Top Five Winter Coats
Winter coats are generally purchased as an investment in fashion – a versatile piece that’s life extends beyond one season. To this end we usually play it safe, choosing a classic black wool coat.
Maybe it’s time to explore something a little more daring? While it’s wise to stick with classic lines, it’s easy to mix it up with fabulous fabrics and colours. Coats are not just about being practical, they speak volumes about our fashion credentials.
So at woman with drive, we encourage you to ditch the five-year coat plan and lash out on a statement coat that exudes confidence. Here are our top five statement coats.
