Winter coats are a wardrobe essential when the weather cools down, and what better time to get one than now, is the heating on yet?

See my gallery of the best winter coats to buy now and why they keep you on trend this winter season.

1. Pink is sticking around - Whistles Ira textured coat £325

Oversized pink coats make us feel a bit like a heroine in a Sixties kitchen sink drama. This one is a thick wool blend and has that fluffy boucle effect which always looks so good with a bouffant, kitten heels and swingy nana handbag.

2. Check this out - Hobbs Raven Coat £289

This check duster coat gives a slightly preppy, slightly tomboy vibe and I love the boyfriend shape. Turn up the collar and off set with jeans and a plain knit.

3. Going Glam - Unreal Fur £ 185 - The Dressing Room

Nothing says American Hustle chic meets a/w 2014 like groovy faux fur. Sure, it’s fairly useless in the rain – but whenever you wear it you will look utterly fabulous. Sometimes, that’s all that counts.

4. Pale and Interesting - French Connection £195

This colour will go nicely with crisp autumn skies as well as the greys that abound in the shops just now. We do love the way a cocoon coat instantly fashions up an outfit, even if it’s only jeans, a jumper and brogues.

5.  The 90s DB - Topshop £95

The 90s double breasted coat is back on the scene again this season. Be sure you belt up so you aren't swimming in excess fabric. Fashion continues its snuggly love-in with fluffy, furry and fuzzy and brings this style bang up to date.
