Winter Warmers

Written by Brid Mannion (Lifestyle Dundee)

As summer starts to slow and tans begin to fade the ‘winter blues’ start to kick in and take their toll.

Usually this is a dreaded moment for everyone but if, like me, you relish in the thought of thick autumnal jumpers and chic winter jackets then you will be right in your element this year!

New trends have poured in this season with a 70s revival, chic mac jackets and the firm favourite parka making a return!

It is so hard to constantly stay stylish and on trend when it is hurricane gales and thick snow outside but with the vast range of jackets on offer, the Overgate stores make it that little bit easier.

A jacket is a key staple item in your wardrobe and will see you through the cold, winter months of the year. They can make you feel stylish, on trend and most importantly cosy!

With many stores offering varying styles in varying colours it can be hard to find what works best for you. So, here are my coats that made the cut from our retail favourites such as Topshop, H&M and River Island.

Psst! Students! Your special discount will add the real sparkle to your Christmas this year


I start off my winter warmers with these Topshop numbers.

Topshop can be a little pricey however these jackets are a true investment for this winter and many more to come.

Grey longline ‘slouchy’ coat £89.00

This will add a bit of chic to any outfit as it is an instant eye catcher, an on trend colour and a little different than your average jacket due to the length. This can take your look from day to night!

Faux fur ‘Hybrid’ coat £89.00

This navy wool blend and fur jacket gives both warmth and style to your winter wardrobe. The fur trim adds a glam look which allows it to both enhance and also go hand in hand with your outfit whilst keeping you warm and cosy!

River Island never used to be my favourite place to shop however that changed fast when I really took a look! River Island offers some amazing pieces over every category imaginable!

Grey leather look and faux suede jacket £100.00

This jacket is both leather, suede and fur- what more could you want? I loved this jacket, it fitted well and can add a special element to your outfit! The pale colour is a nice contrast in such a dark season and adds a bright touch to darker winter clothing and accessories. Perfect for date night, lunch with friends or a hot chocolate date!

H&M has always been a firm favourite of my mine and it never fails to produce.

This boucle jacket is the perfect winter warmer. It can be worn dressed down with jeans and boots or dressed up with your Christmas party number!

Debenhams has an array of departments to peruse and Henry Holland is not one I often found myself at however I was more than pleasantly surprised.

Khaki fur trim parka £89.00

This jacket is (which I ended up buying!) is so super cosy, it has a fleece lining with fur trim and a fur hood attached. It can also be worn a number of ways, with jeans and a thick winter jumper or a shirt dress with knee high boots! This definitely is worth the money and will keep you warm through those cold winter months!

Oasis often have tempting offers on in store and clothing that makes you intrigued. However I have never really shopped here, I was very surprised and loved most things I saw on the shop floor!

‘Amy’ belted drape coat £78.40


Office chic, Christmas party, shopping, lunch, dinner with friends, date night?!

This jacket can do everything! This jacket is a chic and warm bordeaux colour with the buckle detail adding something really special! This would look great with a wooly winter fedora or dressed up with your sparkly Christmas heels.

This jacket is so warm and fluffy that I recommend it to everyone and anyone! It gives you that cool 70s touch while doing its job spectacularly! It can add a unique suede effect to your winter wardrobe.
