Unless you're lucky enough to live somewhere with sunny winters, you're going to need a winter coat that can withstand cold temperatures, lashings of heavy rain and even the odd flurry! But it can be difficult to find women's coats that are both functional and fashionable.
But this year, the high street has seriously upped its game, in terms of price and quality. There's no need to spend a small fortune on your winter coat, thanks to some of the gorgeous styles landing now. We've rounded up the high street heroes that will get you through the winter months in style, without breaking the bank.
There are so many beautiful - and affordable - women's coats to choose from this winter, so what's the secret to picking the right one? Hour-glass figures should stick to single-breasted coats with a thick belt to tie it all together and that will flatter tapered waists, while pear-shaped ladies can draw attention upwards with large or embellished collars. Petite and shorter women should opt for coats that aren't too long and won't engulf your figure, and women with shorter legs can give the illusion of length by opting for a coat that ties above the waist.
This season, our fashion experts are here to guide you through a whole host of high street winter coats, in every colour, shape and style. So whether you want to dip your toe into the androgynous trend with a casual boyfriend shape, or keep it feminine with a pastel-hued princess coat, we have the look for you.
