9 of the Best Coats to See You Through Winter

Like it or not, it’s impossible to deny that the temperature has plummeted in recent weeks. And as much as we’re reluctant to pop strappy heels and dresses into hibernation, we’re celebrating the fact that coat weather has officially arrived.

Every wardrobe needs at least one great coat to see you through the chilly season. If you’re hunting for a new one currently, you’re in luck as our favourite local designers haven’t missed a beat and have served up everything from bold and colour coats to coats in an always-in-style neutral colour palette.

Discover our favourite coat trends to try this season as well as our favourite coats that you can shop right now.

BRIGHT IDEAS

Far too often the arrival of winter tends to signal a departure from bold and beautiful colours that tend to dominate the warmer months.

This season, however, things are different as there are a plethora of painterly coloured winter coats available out there.

Sure to keep colour lovers happy this season, designers have embraced a vivid palette of colour. Our go-to is Twenty-Seven Names ‘Miles’ coat in mint green, which you can discover in the gallery below.


ADD SOME TEXTURE 

If a coat in a vibrant, head-turning colour isn’t bold enough for you, why not opt for a coat created from interesting textures?

We can’t get enough of this out-there Trelise Cooper number, that’s not only faux fur but has been adorned with love hearts too.

 

NEUTRAL TERRITORY

If in doubt this season, a neutral colour palette is the way to go.

Not only are soft caramel hues and beige tones always in fashion, the earthy hues are easy to work into the rest of your the wardrobe and can be teamed with almost anything.

You can get more inspiration for wearing neutral tones right here.

Reese Witherspoon has taken to Instagram to share the recipe for her go-to green smoothie recipe

As far as breakfasts go, a nutritious, antioxidant-packed green smoothie is a great way to start the day. But we will admit, sipping on the same spinach-loaded smoothie day after day can get a little boring.

Fortunately, Reese Witherspoon has come to the rescue and shared her recipe secret green smoothie recipe with her friends.

Last week the actress took to Instagram and revealed the nutritious, health-enhancing ingredients that she pops in her blender every morning. Witherspoon also revealed that the recipe is actually courtesy of her Little Fires Everywhere co-star, Kerry Washington.

A post shared by Reese Witherspoon (@reesewitherspoon) on

According to the Instagram post, Washington shared the recipe with Witherspoon while seated together at an awards ceremony 10 years ago! Washington apparently shared the smoothie recipe after Witherspoon complimented her skin and asked her how she keeps it glowing and healthy. Washington’s answer was the green smoothie.

While the recipe includes plenty of fresh fruit and veggies, in the video Witherspoon encourages her fans to add protein powder, almond butter or flaxseed.

Witherspoon admits that it’s her go-to option for breakfast and it keeps her feeling full until lunchtime. “I know it looks like it tastes gross, but it tastes so good!” she says.

If Reese has been drinking the same nutritious concoction for nine years, it’s got to be tasty!

Try out her smoothie for yourself using the recipe below.
