Now is the time to buy a good winter coat as high street retail stores begin switching collections from Autumn to Winter. Don’t put it off as by the end of Autumn many of the well-loved and most popular styles would have sold out and will inevitably not return to store. Witch Christmas well on its way, you may be looking for a fantastic cover-up or a military style parka with a stylish and quirky edge. However if you’re feeling a little more inspired by the catwalk, then faux-fur coats are one of the most popular trends of the season. So you do not need to worry about splashing the cash and some ethical anxiety over a real fur coat, when every shop on the high street will have a great faux fur alternative.
So buying a coat doesn’t need to be as difficult as buying a pair of jeans – you want comfort, style and a wearable design which will allow you to layer up underneath and still feel like a million dollars.
