Can we all believe it's the second week in November? Which means it's a mere five and a half weeks until the big day? Neither can i. However, it does mean we can start to think about being festive and certainly means we can think about the depths of Winter and what that may bring. Just like last year, i've decided to do some Christmas posts and of course i'm starting with coats!

Is it just me or are coats getting more expensive every year? It seems as though they're getting pretty pricey but i find that if you do spend that little bit more, and choose something well made they can last you a fair amount of time. There are plenty of new styles out this year and even some that have transitioned from last year, so you may already be prepared.

Two massive trends for coats this season is fur collars and leather sleeves, and wearing them together is a huge trend. If you're after a fur collar and don't want to shell the extra just to don that fur, why not buy a budget faux fur stole - easily found on the High Street - and add to it to a coat you've fallen in love with to last year's coat that you want to bring up to date. Leather sleeves can be found on all sorts of styles this season, from jackets to coats.

If you're a curvy girl try a coat with a flared skirt; they nip you in at the waist and skim everything that you want to be skimmed. They're also a great option if you're a very girly girl as they're ultra feminine and create a womanly shape. There are a multitude of patterns and colours of this style on the High Street as it's a staple shape and suits all types of women.

Again both faux fur and quilting are great trends for 2012, they are so readily available on the High Street and come in a million different colours, lengths and shapes. They're both very classic and fit a multitude of shapes and sizes. If you're looking for something that'll forever be wearable, then i'd go for one of these styles.

What's your favourite coat trend this year?
