A winter coat should last for a good few years if you treat it right. My last coat was by Jasper Conran; it was short, black, belted and bulky. It served me well for over six years but after sewing on the buttons for about the twentieth time, I decided to retire the coat and buy a new one.
After a long search (10days to be exact) here are some of the top winter coats and jackets for the season. They are stylish, go with anything and they are just the right length for both dresses and denim.
J by Jasper Conran – £159, Debenhams
Per Una Speziale Coat – £229, M&S
Check Parka – £36, George Asada
Animal print coat – £65, Next
Biker Coat with Leather Trim – £85, Marisota
Emerald Green Padded Coat – £59, La Redoute
F&F Limited Edition Ombre Fur Coat – £40
Which one will I go for? I’m not sure yet but I very much like the flair and style of the J by Jasper Conran and Per Una Speziale winter coats. They both have length, will be great for layering plus they have an Olivia Pope type quality to it.
