How to choose a winter coat

  1. Fabric is everything. If you're looking for something warm, woollen styles are your best bet. If you live in a warmer climate, or your coat is more for show, then choosing a polyester or duster coat is a better option. It is also important to keep in mind that nylons and polyesters pill more than natural fibres like wool, cotton or cashmere.
  2. 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 numbers.
  3. 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 better than adding another black piece of clothing to your wardrobe. But if you're big on colour already, black or camel is a good way to go.

Be aware that many of the "wool" coats you see are actually synthetic, or a blend of synthetic and wool. Wool coats last longer, are warmer and are less likely to pill, so it's worth investing in an actual woollen coat – it will last you longer.

If you see something listed as a "wool-blend", always check the percentages on the product listing or tag. You don't want to spend big bucks on something that is only 10% wool.
