Furry Bright

Now this is an investment piece if we ever saw one. Bring the 70s fur trend smack bang up-to-date with acid bright colours.

The Suede One

Perhaps a little impractical in the rain, but you can’t get much more luxe than a suede wrap-tie coat. Channel your inner 70s diva and wear with knee high boots and a roll-neck jumper.

The Structured Cape

Part 1940s nurse, part mysterious magician, this cape totally works. This piece has more modern structure than previous slouchy cape trends, and who can resist a waist cinching belt?

The Belted Beauty

Goes with everything, keeps you warm, and has bags of style? Tell us what this miracle coat looks like?! Well this camel belted ‘dressing-gown’ style coat comes pretty darn close.

The Military Style

This style never goes out of favour. Classic, structured and perfect for wintery autumn walks. This multi-functional beauty will work over jeans and wellies during the day or over a sultry evening dress at night.

The Slouchy Coat-igan

Feeling guilty about wanting to wear your pyjamas outside in this rubbish weather? (Us too). Here’s the answer: a slubby, cosy cardigan-style coat – and it’s made from organic cotton, so you really don’t have to feel guilty!

    Love the yellow! How vibrant on a grey day! You couldn't help but attract attention when everyone else is dressed in black.

    Nothing beats variations on a simple pea coat for me. Pretty much all of my favorite winter coats have fallen into this category... and I have a bit of a collection, too! Lots of beautiful finds here within this post -- so many pieces I'd *love* to add to my own collection. I think the 2nd and 7th options might be my favorites, though!

    nice selection! But I had already 2 times a big problem in finding some stylish winter maternity coat. I was hoping to find smth cute and warm here preferably in some vivid colour but no luck. If I will be pregnant again I have to sew it by myself for sure. And for those designers who are searching for their own niche this can be a good field as not all women get just chubby during pregnancy. I am pretty slender and I am still the same size but my tummy is pretty big. So if I buy a coat of a bigger size it will look ridiculous on me...
