This coat is perfect for keeping warm in windy conditions, with the button-up, high-neck style protecting you from those wintry gusts. The faux fur trimmed hood is a given, perfect for keeping your head and ears warm and dry at all times. We also love the longline style and drawstring waistband, which work together to create a fitted, super sleek silhouette. The Meja winter coat comes in a variety of colours, but this striking ‘organic white’ shade creates an instant winter-chic look that will match any outfit. You can find yours right here.

We love the vibrant ‘I’m here’ shade of red and glamourous fur collar on the Denali field jacket, guaranteed to turn heads while serving every purpose a winter coat should serve. There’s also a waterproof hood hiding in that collar, for extra protection from the elements. In love? Us too. Get yours here.

Joules Florian Printed Padded Coat

If you struggle to find winter coats with all the warmth but less of the weight, then struggle no further. This pretty padded jacket from premium casualwear brand, Joules, strikes the perfect balance between warmth and weight, with a lightweight feel and slightly longer design than usual. The padded body is tailored for a neat silhouette, while the stand neck provides that extra level of protection from the cold; a much needed feature when the wind picks up.
