It’s officially coat season, and we’re here to help you find a classic winter coat that will transcend the seasons. If you don’t already have at least one timeless winter coat, now is the time to find the perfect piece that checks all the boxes. The right winter coat can dress up any outfit – from a tailored shirt and trousers for the office to a casual sweatshirt and jeans for errands. With all the new-season styles currently hitting the high street, there’s never been a better time to update your wardrobe. Here’s our handy shopping guide featuring 26 classic winter coats you’ll want to wear all season. Discover the best duvet-like puffer coats, cool oversized coats, timeless wrap coats, and more.
A timeless wardrobe classic that you’ll return to every winter, the wrap coat offers freedom of movement while the waist belt neatly accentuates the silhouette. Whether made of wool, cashmere, or a luxurious blend, a wrap coat is an ideal winter option that will keep you warm and elevate your everyday outfits. The roomy shape is suitable for layering chunky knitwear, while the waist belt can be loosely fastened for a more relaxed look or tied for an hourglass silhouette.

Cosy Puffer Coats
Brave the elements and combat the winter season in style with a puffer coat that can offer you the utmost protection. Insulated with pillow-soft padding and crafted from lightweight materials, puffer coats are perfect for sub-zero temperatures. Make this coat your go-to companion for leisurely strolls outdoors; just throw on a comfy knit, a pair of jeans, and durable boots this winter for a functional and stylish look.
Cool Oversized Coats
A chic, oversized coat instantly refines an outfit. Structured detail and a long length make it a foundational piece for your winter wardrobe, as it retains its elegance for formal and casual looks. Consider double-breasted styles, which provide plenty of room for your chunky knitwear. While we secretly covet luxury ”it” pieces such as The Row’s “Callum” coat with its boxy cut and oversized proportions, you can easily shop the look for less from independent and high street brands. Here are a few of our personal favourites:

Classic Camel Coats
A camel coat will never go out of style. Pair it with anything from your favourite jeans to a dressy LBD, and you’re good to go. A neutral colour like this will uplift your autumn and winter outfits and add softness to dark layers. Furthermore, if you consider yourself a minimalist, this is a must-have for creating chic, tonal looks.
