Our Editors All Agree–This Bestselling COS Coat is A Cold-Weather Lifesaver

In December I spent my time perfecting a low-maintenance, highly-comfortable winter outfit, and settled on a wool coat, a fluffy knit, jeans, and ankle boots, and I've been wearing this (plus couple of variations on the formula) for the last 6 weeks. So, you can imagine my surprise as I stepped out of the house in my regular uniform this week only to have to retreat back indoors thanks to the cold. Did we have any warning that a cold snap was about to set in? That there would be winds so cold that my hands and face would be immediately numb? Perhaps I missed it. But the last couple of weeks have been a strong reminder that winter isn't done with us yet, and unfortunately for me, my usual tailored coat just isn't cutting it.

On the cold, wet mornings when the thought of leaving your duvet is particularly difficult, there is a cosy and chic option to help you battle the inclement weather. Thanks to high-street hero COS, I've come across a coat that manages to tick several boxes all at once. Insulating? Check. Stylishly understated? Check. Affordable price tag? Triple check. Yes, the COS puffer coat deserves certified icon status, and if you're only finding out about them now, allow me to introduce you to the coat that's about to change your winter for the better.

It only makes sense to invest in a winter coat that you'll rewear forever, so it's important to think of just how much you get for your money. Here we have what I can only describe as a "portable duvet" for anything winter has to throw at us–come rain, ice or wind, and, should you be thinking that a pouffy, meringue of a coat isn't your style, there are 12 different versions of longline, cropped, sleeveless, even a drawstring waist puffers, so there's a coat for every look.

In true COS fashion you can also expect the puffer coat in a timeless colour palette of elegant neutrals (black, brown, grey and cream), as well as a couple of seasonal additions that will easily integrate into your wardrobe (the khaki green is a firm favourite). So, if you spent this week wondering just how to stay warm and look good, this reliable number is the piece to instantly elevate your entire 'fit, and it's come at exactly the right time. 

If you're ready to trade in your flimsy winter coat for a sensible and stylish new upgrade, keep scrolling to shop the COS puffer coat we can't stop thinking about. (And psst, act fast, there's 25% off these coats until Tuesday 24th January, so your already wise purchase will feel that extra bit better).
