We all need the perfect black coat in our wardrobe...

Give your lockdown walks a chic makeover with a classic, black winter coat. A warm winter coat in black acts as an anchor for your outfit, whatever you're wearing; whether it's off-setting your sweats or a practical piece to bundle you up against the elements.

Come loungewear or activewear, you won't go wrong by pairing your look with the staple of all staples, a black winter coat. Here's our pick of warm women's winter coats from the high street.
