Surely one of the best things about winter is shopping for a new coat! Yay!

We’ve decided to take some of the hard work out of your decision process by tracking down some of the best styles that winter has to offer… and just between us, I think we’ve done a pretty stellar job! Here’s what we found…

1.     The Trench Coat

Ah the classic trench, how can you go wrong?  This style is awesome because it can be worn from the beginning of autumn right through until the end of spring.  Just add or lose some layers!
Feeling a bit trendy?  We love the look of a trench paired with a double denim duo or high waisted jeans and heels. 

2.     Oversized

Add a little drama by opting for an oversized fit.  Think floor length hems or broad shoulders.  It’s the easiest way to take a simple winter outfit from boring to bold in a matter of seconds!  Pair this style with some simple, classic pieces so you don’t over do it.  Try skinny jeans and a simple tee.

3.     The Cocoon Coat

This one’s my fave because it’s so unique and so flattering.  It hasn’t been around for ages but boy is it becoming popular fast!  We love this one matched with some cut off jeans and a pair of heeled boots.  If you’re feeling brave, opt for a pop of colour for the ultimate statement piece.

4.     The Shearling Coat

The warmest of all winter coats, the shearling will always be a favourite.  The classic camel colour will go with just about any outfit and oozes 70s chic, so it’s always a great option.  However, blues and pinks are becoming more popular too!  Try pairing this style with a pair of over-the-knee boots for a seriously stylish look.

5.     The Military Coat

Where the tailored uniform meets city-chic, you’ll find the military coat.  So powerful yet so feminine at the same time.  It’s the perfect combination!  This style looks best in navy, black or khaki and teamed up with your favourite pair of leathers, rolled up jeans and a bright lip.
