If you’re one of the fortunate ones a.k.a. someone who doesn’t spend their whole paycheck at KFC within an hour of it hitting your account, then you’ll have a handful of dollarydoos left over to spend on your new winter wardrobe. While it may be tempting to rock around in your year twelve rugby top, track pants and Kathmandu puffer jacket for another year, here are five cute alternatives for staying warm and dry this winter.

Gorman Love Sick Raincoat

Though everything from Gorman may cost a pretty penny (or three hundred) their raincoats aren’t too ridic, which is refreshing. Available in six different designs (although Love Sick is our fave) these little numbers are waterproof, have side pockets for your phone, elasticised toggles on the hood and hem to keep any rogue raindrops out, AND they come in matching designs for your dog.

Unreal Fur Dream Jacket

Bitches love faux fur full stop, which is why we couldn’t go past this forest green faux fur jacket from Unreal Fur. Featuring medium pile faux fur (say ‘faux fur’ again, we dare you) and a hook and eye closure at the neck, this bad boy will have people staring at you on public transport left, right and centre. One of the things we love most about this lil number is that it draws away from the fact that you’re just wearing jeans and white T underneath #winner.

UNIQLO Ultra Light Down Jacket

It’s very hard to go cold turkey on wearing puffer jackets, which is why we’ve included a transition option in this list. By getting your hands on a UNIQLO down jacket, you’ve taken a step back from the Antarctica-grade outerwear you’ve previously been rocking. This jacket is thin, light, warm and perfect for some mid-July alfresco dining. It’s also waterproof and packs down into a teenie tiny pouch for easy transport. We’re not really telling you to ditch your much-loved Kathmandu puffer (blasphemy), we’re just helping you set your sights on a second (real talk: fourth).

H&M Oversized Bomber Jacket

For those of you who forgot to buy a bomber jacket last season, fear not, they’re still apparently the overload of casual throwback outwear. One of our faves this year is the emerald green Oversized Bomber Jacket from H&M. It’s lightly padded for warmth and emerald green for optimum eye-catching fashun-ness. Like the faux fur Unreal Fur Dream Jacket (fauxfurfauxfurfauxfur), it doesn’t matter what you wear with it because errybody will be staring at your bomber.

Charnie Cape Jacket

We’ve saved the classiest for the lastiest on our cute winter wear list. The Charnie Cape Jacket is a chic fusion of the cape you desperately wanted and the thick winter coat you actually needed. This relaxed but professional number screams ‘fast walker on the streets and neat folder with the sheets’ more than any corporate casual blazer you’ll see in David Jones. It’s classy enough to make you stand out in the office, but also trendy enough to say ‘yes I’ve made something of my life, but that doesn’t mean I’m not a hoot with a few chardys under my Gucci belt’.
