As we head into the depths of December and prepare for an even frostier New Year, being armed with a trusty winter coat is a prerequisite in the colder months.
Try as we might to resist it, winter is well and truly upon us.
If you’ve been putting off buying a new coat so far this season and have instead reverted to shivering in a leather jacket or chunky knit, it’s time to make the investment.
You’ve no doubt already snapped up your boots, bags, scarves and thick knits but the perfect winter coat is the final piece in the sartorial puzzle.
The great news? If you get it right, you’ll be wearing it all the way from now until April when the sun (hopefully) finally rears its head again.
It’s perfect timing, then, that Zara has just dropped an epic new coat collection just in time for the festive season, so whether you’re selfishly buying one for yourself (and why not?), or seeking the perfect gift for a lady in your life, the high street stalwart has you covered.
Whether you’re after a functional and stylish trench coat or weather-ready parkas for those Boxing Day walks, a smart blazer for New Year’s Eve or a chic kimono for being damn extra over the festive period, Zara just served every outerwear style you could need this season.
Here are the best bits from the new coat collection that we can guarantee will be the single best investment you make this year.
