The Only 3 Winter Coats You Will Ever Need in Your Wardrobe

It's undeniable, the temperatures have dropped and the so far warm winter we were having is currently waving us goodbye and nearing its end. With dropping temperatures it's time to ditch the capes, blanket scarves and trench coats we were getting away with until now and opt instead for something a little warmer, ready for the snow that is on the way.

Every year, when winter hits I set out to buy me a new coat. Despite already having 8 gorgeous coats waiting to be worn, I of course have my favourites and always end up wearing the same ones. 5 or 6 of these just don't get as much wear as I would like so I found myself recently asking one simple question, did I really need all of these? Take a look at men's small coat collections for example, how does my fiancé, dad and little brother get away with owning just one coat that works perfectly well for any event, any outfit combination AND lasts several years?

With this in mind, I set to clear out my wardrobe and get rid of anything that I haven't worn in a while and things I no longer needed. Whilst doing so, I tasked myself to come up with the perfect winter coat wardrobe. I told myself I could only choose 3 different styles, all of which would keep me warm for the winters ahead and of course, free up much needed space in my wardrobe. Meet the only 3 coats that I believe you will need for ANY winter.

L to R: Khaki Parka, Woollen Coat, Faux Fur.
The Khaki Parka is a classic weekend piece, perfect for fun and play. It works just as well with an all black outfit such as a dress, tights and ankle boots too. A padded parka provides you with the comfort and warmth you need on those chilliest days, besides when is khaki not on trend?

The Wollen Coat is versatile, easy to wear and will work for most occasions whilst keeping you cosy and stylish. Wear it for work for a chic finish or for a night out with the girls. This is the key every day coat so invest in something that will last and remember, neutrals shades such as camel, grey and even black are your best friends as they will go with literally anything.

The Faux Fur coat keeps you warm and on top of your fashion game given it is one of the hottest season's trends. I personally wear mine at night for a more chic look paired with over-the-knee boots or leather pants. But browsing through Pinterest (where else), I've seen it being worn with jeans and trainers for a fun weekend get up and let me tell you, it looks just as good!

Keeping your wardrobe minimalist can be one of those best fashion decisions you ever make. It will save you time getting dressed in the morning, space is freed up for other bits and bobs and best of all, you get to wear your favourites more often instead of forgetting you had them at the back of your wardrobe. All wins in my opinion but what do you think?

What do you think of these 3 essential coats? Do you have one of each? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading beauties and have a nice week ahead!

  2. I love parkas :) But wool feels too itchy for me to wear. Faux fur looks amazing on others, I feel ridiculous in it :D Thanks for sharing and feel free to enter the giveaway :) xx

  10. I have seen faux fur coats making appearances all over the fashion blogsphere but I am a little shy to try it on. I'm not sure if I can pull it off without looking OTT, I blame it on small town living where fashion and beauty is almost non-existent.

  17. PAM!! How do you always do this to me? I've been looking for a Wollen Coat like that one. My bestfriends owns one like that and oh my god, it's so beautiful. I'm always telling her how much I want to borrow it and never give it back ahahaha.

    I have a pretty simnilar one to the Parka, but in blue. It's just kind of big on me since I start losing so much weight. I need a new one :p

  28. I love my green parka cause it's faux-fur lined and it seriously keeps me warm all winter (also, it's DKNY and I got it for such a steal!). I've been looking into replacing my old wool coat with something in a camel color too. That faux fur coat is gorgeous and I definitely need to have one in my life!

  31. Agreed! It's wonderful that you cleaned out the excess coats - I need to do the same...I have the same favorites I turn to constantly and could use a little breathing room in my closet. Great narrowed down choices - I think you've nailed down exactly the perfect styles :)

  40. I definitely think that the khaki parka and wool coat are two winter classics. However, I have to be saying that I have recently been switching back and forth between a classic raincoat lined for colder weather and a giant vintage faux fur coat as my staple winter coats.

  46. Maybe it's our hot Aussie climate or it could be I'm just lazy (we are in Summer though) but I don't even have a coat! Love these three though, they would cover all occasions :)

  50. It took my ages to find a parka that I actually liked. I'm not a massive fan of parkas, I prefer more wooden coats that have a style to them.
