Oh how we love to talk about the British weather! And this New Year, rumour has it January’s icy temperatures and biting winds are guaranteed to make for a good conversation starter. According to reports – some arctic cyclones churning in the North Atlantic are set to sweep freezing air into Britain… Just FYI, all we’ve decided to take away from that is the fact we need a new coat.

While battening down the hatches is usually a preferred tactic, having been doing so on-and-off for 10 months now, we’ve decided to bundle up and brave the elements instead. 

So while you’re home whiling away the hours of those long dark wintery afternoons, turn your attention away from Netflix and on to the chic and cosy offering of coats currently available to buy, online. 

Winter coats sit at the very core of our cold-weather look, as well as providing the perfect finishing touch to an outfit, so it really is worth taking the time to find ‘The One’.

Given that we only tend to buy one (or two) a year, they need to be versatile enough to work in harmony with the bulk of our wardrobes, as well as being really warm (obvs), and adaptable to plenty of occasions – city strolls, socially distanced hook-ups etc. It’s like searching for the ultimate sartorial-partner to walk hand-in-hand with throughout the season.
