It’s getting to that time of year when you can’t leave the house without a coat. Every year, I look forwards to this to start off with, the thought of getting all cosied up with a chic coat and a snuggly scarf, hat and glove set, but this soon gets tedious and dull. Therefore, to postpone those bad weather blues for as long as possible, it is essential that you invest in a coat to get excited about!! There seem to be some interesting coat trends going round at the moment, so there’s plenty of choice… 😀

The Trend: Tartan

1. 2. 3.  4.

1. Miss Selfridge £75    2. Asos £50    3. Boohoo £55 (also available in red)     4. (As before) John Lewis £79

Tartan is a big trend at the moment, and coats aren’t missing out. My favourite has to be the moss coloured John Lewis one, as the big ‘cocoon’ shape is also very in and I just love the colours and little fur collar and OHHH it’s just soo nice!! :O! I’ve even featured it twice in this post to show my love for it! The black and white Boohoo one is also really cool though, I love the biker essence of it what with the leather details and zips.

The Trend: Fur

1.  2.  3.  Waxed Parka Jacket

1. River Island £100    2. Asos £160    3. Matalan £35

Whether you’re after something trendy yet casual for a weekend, smart yet unique to dress up your workwear, or simply something practical but with a touch of class, there’s a fur coat for you!! How snuggly does this River Island one look?! Not to mention, how there is more than just the one texture this year: the classic long fur like that of the black Asos coat, or the ‘teddy texture’ of the River Island one. This trend still looking too scary for you? Then why not just opt for a touch of the trend with a fur collared coat – or a separate fur scarf for your own coat? There’s no escaping this trend, my guess is that it will be everywhere this season!

The Trend: Biker

1. Womens Biker Coat 2.

3.Salt and Pepper Biker Coat

1. GetTheLabel.com £39.99     2. Topshop £85    3. Oasis £100

In my books, anything with that edgy asymmetric zip screams biker style, so you don’t have to go all out with it if you don’t want to, just look for a classic coat with that detail. However, if you do want to go all out, I love the first one what with the the gold zips and leather sleeves, yet the long line of it makes it a bit more sophisticated and interesting than the classic leather jacket – which in my opinion is becoming way too mainstream! 😉

So there you have it, my pick of the top coat trends this season! Which are your favourites?
