See our selection below and make sure you're ready for the big freeze.

For rainy days: Protected Species Waterproof Parka
Those mornings when you look out of the window and see it pouring down, knowing that you have to go outside? They will never be as painful again with Protected Species' weather-resistant, high-performance parka that provides coverage, shield from the wind, and a soft, breathable fabric for extra comfort. Comes in several colour options too.
For chilly autumn walks: Culthread Colville II Recycled Vegan Puffer Jacket Olive Green

For a colourful twist on the classic trench: Protected Species Waterproof Trench Coat Burnt Horizon
A trench coat, but with a bit of colour? Yes please. Protected Species brings a hint of red to their take on this classic garment, which will see you through the chilly days in style. Wear with your favourite jeans and a pair of boots for an updated take on a classic autumnal look.
For a faux take on shearling: Issy London Weekend Vivien Panelled Recycled Faux Shearling Coat Tan
Love the look of shearling but don't want sheep to suffer? Issy London has got you covered (quite literally) with this cosy caramel-hued design that will add Seventies chic to a pair of wide-leg jeans or a floaty maxi dress.
For the in-between season: Will's Women's Continental Vegan Parka Beige
You know those days that are not yet freezing, but still require a cover-up? This lightweight cotton parka is perfect for that in-between season. Like any Will's product, it's carbon-neutral and made from materials that are certified as sustainable – it even has biodegradable buttons.
For winter days: BEDI Kirsi Women's Econyl ¾ Parka
When the big chill has truly arrived, stay warm by choosing BEDI's hooded parka, crafted from Econyl – a material derived from ocean plastic waste. Not only is this coat water-repellent, but it also features multi-layer insulation that adds warmth minus the bulk.

When it comes to winter evenings, things don't get more glamorous than this recycled faux-fur coat from Issy London. Wear it over your favourite after-dark dress for added movie-star chic, and enjoy the warmth, knowing that no animal was hurt for your look.
For a statement: Culthread Faraday Recycled Vegan Puffer Jacket Sterling Silver
If eye-catching styles are your thing, then look no further than this high-octane design from Culthread. Team it with a more pared-down look to allow the silver to take centre stage, and don't fret if you're caught out in the rain – its performance-focused material is rainproof.
