(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.
Zara coats for women - our top sale picks
Overtaking the parka in popularity, puffer sales have boomed this year as we all scrambled for a coat that won’t leave us freezing in a pub garden come 6pm. Expect a myriad of colours and imaginings in the Zara coats sale - from bold brights to faux leather.
Wool is notorious for providing top-notch insulation, and a tailored coat will tip-toe the line between warmth and style. Wear now to smarten up your dog walk, and for your return to the office next year.
Whichever style of coat you choose, these cut-price Zara coats for women aren’t likely to stick around for long, so shop fast to avoid missing out.

She caught the magazine bug during a stint as Fashion Editor of her university newspaper alongside her English degree, and hasn’t looked back since. As for the fashion bug, that came as part and parcel of growing up in the 90s, but the less said about that the better!
Jess’ average day in the office is spent researching the latest fashion trends, chatting to industry tastemakers and scouring the internet to bring you this season’s must-buy pieces - as well as advice on how to wear them. Weekends are equally fashion-focused, and Jess has been known to visit no less than five Zara stores in a single day in search of the perfect occasion dress.
The only thing that comes close to a buzz of finally tracking down that much-coveted dress is the joy of discovering a new beauty wonder product or hero ingredient. A beauty obsessive, Jess has tried everything from cryotherapy to chemical peels (minus the Samantha in Sex and The City-worthy redness) and interviewed experts including Jo Malone and Trinny Woodall.
