From classic belted trench coats to cosy quilted down jackets, we’ve picked a style for everyone in our round-up of best winter coats for 2022, including the trenches, shearlings and puffers from our Great British Brands, high street heroes and catwalk favourites. The last two years’ events have thrown the fashion industry’s shortcomings – namely, wastefulness and unsustainable turnaround – into sharp relief, so it’s not surprising that the focus is on timeless fabrics like wool and leather, classic cuts (the belted coat is having a moment) and versatile colours.

Wrap up with our edit below. As always, keep the planet in mind when shopping. Re-wearing old clothes is the best way to be sustainable, but if you can’t avoid it then shop consciously at responsible retailers, as well as rental and resale sites.
