WRAP STARS; WE CHECK OUT 30 COOLEST WINTER COATS ON HIGH STREET.. AND ALL FOR A HEART-WARMING PS150 OR LESS.
Byline: Anna Burnside
Buying a winter coat is the fashion equivalent of double glazing -it needs rreesearch, cash and is only really noticed when it y y when it goes wrong.
But this year our team have done the hard yards and found 30 of the very best the High Street has to offer before the weather drops by 10 degrees. And the best bit? ey are all under PS150.
So whether you are looking for a school waterproof, a smart work mac or something more cosy, we have it covered From trench to trendy twenchj The trench coat is a style classic, regularly namechecked as a must-have item in any capsule wardrobe.
But the original mac is not for everyone. Its buttoned up and belted shape does no favours for those who are not tall and willowy. And the default shade, beige, can make the wearer look like a long drink of milky tea.
So the fashion industry has come up with the "twench". It's a trench coat with a twist, adding colour, texture or another detail to the design.
Some twenches just have subtle tweaks such as contrasting cuffs or collar. Others go full-out for pattern, with jazzy plaids and checks or floral prints. Different fabrics are another option, with PVC being the most on-trend option.
