We investigate why totally huggable and happy-go-lucky coats have flipped into a blanket, FROW-wide trend that women from all style tribes totally love.

The seemingly endless outstretch of grey skies, downpours of rain, and unfruitful promises of pretty snow can grind down any spirited fashion aficionado. Don't let winter kill your buzz, wear a coat that'll make you happy and kick everyone in your tube carriage out of autopilot!

#3: They are SO cosy.
