Baby, it's cold outside!

It’s time to admit it. It’s cold. With that confession comes the coat and whether you’re clinging on to the hope of winter sun or you’re ready to embrace a cold snap, then at WSd HQ we have the outerwear for you…

The MINKPINK Teddy coat (£95) is the epitome of all encompassing cosiness and will be your sartorial savior this winter and for many more to come. The classic cocoon cut of this coat creates a clean shape amid the fuzziness, making it the perfect throw on and go style for effortlessly luxe warmth.

Cosiness continues to triumph in store with the Vero Moda faux fur bomber (£58). The rich caramel shade keeps this beauty classic, which will ensure it resurfaces from your A/W wardrobe year after year. The turtleneck feature will guarantee optimum warmth, while the iconic and oh so on trend bomber cut makes this wonder a do-it-all-style.
The clocks go back tomorrow and while this means we can relish an extra hour in bed on Monday morning, it’s also the catalyst for darker evenings ahead. My advice is to embrace the opportunity to get your hygge on and also brighten things up with the Scotch & Soda electric blue wool mix coat (£190). The notch lapel and one button closure combo create a classic and elegant look while the injection of cobalt adds a chic update. Add a splash of print to the block colour and style a la Sarah with a dreamy Becksöndergaard silk scarf.

Who doesn’t flipping love a bargain and what could be more economical than a fabulous coat that’s reversible too?! Get two styles for the price of one with the Vero Moda Toni shearling and faux leather coat (£68). With this beauty the interplay of sumptuous textures creates definitive lines, while the collarless style adds a hint of elegance. We’ve had Peter pan collars and ruffles but the power collar of the moment is achieved through combining varying heights and cuts. So team this collarless number with the MINKPINK Seven Wonders Skivvy dress (£45) to achieve the statement neckline of the moment.

For the perfect office outerwear reach for the Vero Moda Wool Coat (£55). Refined and elegant, this sleek cut will fit in nicely amid your chic workwear wardrobe. Available in black or teal, it’s a blank canvas for a patterned and colorful scarf. Contrast the heavier wool with a dash of Becksöndergaard silk in the form of the Roan scarf, which is adorned with a print of hand drawn leaves (£65).

The iconic parka will never waver and Vero Moda has got it spot on with this year’s version. The Betsie Parka (£84) is filled with a combination of down and sleeping bag technology so its not heavy like a full down coat yet still traps the air for extra warmth.  Khaki green adds a military vibe while faux fur ticks the box for effortless texture building. The luxury padding and multiple pockets means this coat is a master class in functional off-duty style.
At WSd we also have the answer to the age old winter shopping challenge whereby you wrap up for the high street chill yet you’re sweltering by the time you’ve done one round of the store. MINKPINK has got the lighter options covered with the Folktale bomber (£85) or the Now or Never suede rust jacket (£98). Simply layer up and voila you’re ready to tackle the festive madness!

The winter coat is one of the hardest working pieces in your wardrobe and with this line up there’s a worthy winner for everyone- faux real!
