Now is the time to start shopping for your winter coat to avoid disappointment. Retailers are now stocking the shops with the new autumn ranges. If you buy early, you will have plenty of choice, but I know that some ladies like to wait for the sales in January. Here are my top tips for buying your winter coat.
Firstly, you need to decide what type of coat you are looking for. If you are always travelling in the car you may not need a full-length coat. If you are commuting and waiting around on platforms that may be the way to go. I love the trench coat as a compromise. It is very classic item that will be in your wardrobe for a very long time. This Trench coat I found in Marks & Spencer and it has storm wear. It retails at £79.00 and comes in Navy and Khaki. If you are looking at the higher end of the price bracket you can get warm linings you can add as the weather gets colder. Buy one with plenty of room so you can always add some jumpers underneath.
If you would prefer a wool coat I found this one also in Marks & Spencer This is 70% wool, a simple two pocket style at £119 and comes in six colours.

If you are always in the car and are looking for a light weight coat I found this one in Dorothy Perkins. A Leopard Print Notch Neck Coat which comes in at £55.00. A print like this will go with so many things in your wardrobe as it is a combination of black and brown. If this is not for you, it also comes in dark grey, pink and red.
Another key piece for your wardrobe for this time of year is the Coatigan, which a cross between a coat and a cardigan. I bought one last year and wore it a lot. Sometimes it is too cold to go without a coat but too warm with one so, this is an ideal choice. It also works well when you are shopping as I always to feel too hot wearing a heavy coat.
If you are wearing your jeans and want something warm, you can’t go wrong with a gilet and Marks & Spencer has a good range of those in many colours. I hope that has given you some inspiration to go out and look for your winter coat.
