do you know which is right for you? Look no further than our winter coat buying guide, with all the tips you need to find the perfect style to suit. From cosy. down-filled coats to tailored wool styles, here’s how to pick out the coat to help you stay warm while looking stylish, all season long.



1. Choose your colour palette

Shop the look:
Calacindy Jacket in Tigerseye, Archelo Hooded Coat in Pink

When browsing the latest women’s winter coats for the season, our tip is to start with colour. Whether you’re looking for classic black or a stand-out shade, choose a colour you know will work with the rest of the outfits in your wardrobe, to avoid clashing too much. If in doubt, a timeless camel cover-up will go with everything you already own (and look seriously chic).



2. Find your perfect length


Shop the look: Borg Hooded Coat in Petrol, Classic Belted Coat in Black 

Choosing the right coat length to suit your frame, height and style can be tricky. Maxi coats are great for staying warm and hiding your outfit underneath (no colour clashing here), but shorter styles can be cosy, casual, and sit perfectly over jeans. Our tip: when shopping for women’s winter coats, wear one of your go-to everyday outfits, so you can see which length works with your usual style. Sorted.



3. Choose your silhouette


Shop the look: Daeira Short Quilted Coat in Rust, Aristofane Cape in Red 

The only way to find your new coat style: try them all on. From a straight-cut trench coat to an oversized peacoat, there’s a huge selection of women’s winter coats to choose from. This season. we’re loving sleek cape styles for dressing up or, for casual winter walks, a quilted down-filled coat is like a duvet you can wear. Cosiness, guaranteed. 



4. Try a trending texture

Shop the look: Crono Padded Coat in Red, Reversible Faux Leather Coat in Camel

If you’re looking for women’s winter coats with a new-season spin, look for trending textures to refresh your look. Quilted styles are all over Instagram right now, alongside cosy shearling coats and fluffy faux fur jackets. These chic styles are super warm and on-trend, so it’s win-win for you and your wardrobe.



5. Nail the perfect fit


Shop the look: Military Coat in Khaki, Trench Coat in Tobacco

Our tip to find a winter coat that fits like a glove: go a little oversized. As the temps drop, you’ll want to wrap up warm with layers of knitwear underneath. So, you’ll need a little extra room to make sure your coat is still comfy to wear as the last layer in your outfit. To avoid going too big on the sizing, always check your coat fits well on the shoulders. Then, you’re good to go.
