One of the best investments you could make for your winter wardrobe is a great quality winter coat. By choosing an elegant, timeless, and classic winter coat in a suitable color, you can have the peace of mind that you have bought something that will last you for many years to come.


So, which winter coat should you choose?


Well, here at #fbo we stock a wide range of high-quality jackets and coats, and we have something for all occasions, all uses, and all body types.


To narrow down your choice of a winter coat, we recommend thinking about what you want out of it.


Do you want something that will keep you very warm on cold days? Do you live in a rainy area and need something to keep you dry? Or perhaps you are not too focused on warmth but on something that will look stylish while adding a bit of warmth? Either way, #fbo has the perfect winter coat for you!


For the ultimate in warmth and coziness, we recommend a parka with or without a faux fur lined hoodie. These lined coats end in the mid-thigh area, giving you maximum protection from the cold. Anoraks are also great cold fighters and although they are shorter than parkas, they are very comfortable and give your arms a lot of free movement. From leopard print fabric to floral prints, there’s a great selection in our outlets.

A teddy coat or tailored long coat can look incredibly smart and come in a variety of fabrics and styles. They are a great option if you’re looking for a smarter looking jacket that you can wear to work.


A belted Trench coat not only gives you protection from the rain but also offers a buffer against the icy winter winds. These look fantastic with just about any outfit and will ensure you are on-trend.


When choosing a winter coat, be sure to select one that will allow you plenty of room to wear thick sweaters and jerseys. Of course, do not make them too loose unless this is the oversized look you are going for.


In terms of color, neutral is always more common and we recommend coats in grey, black, brown, navy blue or tan so that you can easily mix and match it with other garments in your wardrobe. Or you can be bold this season and invest in the pink, purple, yellow, or red coat.


Finally, it is very important to choose a winter coat that suits your body type. We say if you have it flaunt it, as long as you feel good that’s all that matters. Avoid a jacket that is too puffy or bulky as this can have the effect of making you look bigger than you want to.
