20 of the best winter coats

From heritage fabrics to deconstructed designs and touch-me textures, these new trophy coats will have you longing for a cold snap

Featuring: Sies Marjan, Gabriela Hearst, Derek Lam and Chloé FW18

Plummeting temperatures and inclement weather are no excuse for letting your sartorial standards slip. This season, designers across the board have upped their outerwear game, presenting standout pieces that strike the perfect balance between timely and timeless.

Looking to imbue your closet with a little old-world glamour? Try heritage fabrics, which are back in a big way for FW18; in the deft hands of designers like Gabriela Hearst and Derek Lam, they now feel like a totally fresh proposition. Purists, meanwhile, are sure to be seduced by the sleek simplicity of The Row’s fluid, longline coat – cast in a perennially chic olive hue, it’s a bona fide investment piece. When it comes to cold-weather dressing, shearling is always a winner; we’d be more than happy to spend this winter cocooned in Sies Marjan’s russet design or Chloé’s off-white coat. And if you want to up the ante after dark, look no further than Oscar de la Renta’s bold color and Loewe’s statement prints; these elegant pieces are the perfect accompaniment for silk slip dresses, velvet separates and ’70s-inspired suiting.
