Ahh winter. Depending on where you are, it can be cold, windy, or wet… and if you live where I do it can be all three in one day! I’ve had lots of people asking me about coats for winter (especially waterproof ones!), so I’ve done a bit of hunting and found options for all kinds of weather. Grab a cup of tea and take a look.
Coats for cold weather
If winter is cold where you live, then you’ll know that a warm coat is essential part of your wardrobe. My top tip is to get one that is roomy enough to layer things underneath if you need to. Personally I prefer ones that I can belt at the waist, but there are lots of different styles available so find one you love! I like these coats for wearing in the evening to events or to and from work because they’re stylish but functional.
Hell Bunny Vivien Coat, $199.00 | Hell Bunny Rock Noir Coat, $239.00 | Missguided Faux Wool Coat, AUD $90.95 | Wild Child Swing Coat, $299.99 | Hell Bunny Isadora Coat, $359.00 | Lost Ink Plus Skirted Coat, AUD $199.95 | Sara Pea Coat, $149.99 | Together Woman Faux Fur Trim Coat, $239.99 | Sara Animal Coat, $149.99 | River Island Plus Leopard Print Coat, AUD $159.00 | City Chic Wonderland Coat, $199.95 | Millers Melton Coat, AUD $50.00 | Crossroads Fleece Pea Coat, AUD $49.95 | City Chic Make Me Blush Coat, $199.95 | Millers Melton Coat, AUD $60.00
I’d wear these coats on days that are windy or a little chilly (but not too cold). A mac or a trench is great to wear to and from the office or brunch, but you can basically pair them with anything – especially if you choose one in a neutral colour. Parkas and quilted coats are more casual – great for day to day or weekend outings (or if you’re a mama going to watch your kids play Saturday sports).

Coats for wet weather
Winter where I live can get pretty wet (it’s rained almost every day this week), so a coat that can help me survive the wet weather is a must have. I’ve included some options that are shower resistant and some that are waterproof, so make sure you check the descriptions on the links if waterproof is what you’re after!

I think I’ve managed to cover a pretty good range of budgets, styles, sizes and colours (some of these come in different colour options too), so hopefully I’ve managed to find something that you like! Let me know which one is your fave.
