Choosing your winter coat can bring about many a dilemma. To make the process as pain-free as possible, we've highlighted the key styles for this season and how to style them.

Whether you're looking for a coat or jacket for a night out, the office or for winter walks, we've got your style covered.

Born in the 1940s during WWII, the bomber has since been adopted by everyone from the British skinhead movement all the way to today's most high-end fashion brands.

Traditionally great for casual and street-focused outifts, the bomber now comes in more tailored versions, perfect for dressing up a little more. This is one of the better options for the autumn and transitional months.
Another military classic, the peacoat was originally made for the American Navy. This iconic bit of outerwear will easily sit on top of both casual and smart outfits.

Make sure the jacket isn't too baggy in the arms or body as it's supposed to be a streamlined fit. This is your best bet if you're looking for that perfect smart-casual option.
New Look - Overcoat
The overcoat is probably the smartest option out of these pieces. Having said that, it's not uncommon to see it worn with more classically streetwear pieces nowadays, so don't be afraid to mix up your formal and casual pieces.

Your overcoat should fit as well as your tailoring does. The shoulder seams should sit on the beginning of your shoulders, the cuffs should just touch the end of your wrist and it shouldn't look oversized in the body.
Originating in the 1930s as an alternative to heavy wool outerwear fishermen would wear at the time, the puffer has since been donned by everyone from P. Diddy to Daniel Craig. A winter classic anyone can pull off.

Puffer jackets can come in different fits but ours is a snug fit and can easily be worn as part of smart and casual outfits. If you want the oversized look, just size up. If not, you want to make sure the cuffs sit at the top of your wrist and the hem sits nicely on your waist.
With heritage stretching back to the late 1800s, the denim jacket has long been a mainstay in the menswear world. For a more trend-led style, opt for a denim jacket with a borg lining.

Another piece that's great for the transitional months but also very easy to layer up. Try a hoodie underneath when the temperatures drop. Much like the bomber, your denim jacket should sit above the waist and it's not a bad thing if your sweatshirt, hoodie or shirt cuffs are poking outside of your jacket cuffs.
