As they say on Game of Thrones, winter is coming, and with it, the trusty winter coat. We may throw them into the back of our closets every time summer comes around, but by September, they’re back out in full force, and there’s no doubt they’re the most important component of a stylish winter wardrobe.

They have to go with every outfit, they make an important style statement and most importantly, they keep us warm – so which new-season coats will you choose to flatter your curves this season?

1. The Trench Coat

It may not be the warmest choice when the weather get really blustery, but the age-old trench coat is always a classy option to throw on over a smart dress to work, or wear with a pair of jeans and heels on a night out.

Falling just above the knee, the trusty trench can disguise any areas you’re not so keen on, while its chic belt, cinched at the waist, helps to show off your hourglass figure. If you have wide hips, opting for a trench coat that flares out below the belt can be a really flattering and fashionable choice.

2. The Oversized Coat

Snuggly and stylish at the same time, the oversized coat is a perfect option for girls who want to be comfortable but also cool. Aim to buy a coat that looks oversized on purpose, rather than just too big – and make sure you don’t opt for styles that are too boxy, as they can swamp your figure and make you look bigger than you are.

If you can make sure the buttons are around the waist to add some extra definition and accentuate your hourglass figure, that's even better. 

3. The Bomber Jacket

There’s nothing like throwing on a bomber jacket to add some pizzazz to a look. A sporty yet feminine look, a bomber is perfect for a casual outing, whether heading to a bar for some drinks or going shopping with the girls.

Leave it open over a fun top and let the bomber do its magic, creating waist definition and also showing off your bust. 

4. The Printed Coat

It’s fun, flirty and functional: The printed coat is a winner every single season, so you can rest assured that your purchase will still be on trend for next winter, too. Play it safe and let your print do the talking, pairing it with plain separates – or opt for clashing prints to really make a style statement. Go on, be daring.

If you’re not afraid to make a fashion statement, the cape can be a great choice for curvy shapes. They’re easy to wear, unique, and not too stifling during those warmer autumn days.

Choose a plain style that skims over the body; make sure you try before you buy as if the coat is too wide, it could add bulk. A more fitted look will suit curvier figures. Keep your clothes beneath smart and simple to let your cape do the talking.

6. The Puffa Jacket

Without a doubt the most cosy winter coat going, the puffa jacket has always been a favourite choice for those cold arctic months. Essentially like walking around with your duvet wrapped around yourself, the puffa jacket is the epitome of that rare breed – fashionable, but also deliciously snuggly.

For curvy girls, opt for smaller quilted styles rather than larger panels to avoid adding volume to problem areas. It’s also worth choosing a lightweight jacket to streamline your figure. If you’re blessed in the chest department, make sure you try your new jacket on for size to ensure there’s no straining across the middle.

7. The Leather Jacket

Timeless, edgy and appropriate for all seasons, the leather jacket never goes out of style. Throw it on over a smart dress to toughen up your look, or pair with jeans and a white Tee for classic, cool style. If you’re opposed to wearing leather, a faux leather fabric makes just the same style splash – and it will save you money, too.

If you’re bottom-heavy and want to accentuate your upper body, opt for a jacket with fun details such as studs or prominent zips. If you’re keen to show off your legs and bottom, go for something simpler, such as a dark, matte leather. A jacket down to your hips will show off your curves, whereas a shorter style will draw attention upwards, so the length really depends on which part of your body you want to highlight.

8. The Long Coat

A long, wool-mix coat is not only seriously warm, but also makes you look smart and elegant no matter what you’re wearing underneath.

Choose a tailored, unfussy style to flatter your figure, with a belt to break up the look and give your waist definition. Styles with wide lapels will frame your face and add interest to the look.

9. The A-Line Coat
