As winter approaches the most exciting thing to do is getting a brand-new cosy coat, which fits into the must-have trends of the season. There is only one word to describe the autumn/winter fashion this year, and that is hello, faux fur!

These are the top five winter coats every girl needs in her wardrobe:

1.Longline Borg Coat – Topshop

Even though it’s on the pricier side, this coat is definitely a must-have investment this season. Borg, is one of the new trends of 2017, and while being soft and warm it’s unquestionably fitting for British winter. You can pair it with checked trousers to be on trend, the forest green shade of the coat giving your look a little edge.

2.Cropped Puffer Jacket – New Look

The 90s puffer jacket has made a huge comeback this season – and not only can they be bought in red, metallic ones are very popular as well. You can pair the it-jacket with some ankle boots and black skinny jeans for a trendy look.

3.Imitation Suede Biker Jacket – H&M

Biker jackets are everywhere this season – and from Topshop to Boohoo, it’s a very trendy piece of outerwear to own. The black fur and buckles will give an edgy look to your winter outfit. Pair with distressed jeans and ankle boots for a laid-back style.

4.White Borg Coat – Primark

Another must-have Borg coat this winter is from Primark. For a more affordable alternative to the trend, this oversized coat is a staple piece everyone needs, and for only £25 it’s more like a bargain than an investment.

5.Polar Bear Faux Fur Coat – Topshop

Cream faux fur is on point this winter, and this luxurious style will keep you warm and cosy while being undeniably on trend. Even though it’s a big investment, this coat will never go out of style. For a modern and chic look, pair the coat with a graphic t-shirt combined with tailored trousers.
