What better feeling is there than wrapping yourself up against the elements to go outside and brace whatever the weather has to throw at us? Coat season truly is one of the best.
To give yourself that ultra cosy feeling, invest in a belted coat, one you can really wrap around yourself and feel snug as a bug in. Also sometimes referred to as dressing gown coats, a classic belted coat in a gorgeously heavy fabric like wool will do your wardrobe no wrong.
And with so many styles on the high street, we’re spoilt for choice. For a go-to coat that you’ll wear for years and years to come, you can’t go too far wrong with classic black – it’s chic, elegant, flattering on everyone and will never clash with your outfit.
If you want classic with a dash more interest, go for a dark check or camel tone. Looking to go that step further? Mix things up with a pop of colour that will make a bright statement, or play with textures such as faux leather, which looks super classy (and expensive), or a fluffy teddy bear style. For extra warmth (and style points), there are some great belted padded coats on the high street, too – great for those brutally cold winter days.
We’ve found 12 of the best belted coats on the high street right now, starting from just £39. Even better, they’re all under £200 and span all price points, so there’s something for everyone. Snug times are a’coming.
