(No) thanks to a mix of plummeting temperatures and Covid-related restrictions, the breakaway fashion hero of 2020 is undoubtedly the winter coat

Luckily, it’s a trend we won’t be regretting in years to come as, pandemic or no pandemic, snuggly parkas and smart peacoats are always worth investing in. Hence why our Boxing Day sale wish lists are brimming with Zara coats.

And the best part is, we don’t need to wait until the 26th to start flexing our credit cards. The kind folk at Zara have started their sale early. 

It’s trivial, we know, but the joy of bagging a bargain is likely to go a small way towards dulling the sting of being unexpectedly plonked into Tier 4. Keep calm, and carry on shopping is the mantra for the fashion-obsessed this winter, and a new coat seems like a sensible place to start.

The beauty of a gorgeous coat is that it works as something of a sartorial red herring, distracting passers-by from what you’re wearing underneath. Because let’s be honest, few of us have been spotted in anything other than a comfortingly cosy knit and leggings since March.
