Apparently, footfall on British high streets has taken a tumble this festive season but, like the calm before the storm, the January sales will follow swiftly and sometimes, violently.
Anyone willing to brave the high street at this time of year deserves more than a medal.
However if, like me, you’ve left it entirely too late to wrap up for the winter, it may become a necessary evil to endure the crowds.
Either that or you could take the sensible option and shop online for that perfect winter coat. Take a look at our top seasonal styles of the cosy variety.
Adidas Originals Parka – You can’t beat a classic parka. And, as usual, Adidas have come up with the goods. In traditional olive green, this understated and perennially fashionable parka boasts all the qualities you would expect from a brand that has lured away Kanye West from Nike. The drawstring hood is perfect for those icy winds too.
BOSS Orange OPolice – For something with a little extra class, try the BOSS Orange range of mid-length jackets. Made with 60% wool this zip fastened, blazer inspired coat is a great addition to any winter wardrobe and is sure to keep you warm and cosy long after the brand has made back its losses in China.
G-Star RAW Radar Garber – With button fastenings and manufactured from wool and leather, the G-Star Radar Garber is also a touch of class for the winter season. G-Star have recently teamed up with DJ Afrojack continuing their recent obsession with celebrity endorsement. The jacket works equally well with jeans or in the office.
Strellson Sportswear Swiss Cross – This polyester and nylon, zip fastening über jacket is one for really harsh weather conditions. Guaranteed to keep you warm and dry, much like the Swiss army recruits it was inspired by. It comes in an understated shade of grey as part of its city camouflage. You can pick one up at this store.
Chevignon Montmartre – If you’re after a little je ne sais quoi then the Chevignon Montmartre has it in spades. Whilst it may not be the warmest jacket on our list the Montmartre simply oozes style and sophistication.
If stepping out onto the high-street during the madness of the January sales is just a step too far, then all of these jackets, and more can be found online.
Make sure you keep warm this winter and maintain that seasonal style without risking life and limb among the braying crowds.
