It’s that time of the year when the weather starts to suddenly get colder and you can no longer brave the outdoors without a coat. Although I hate the cold, I love this time of year because I am crazy about coats. There are so many beautiful designs out there at the moment that I love. So without further ado, here are the AW16 coat designs that I am OBSESSING over. As well as a few tips for selecting the perfect jacket for your body shape.


Phase Eight Donnalyn Wrap Neck Coat, £149 (was £199)





This wool blend coat is wonderfully classic and elegant. It’s the type of coat you could imagine Kate Middleton wearing because it’s so beautifully timeless. Although a simple design, I just love how smart and stylish this coat looks, making it perfect for teaming with almost any outfit. This style is perfect if you’ve got a narrow frame because of its smart, tailored fit. The waist tie fastening of this coat creates the illusion of curves where there aren’t any, giving your body more shape.


New Look Black Faux Fur Trim Belted Biker Jacket, £54.99




This casual jacket is perfect for adding to your wardrobe and teaming with skinnies and a woollen jumper or popping on over a pinafore dress and a pair of tights. The short length of this coat design, along with its belted waist, makes it perfect for wearing if you’ve got a curvy frame. The belted waist pulls the coat in, showing off your slim waistline. If you’re on a budget this winter, this could be the perfect design for you.


H&M Faux Fur Jacket, £49.99




This short faux fur jacket is beautifully stylish and elegant, thanks to its soft pink fur. Winter is all about keeping warm and cosy, making this jacket a wardrobe staple. The soft pink of the design makes it ideal for adding a pop of colour to any look. The short style of this coat means that it should look good on any body shape and size, and also that it will work well with a range of outfits, from dresses to jeans.


Ted Baker Giova Classic Coat Cream, £223.99 (was £279.99)




This knee-length coat with a skirt-style bottom is wonderfully classic and elegant. The white design combined with the print gives it a unique look and feel, and creates a sense of timeless style. For adding a pop of colour to a smart outfit, this coat is ideal. Because of its tailored design, this coat is ideal for fuller figures. The combination of a fitted top and a loose bottom accentuates your figure without clinging. To show off your small middle, this design is perfect. It’s pretty and floral and perfect for spicing up any look.


I love each and every one of these coats, they’re gorgeous.
