The best women’s winter coats under £60
While most of the nation’s focus may be on a small fluffy penguin and a little boy, ours is well and truly on women’s winter coats.
It happens this time every year – suddenly we fall totally out of love with last year’s coat and it’s all down to this little lot… the best women’s winter coats under £60 (the first of which comes courtesy of Bonmarché, who tempted you all in our recent competition).
1. Textured Panel Block Coat – £55 at Bonmarché
This monochrome tweed-look coat shows off a classy shawl collar, black panel at the hem, and slant pockets on the front. In the world of women’s winter coats, it’s the sort of piece that works on all ages, so just watch out that your daughter doesn’t nab it. £55 and well worth it.
2. Banned Leopard Fur Short Jacket – £29.99 at Blue Banana
Faux fur is having (another) fashion moment, and we can’t think of anything, erm, ‘snugglier’ to wrap up in on a cold winter’s day than this cute fluffy number. It comes courtesy of Blue Banana, features toggle fastenings, front pockets, and – wait for it – a hood. But – and this is where we get a teensy bit hysterical – the hood has ears on it. Ears! Probably best not to wear this to work (unless your boss is seriously cool). £29.99 – it’d be rude not to!
3. Per Una Wool Blend Pea Coat – £55 at M&S
A wool coat? From M&S? Under £60? Yep, it’s a pretty impressive deal. Featuring a double breasted front, slant zipped pockets, and a cute collar, it’s a smart offering from those stalwarts of the British high street. We love the gold tone detail on the zips and buttons, which peps things up a bit and gives it a slightly military feel. Team with a 1960s-style pinafore and mary janes, or stick to your staple jeans. Either way, it’s a steal at £55.
4. Only Faux Fur Hooded Parka with Contrast Lining – £45 at ASOS
If comfort and warmth are your number one priorities and you don’t mind mildly resembling one of the Gallagher brothers, then happy days, this is the coat for you. Yes the parka’s been around for a while now, but with its flashes of yellow on the zip and hood, fluffy fur, and drawstring at the waist to help with that silhouette, we’re all over this one. Plus it’s £45, which makes us even happier.
