We all need an investment coat: you know the ones, the type of coat which can make an appearance every year and stay looking great through changing trends. An investment coat should be classic and neutral so you can match it with your on-trend outfit pieces every year. There a variety of these coats on the high street and these are our top three:
This Linea green belted trench coat will always be in style and complement any outfit. To keep it on-trend this season team it with some metallic boots and leather gloves. From House of Fraser, £199. We love this tan coat with over-the-top faux-fur trimmings. It will stand out in any crowd but is subtle enough to bring out every year. We think this coat looks a lot more expensive than its price tag. From Miss Selfridge, £89. Keep the cost down with this absolute bargain form George at Asda. The contrasting panels add dimension to the simple fit. £35.
The on-trend coat is the one you buy and will probably forget about the year after. This winter sees several trends, including metallic colours, sequins, leather and animal print. Don’t overspend on these coats, after all they will only be in your wardrobe for six months:
Love it or hate it, animal print is back for winter 16/17. Not only does this coat showcase a beautiful leopard inspired print, it has the addition of the black faux-fur trim which adds a touch of class. From George at Asda, £30.
The last time we saw the army print on trend the Spice Girls were topping the charts. Lots of 90s trends are coming back into fashion; first the choker then the space buns and now the army print. Add it in the form of this jacket from Matalan, £35. The faux-sheep fur jacket is another great look of the season and looks fab over a pair of jeans and a cute tee. Our favourite high street pick comes from Matalan at £40.
