Girls winter coatsBy TheStudentGuide
We scour the shops to find the best picks for Christmas.
Winter is fast approaching, and you know what that means girls – totally legitimate excuse to invest in a nice new coat. We love winter, it’s the only time you can go mad on clothes (coats, boots, jumpers scarves, you know the deal) and completely justify it. Because otherwise you’ll freeze, right? In celebration, we bring to you our pick of the loveliest winter coats in the land. And remember, if loan says no, Christmas is right around the corner.
Boucle Tobacco Skirted Coat
This skirted coat in beautiful deep tobacco is a great all rounder. The neutral colour will go with most outfits and the gorgeous shape will make trousers, skirt or dress look super feminine. The skirted frill has a throwback feel and sets off the military detail. Wear with deep colours like wine and navy to really make the most of it.

Sitting just above the knee, it makes it an ideal layering piece over dresses and trousers and the high collar with engraved, decorative buttons is in true grandeur style. This coat has a buckle fastening waist belt with two concealed slit pockets and a box pleat at the reverse. Wear with golds to really set it off this winter.

Collarless Studded Sleeve Coat
This beautiful studded coat really captures this season’s look. Studs are everywhere at the moment – on jumpers, shirts and skirts, so this coat really does fit in. At £120, it is the most pricey purchase on the list, however right now students can enjoy a 20% discount at Warehouse, which makes it not such a guilty pleasure after all...wear with bold prints to reveal your rock edge.

This check coat from Primark is super cute and super warm. Fitting perfectly with almost all of your woolens, because of its colour it’s also extremely versatile when it comes to what colours you can wear it with.

F & F Military Coat
Another military style showcases just how popular the age old look is this winter. But this beautiful edition in wine gives it a modern edge. Patterned buttons and lapel detail make this coat a great bargain at just £35 and as it’s from Tesco, you can pick it up while you’re doing you food shopping!

Gold Croc Coat
Our favourite coat on the list, the Gold Croc Coat from Topshop is a glam must have. Complimenting perfectly the metallics which are oh so hot this season, it’ll make velvets, suedes and chiffons look a million dollars. Team with chunky heels and gold jewellery to set it off, we’ll be the first in the queue for this when it hits the shops the winter.
