Style edit: Ultra-cool winter coats

Up your style game this season with a classic winter coat.

As the weather gets cooler it's time to layer up. And what's better for layering than a warm, woolen, winter coat. When it's freezing outside but warm inside, a winter coat that you can peel off with ease is an absolute essential.

Not only are coats necessary for the frosty weather, but winter coats are a key element of winter style. If you get the right style and shape to suit you, a winter coat can very effortlessly take your fashion to the next level.

So to help you in your search for the perfect one, we've found a stack of coats for every taste and price range. From dusters, pea-coats, biker and double-breasted, here are our favourite winter coats for this season!

Things to remember when choosing a coat

Fabric is everything: If you really need warmth, then you'll need to choose wool. Polyester will not keep the cold out. But if you're in a warmer part of the country and your coat is more for show, then choosing a polyester or duster coat would be a better option. Also, if you pick something very fluffy, the fabric will be more prone to pilling. Make sure you choose a fabric without many loose or fluffy fibres on the surface. It is also important to keep in mind that nylons and polyesters pill more than fibres like wool.

Invest in something timeless: If you're planning on investing big money in a coat, pick a timeless style. While biker-style jackets and printed coats might be hot right now, they may not be next year. You don't want to spend big money on something you can only wear for one season. Stick to classic shapes and styles like wraps or double-breasted.

What does the rest of your wardrobe look like?: Many people think that buying a coloured coat is impractical, but this is not necessarily the case. Take a look at your winter clothes and look at the existing colours you have in your closet. If you find that your current collection of winter pieces are primarily black and grey then a coloured coat is probably a better option than adding another black piece of clothing to your wardrobe. But if you're big on colour already, black or camel is probably the way to go.

Editor's Tip: I love the coats at Forever New. They're typically less than $250 and they're all made from wool - something which is rare if you're shopping on the high street. I go back to there every year for a new coat, even though my old ones still have plenty of wear left in them. They're just such good value for how long they last, how good they look and how warm they are.
