In Chilly November, the hunt for the perfect coat to last us all the way through Winter is well under way. With memories of Halloween way behind us, Christmas is calling, with snow and ice already common place among Northern parts of the country. So, the perfect coat to survive the cold winter months is a necessity...
Here's my summary of not only practical, but also fashionable coats to last you through the cold winter months.
Living a stone's throw away from Topshop Oxford Circus certainly has its advantages. Being there the other day, I took photos of some of my favourites...
- The boyfriend/ waterfall coat
Perfect for: turning an every day outfit smart-casual, for dinner, movies, uni... basically my go-to coat (links in caption).
These are all gorgeous and I was torn between them for ages. Whilst the grey waterfall was the most cosy and warm, the salt and pepper one was the most interesting and stylish, but I eventually went for the camel one: a classic, that I could pair with everything. Everyone knows how "in" camel coats are this season, and the faux fur collar was a cute extra.
Here are some more of my favourites in this category....

2. The faux fur coat
The glamorous staple is decisively back for Winter 15/16. A perfect addition to an evening outfit, or to smarten up a day outfit, if you're bold enough. Here's some of my faves...
3. The Faux Shearling Coat
Cosy and warm, this is another AW 15/16 staple. Both the jacket and coat varieties are beautiful for winter.

4. And finally... capes.
The most stylish of all the coat varieties, they instantly smarten up any outfit. Pair with a long sleeve polo neck, skinny jeans, and heeled boots, for a "Parisian Chic" look.
A coat is always worth a hefty investment. But, with the Black Friday Sales coming up, look out for prices dropping...
