It’s officially coat season!
Now that it’s officially coat season, if you haven’t got yourself at least one cosy coat this season, then now is your chance to find the perfect one for you. The ideal coat needs to tick several boxes – it should be warm, practical, versatile, stylish yet also timeless. Hmm, sounds a bit like finding the Holy Grail?
Not to worry, we’ve done all the research for you and found five of the best coats to choose from.
The Button Front Coat
This is an essential for every wardrobe. It’s timeless cut makes it a versatile option that will work perfectly with a variety of outfit choices and occasions. Opt for stylish colour options for winter such as grey or navy and you’ll find that this coat will become your daily go-to. A heavy-duty fabric will keep you warm and toasty on those chilly days and evenings out, while also standing the test of time without looking dated or tired. The sophistication of clean, structured lines means this coat is perfect for daily wear to and from the office over trousers and shirts, but also with more formal attire for a night out with a dress and winter boots. Depending on how you style it, it’s also a simple weekend option when layered with jeans, a casual knit and trainers.
The Boucle Coat
Here’s a feminine option for winter to give your outfits a softer edge. The soft, plushness of boucle fabric with it’s polyester-wool blend is divine and will have you looking and feeling snug. Boucle has a textured look and feel, to inject a bit of interest into your outfit. The Emerge Boucle Coat comes in a gorgeous blush colour, which is a welcome change from the darker tones we are inclined to choose over the winter months. It’s lined for warmth, comfort and longevity, and features lightly padded shoulders for added shape. The V-neck style works perfectly for layering with a roll-neck knit or oversized scarf. Done up, it gives a sophisticated look that works well over a dress and boots, or leave it unbuttoned for a boxy, over-sized style that effortlessly hangs from your frame.
The Military Coat
I recently wrote about this season’s military trend and how fashionistas are rocking it this winter. It’s safe to say that a military style coat is a sure-bet this winter to keep warm, but it will also be an investment piece that won’t go out of style anytime soon. The Emerge Military Coat comes in classic black, so provides versatile style that will work for a range of occasions. The heavy-duty fabric boasts durability and longevity, not to mention warmth, smooth lines and a sleek finish.

Chunky knit coat
The cosy wool blend yarn of a chunky knit coat will leave you snug and warm with a fashionable edge that will see you standing out from the crowd. The Heine Chunky Knit Coat is a sleek and stylish option. A round neck, long sleeves and zip front fastening give this coat a fashion-forward edge, that works perfectly with skinny jeans and ankle boots, or over a dress and leggings with sleek heeled winter boots.
A gorgeous coat is a winter essential, but as an investment piece you want to make the right decision to fit in with your style and the rest of your wardrobe.
