I want a new winter coat... but which one to choose?

I know we are due a mini-heatwave by the end of the week but I feel a bit short-changed. I am actually looking forward to getting out my winter clothes which I prefer and cover up all that summer weight that seems to have slipped onto my hips - and I just prefer to be wrapped up if I'm honest. What I will be needing is a winter coat as although I LOVE my faithful duffle I really do need something with a bit more style...7

Here are my favourites...

The short tweed Cambridge coat from Jaeger
How gorgeous is this classic car coat with it's oversized collar and sleek silhouette. This is an investment piece and I would feel like a character from Mad Men when I wore it... price tag? £450



Hobbs Bernice Coat in Melange Grey from John Lewis
Another classic this time from Hobbs that will go from one season to the next. Loving the wide lapels and wrap-style with belted-waist (make the most of your shape that's what I say!). And you can see, even from the picture, that this is a soft little number being in a mohair mix fabric. Damage? £369





I like checks - especially when they are muted, like this one. This has a black satin lining, black logo embellished buttoning and two front clip pockets - will definitely keep you warm and cosy when you're walking the moors... Price? an affordable £120



Red car coat in nylon/wool mix from River Island.
I quite fancy a flash of red to brighten up my, well let's face it, all too black winter wardrobe. And red is one of the season's signature colours on the A/W catwalks. This one is smart, simple and at a cool £80 is great value for money...






Classic tailored camel coat from Jigsaw.
Oh yum! Do I love this coat? Have always wanted a classic camel coat and have never had one... love the hidden buttons and the length is perfect... again a classic investment buy which if I look after it will last me a few seasons. Price? A sterling £229
