The cold weather is officially here. We’ve already talked about layering up to keep warm this winter, but what do you wear on the outside? Never fear, we’ve got the low down on everything from raincoats to keep you dry to puffer jackets and woollen coats that will keep you warm.
You can’t go wrong with neutral tones or a classic pattern like a check. If you only have room in your budget for one coat, then go for something classic that you’ll be able to pair with lots of outfits. That way you’ll be able to maximise your wear throughout the season and you’ll be able to wear it year after year.
Puffer jackets are next level warm and seem to be more popular this year than I’ve ever seen them before. There are lots of different styles out there, from full on jackets like these to sleeveless ones, so have a hunt around and find the right one for you.
For some of us it’s not just about staying warm in winter – it’s also about staying dry. Finding great quality weatherproof coats in plus sizes can be difficult and these tend to sell out quickly, but don’t worry – we’ve found some great options for you.
How will you be wearing your coat? Buttoned up, open to show off your outfit, or belted? The bonus of having a belted coat is that you can wear it open or closed, and the belt gives you the option of tying it in the back like a trench, or using it to help define your body shape.
