With the temperature dropping fast, it's time to start thinking about your winter wears: specifically your coat. The good news is that a new piece of outerwear doesn't need to break the bank because there are so many amazing brands offering cheap winter coats that are ultra stylish these days.
Your winter coat is the style staple that will see you through the season, the piece of your wardrobe that people will see more than any other. You're likely to be wearing it daily so really you want to love it. But whether you want something more statement, or a timeless piece, shape is key when choosing your coat. Rounder middles and curvier hips always benefit from a long-line tailored one to streamline your shape, while busty figures need to cheat an hour-glass shape, so a belted coat is best. And petites? You need to opt for a shorter length that doesn't over-power your frame.
Whatever you're in the market for, be it bright-as-can-be hues, classic grey and blacks, cosy shearling to shiny PVC, we've found the best outwear on the highstreet.
The best cheap winter coats all under £80...
The Very Pink Faux Fur Coat, £80
This cosy faux fur coat shot to fashion fame after This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby wowed fans after wearing it live on the ITV show.
The stylish TV host posted a picture of herself in coat, accessorised with a pink, slim-fit jumper and dark, floral skirt on Instagram, and her social media followers flocked to the post to praise the coat and ask where they could get it.
One fan wrote, "Oh wow! That coat is stunning xx", while another said "Oh my days I need this coat in my life 😍😍 @hollywilloughby stunning as always xx"
And luckily for us, it's totally affordable and easy to buy. The coat is sold at Very UK, and is on sale for £80 - a reasonable price for a warm winter coat. But be quick, because this is one of the website's bestsellers - and after Holly wore it, it likely won't be around for much longer!
