Top 5 Winter Coat Styles For Men

With winter well and truly on its way, you’ve no doubt begun to reach for your big winter coat as the finishing touch to any outfit. If you’re hoping to update your outerwear collection before the big freeze arrives, there is a huge choice of men’s winter coats for you to check out.

Buying a new winter coat can be a big decision; will it look good, and will it keep you warm? With that in mind, we take a look at the top 5 winter coat styles that you should consider ahead of your seasonal shopping trip this year.

Wool overcoat 



Possibly the smartest of winter coats, the overcoat is probably the style you can get the most value for money from. This is thanks to the versatility of an overcoat; wear it over a suit through the working week, or pair with jeans boots and knitwear for a stylish weekend look.

Heritage designs that include the likes of check prints can upgrade the simplest of styles, with the wool overcoat being a classic example. Consider sticking to the traditional longer style for maximum shelter from the elements, and choose from either single or double-breasted.

Shearling jacket

Shearling jackets first became fashionable thanks to the pilots of WWII, and have stuck around ever since in one form or another. Favoured for their extremely cosy inner lining, shearling jackets can be found in the style of trucker jackets, denim jackets, leather jackets and bomber jackets.

Great for creating a casual look, the shearling jacket can create your perfect off-duty, weekend style no matter where you’re heading to. Stick to neutral colours like beige, black, brown or grey for a classic look.

Puffer coat 



The puffer coat has become a staple of men’s streetwear, venturing a technical design for a cool edge. With its padded design, it creates the right amount of warmth without compromising on style. It can be worn for almost every occasion, day or night, smart or casual, with bright colours being a seasonal favourite.

Offset the grey, dull weather with a red, blue or orange puffer coat to add something exciting to your ensemble, whether you’re heading to work or out on the town.

Parka jacket

The parka jacket is possibly the most popular winter coat style, and has been for the last few years. This is because of its statement style and its ability to keep you warm even in the coldest of temperatures.

The parka jacket became a fashion item in the 1960s and has reinvented itself over the decades to become a technical coat, complete with faux fur trims, oversized fits and large pockets. It’s a versatile style, thanks to its long length, and can be worn for smart occasions or off-duty weekends.

Colours like khaki, black or navy are popular choices for their seasonal but easy-to-wear appearance.

Trench coat

One of the often forgotten about styles for your go-to winter coat is the trench coat. Made popular by Burberry, this sophisticated design is the perfect alternative to heavy duty winter coats.

Often made with a waterproof fabric and a longer length, the trench coat is timeless. While it often looks best worn smartly, there is no reason why it can’t be paired with jeans and a jumper or polo shirt. Sticking to the traditional beige colour is the most popular choice, but why not look black or navy styles for something a little subtler?

  1. I have just bought myself a black, belted button up, fitted coat that cost £79. I have never spent that much on myself before and I LOVE it.

  2. It's so important to have a decent coat, especially at this time of year. My husband just got a new one and donated his old one to charity.
