Winter coats are the staple in any wardrobe, and this season we've been overwhelmed with choice: Marie Claire edits the best winter coats.

The silver lining to the clouds in the sky is the promise of snuggling up in the best winter coats. With everything from millennial to the best faux fur coats leading the trends this season, we can’t wait to stock up now that the weather begins to get ever chillier.

With the weather as unpredictable as ever, no doubt  be needed right up until next April, the winter coat is one of the hardest working pieces in your wardrobe. Which is why it’s not a decision you’ll want to make lightly, especially if you want to invest in a piece that’s a bit more spenny.

Fortunately, there’s something out there to suit every style this winter. Puffas, parkas, trenches, right through to sharply tailored numbers, as well as no-fuss longline woolly confections – all of which make the perfect winter counterpart to your spring wardrobe’s lightweight duster coat.

So what’’s in store (literally)? And what do you need to know about this season’’s best winter coats? Well, there’’s something for everyone. Team Marie Claire has trawled both the in-store rails and online outlets to hand pick you the best cover-ups for all tastes and budgets. From the high street heroes that’ll have you doing a double-take on the price tag, to investment winter coats you’ll be cherishing for years, it’s all here.

The number one new season style to consider is actually not that new – the classic trench coat is AW17’s go-to buy. So whether you like Zara’s high street hero, or Burberry’s slightly pricier version, there’s a trench coat out there to suit you and your budget. For those of you into shearling, Weekday and Topshop have you sorted – here’s hoping it finds its way into the Topshop Black Friday sales.

As ever, pair your newfound coat with new season ankle boots or classic white trainers (if you dare, what with the weather).

This season’’s line-up is brilliantly diverse, so this winter’s coat edit comes with a caveat: you may find yourself wishing for extreme cold just so you can pile them on all at once.
