The Best Autumn Coats On The High Street Now

Buying a winter coat is never an easy shop. Most of us have high expectations of our winter coat, requiring this staple item to tick many boxes. It needs to work for work, weekends, school run, nights out, walking the dog, date nights, the list is endless. Truth is, buying a new winter coat is an investment so it’s worth taking the time to find the right one but trust, that once you find it, it will last for years to come. Below are 3 top tips when buying a winter coat:

  1. Have a decent budget - if you have a decent amount of cash to spend you will have more options to choose from. Remember a winter coat is something you will wear EVERYDAY so the value is in price per wear as opposed to price per item. Also, you can afford to buy a better brand/quality so it will last.

  2. Before buying a new coat have a clear understanding what type of occasions you will need it for i.e. work, social, school run, business meetings. This will help you choose something that will work for you, but be realistic as one coat may not fit every occasion so buying 2 may have to be an option! start with a staple timeless piece then perhaps one that is ‘on trend’.

  3. Try different styles and only purchase one that works for your shape and proportions. Oversized coats are a big trend and many are cosy but do not suit everyone. Make sure the coat works in line with your body shape and not against it.

The coats we have chosen below are a guide to what’s in stores and trending RIGHT NOW but it is still important to choose one which suits YOU! Leave your comments/questions/dilemmas below, S&S x
