Searching for a new coat this autumn winter 2023? You’ve come to the right place. Like everyone, I’m dreading the thought of the long cold winter months ahead – but one thing that’s making the change of season a little easier is the thought of all the new autumn winter coats and jackets to choose from to keep us cosy this winter.
The cooler winter months are a great excuse to update our wardrobe with some practical yet chic outerwear. After all, if there’s one thing the weather can guarantee in the UK, it’s the need for a good winter coat (or ten). Based on the biggest coat trends this season, I’ve rounded up the best outerwear the new season the has to offer. I’ll also be showing you exactly where to find the high street versions as you don’t need to break the bank and spend a fortune to find a decent one either.
I’m a big coat lover myself and after buying one every year, I’ve built up quite the selection. Your winter coat will see you through it all, so it’s worth investing in a good one. Not all coats have to be really practical (although warm coats are always a good idea); you can have fun with them too!
Keep scrolling for the best coats I’ve come across on my annual coat hunt, whether you’re in the market for an everyday trench, long black number or something more fun. Hopefully there’s something for everyone in this list.

Oversized Trench Coat, £90, ASOS DESIGN
Oversized Trench Coat, £90, ASOS DESIGN – buy now
Oversized = better. I can never fault loose-fit clothing, which is why I fell in love with this coat from ASOS. The borg collar adds a dose of casual to an otherwise super smart coat.
Crevan Double-Breasted Crepe, £617, Ashlyn
Crevan Double-Breasted Crepe, £617, Ashlyn – buy now
If you’re planning to make an investment, make it a coat that goes with everything. The long black coat is one of those, and while it’s one of AW23’s key trends, it’s not a one trick pony. It’s sharp and chic, so if that’s what you’re after, I recommend this double-breasted coat from Ashlyn.
Oversized Double-Breasted Wool, £270, COS
Oversized Double-Breasted Wool, £270, COS – buy now
A similar style but at a more affordable price point, this oversized wool coat from COS is another corker if you like the simple look of the long black coat. I’m obsessed with COS’ pieces right now, so this is going straight on my Christmas list!
Kennedy Double Breasted, £229, Aligne
Kennedy Double Breasted, £229, Aligne – buy now
Another versatile style that won’t go out of trend anytime soon is the chequered coat, which Aligne has nailed for this season. It manages to look casual and smart at the same time, which is ideal on those days when you really don’t have time to think about what to wear.
Lolly Coat, £450, Charlotte Simone
Lolly Coat, £450, Charlotte Simone – buy now
Charlotte Simone’s faux fur coats are fast becoming a cult item, and with just a week to make your purchase, you’ll have to act quickly if you want to make this afghan coat yours. The price is dear, but a Charlotte Simone coat is an investment worth making for so many reasons.
Scarf-Neckline Felt Jacket, £810, Toteme
Scarf-Neckline Felt Jacket, £810, Toteme – buy now
Toteme’s scarf style is the coat of the moment. Who doesn’t love a coat that combines two winter warmers? This is another pricey style so definitely won’t be affordable for everyone, but you’ll find similar styles on this list too.
Montague Trench, £235, House of Sunny
Montague Trench, £235, House of Sunny – buy now
Trench coats are always a good idea, but I have a particular penchant for leather look styles. This chocolate brown trench from House of Sunny is an autumn essential, if you ask me.
Grey Scarf Detail Jacket, £75, River Island
Grey Scarf Detail Jacket, £75, River Island – buy now
Looking for the designer look on a budget? This River Island jacket is the answer. At just £75, it’s hundreds cheaper than Toteme’s scarf coat but will still keep you warm and toasty with the help of a built-in scarf.
Joe Coat Burgundy & Pink Tartan, £330, Sezane
Joe Coat Burgundy & Pink Tartan, £330, Sezane – buy now
Add some texture with this tartan coat from Sezane, which also offers a welcome pop of colour during the grey period. It’s not all style, no substance either. With a beautiful lining, it really will keep out the cold.
Fur-effect coat with appliqués, £119.99, Mango
Fur-effect coat with appliqués, £119.99, Mango – buy now
PSA: the sell-out jacket from Mango is back this year. I have a feeling this duffle coat won’t stick around for long.
Lupe Gold Metallic Leather Trench, £155, AmyLynn
Lupe Gold Metallic Leather Trench, £155, AmyLynn – buy now
It’s a bold choice, but I can’t get enough of this gold trench coat from Amy Lynn. If you want to embrace the metallic trend wholeheartedly, this coat is for you.
Bruno Bow Trench Coat, £175, Sister Jane
Bruno Bow Trench Coat, £175, Sister Jane – buy now
A trench coat with a difference, Sister Jane’s Bruno Bow coat is ticking off two trends in one here. Adorned with bows, the brand is giving a classic piece a feminine update that I just love.
Chunky Borg Coat, £65, Topshop
Chunky Borg Coat, £65, Topshop – buy now
We all need a pop of colour sometimes, which is where this chunky borg coat from Topshop comes in. It’s practical too as there’s no doubt this will be warm and cosy. I’m sold!
Silver Vegan Leather Trench, £189, Never Fully Dressed
Silver Vegan Leather Trench, £189, Never Fully Dressed – buy now
Never Fully Dressed is another brand taking the metallic look to a whole new level. This silver trench really is an outfit in itself, so while it probably won’t be worn on the school run, it’s definitely a head-turner when you want it to be.
UO Faux Fur Trim Corduroy Trench Coat, £89, Urban Outfitters
UO Faux Fur Trim Corduroy Trench Coat, £89, Urban Outfitters – buy now
To get the Charlotte Simone look on a budget, head to Urban Outfitters. This corduroy coat with contrasting faux fur trims offers a similar look, but at just £89.
Teddy coat, £84.99, H&M
Teddy coat, £84.99, H&M – buy now
Last but not least, we have this über-cosy teddy coat from H&M. The contrasting faux leather trims give it a grown up, that would actually look really sharp with some tailored trousers and heeled boots.
