Wrap Up For Winter With A Warm Winter Coat

One of the joys of working from home is that you don’t have to stand on railway platforms or at bus stops in the freezing cold on your daily commute.  Who has the luxury of a parking space these days?  My days of trekking into work are gone now that I am a blogger, but I still do the twice-daily school run on foot.  The Fitbit is a hard taskmistress!

Now that the ‘Beast From The East’ is rumoured to be on the move again though, it’s a good time to check your winter wardrobe and get prepared for wind, rain and snow.  You’ll need a warm winter coat that looks stylish but protects you from the elements.

Esprit Hooded Jacket with Wool and Plush Lining

Whether you are a fan of the warmth quilted jackets cocoon you in, or can’t live without a hood (and if you push a pram you’ll really appreciate one), there are plenty of winter coats to choose from at purse-friendly prices.

If a trendy parka or puffa jacket is your style or you prefer a classic trench coat, a quick scout about on websites such as John Lewis, Debenhams or House of Fraser will turn up some fabulous pieces.

If your bank account is still recovering from Christmas excesses though, your budget may not stretch to anything designer.  No matter.

I’m a big fan of Esprit who have a great range of winter coats to choose from in sizes 6 to 20.  There are new styles online every day and you can shop from your mobile using the Esprit App (ios and Android)  – even while you’re freezing on the railway platform!  I know I can always rely on Esprit for great value and durability with styles that easily match the high street.

Even better, if you find something you love in store and they don’t have your size, you can simply scan the barcode and the app will help you locate your item online.

When choosing your winter coat there are several things to think about as well as cut, colour and cost.

A heavy winter coat may be too stifling on a busy morning commute.  A shorter coat may leave you with wet legs if it pours with rain (nothing worse than cold, damp knees), and if you’re carrying a laptop or dragging a trolley-case then a hood may be crucial.

If you’re out and about a lot, you’ll need a warmer coat (for the school run for example) and you might need lots of pockets for keys and a mobile if you don’t want to lug a bag.

I’ve got my eye on a ladies down coat from Esprit.

Bright, lightweight and giving great protection against the cold, there’s no need to blend in when you can wear bright jewel colours like these.

Or how about a Parka which doubles up as weekend wear too?

There’s loads of choice and now is a great time to grab a bargain before the UK winter really begins.

You may as well look cool as well as comfortable when you’re braving the gales outside the school gates!

    Oh I do like a winter coat and I don’t think you can have too many. I love that one from John Lewis, very classic.

    I made sure to dig out all of my coats before Christmas as I knew I’d need them early this year. Although I’m really not looking forward to the snow x

    I actually have to go to London next week and I am scared of how cold it’s going to be as I’m coming from Spain. I am more of a casual type of girl so my winter jacket is a hiking one, which is both windproof and waterproof. And hopefully, warm enough for the beast from the east part 2.
