I look forward to buying a new coat, for me its shape will define the new season's silhouette that influences the rest of my winter wardrobe purchases. Long and lean or flirty and fun? Classic camel or the latest colour trend. So many choices, so where to begin? I believe there are three main considerations to think about when making your choice.
I suggest looking at the clothes already in your wardrobe, make a note of the dominant shades and consider a colour of coat that will pull it all together.
Is there a trend you would like to try, for example faux fur? Why not try a coat with a removable fur collar? This way you can 'dip' into the trend whenever you like.
I love trying new lengths and shapes, but do consider your lifestyle needs. If you are frequently in the car you may not need a long coat, perhaps a jacket would be better. Whereas if you are a regular commuter a longer coat will keep you cosy on a frosty morning.
JD Williams have a superb choice for all shapes and sizes this season. It was a tough job but I managed to choose 10 of my favourites to share with you.
Dusty pink faux fur £90.00
Faux fur is always fun, plus it goes without saying that it is warm and cosy. This one features a pretty detail with its velvet ribbon that ties at the neck. The colour is a lovely dusky pink one to suit all complexions I think. Wear with a simple roll neck jumper and jeans or smart trousers and a pretty ruffled blouse.
Camel Crombie style £69.00
A camel coat is always a classic, this one is long and flattering with a great length. Throw this on top of anything. It will take you anywhere and you will always look smart. My preferred look is to wear this with dark denim jeans and block heeled boots topped off with a classic white shirt or blouse.
Faux Sheepskin Biker £79.00
Warm, stylish and new BF to my jeans. It's the leather biker's biggest rival.

Embellished Coat £60.00
Elegant grey wool with oriental blossom detailing, the perfect evening coat.
Wine belted with faux fur collar £85.00
The colour and versatility of this one caught my eye. The collar is removable so you get two styles for the price of one. Wear smart with skirts and ankle boots or casual with jeans and flat shoes. The belt accentuates your waist so it’s flattering on all figures
