A key staple that everyone should have in their wardrobe this season - for both practicality and style - is a winter coat. Even though the weather at this time of year can be extremely harsh, the sign of a good winter coat is when you don’t dread wrapping yourself up and heading off into the elements. So to help you find the perfect winter coat for less this season - either as a treat for yourself or a Christmas gift for someone else - have a look at our selection of affordable winter coats*.
Pretty in pink
Coats that feature colour in their design can sometimes be tricky to wear, but wearing a coat that is of a more neutral tone can be a great way to add a subtle touch of colour to your wardrobe. A big colour trend for winter coats this season is blush pink, so to help you wear this trend for less, have a look at the following:
•As seasonal trends tend to come and go, there’s no need to spend too much money on them. For an affordable pink coat, head down to Primark where you can find this oversized wool coat for £25.
•If you’re looking for more of a lightweight coat that can take you from day to night, why not try this knitted pink coat from Matalan? At only £28, it’s quite the bargain!
•This candy floss pink coat from F&F at Tesco will be a welcome addition to anyone’s winter wardrobe. The coat has a real feminine feel to it and would look great paired with a big, chunky scarf. At only £40, it’s not a bad price and because it’s a classic you should get plenty of wear out of it over the years.
The wrap coat is one of the many ‘IT’ coats of the season, with the 70’s inspired design creating an effortlessly chic and sophisticated look. For a selection of the most affordable wrap coats, check these out:
•This white wrap coat from H&M is the perfect coat to layer over an outfit due to its baggy, oversized design. At only £34.99, it’s quite the bargain as well!
•Alternatively, why not think outside the box and make up your own rules for this trend? This navy mac from F&F at Tesco, incorporates both the classic mac style with the wrap trend and at only £28, will give you a timeless look every time you wear it.
•If you want a wrap coat with a little more edge, why not try this unconventional wrap coat from H&M? The coat is the perfect hybrid of a biker jacket and a wrap coat and looks great with its silver zip detailing. Priced at £39.99, it’s hard to believe that for this price you get two styles for the price of one.
Faux-fur is synonymous with winter fashion; in fact it’s almost impossible to think of a winter in the last couple of years when there hasn’t been a big trend for faux-fur. Whether it’s featured on the trim or used all over the coat, faux-fur can be seen everywhere at the moment.
To find a faux-fur coat that won’t blow your budget, have a look at a few of the following:
•Camel is the colour of the season, so when you match it up with a faux-fur collar you are pretty much on to a winner. This faux-fur collar coat from Primark is very chic and, at only £25, is a great price too!
•If you’re more daring in how you dress, this faux-fur maxi coat from Primark is sure to be right up your street. The long faux fur coat oozes luxury, making it pretty hard to believe that it’s only £35.
•Incorporating faux-fur into your wardrobe can be as subtle as finding a coat with fake fur trim around the hood. In the wintertime, you can’t really go wrong with a quilted coat, and this padded jacket from H&M is a great find at only £29.99.
Alternatively, as all of these winter coat trends have made the fashion rounds in the past, why not head down to your local charity shop to see if you can find any coats that are similar to the ones seen here? You could be pleasantly surprised at what you find!
