Adding texture to an otherwise simple piece can really give an outfit that added oomph, and Pretty Lavish has done just that with this bouclé coat. Bouclé fabric is made from a series of loops, giving it an almost sheepskin look without the sheep. This version is made from 100% polyester so is suitable for vegans, and the longline cut and belt give it a fabulously feminine cut.
Borg long coat, £60, Oasis
If we had to pick one coat to snuggle up in, it would be this Oasis one. A longline version of the much-loved teddy bear coat, it has cosy written all over it. The versatile cream colourway lends itself to a ski trip, weekend away or Sunday pub outing. We love the all cream outfit the model wears, but it will look just as great with brown, black or denim tones. Plus, it's in the sale - so snap it up before it's too late!
