Shiny Quilted Happy People

As the colder winter nights draw in and the days appear shorter, winter coats are at the forefront of the savvy shoppers mind. And rightly so, as this year we're spoilt for style choice: duffles, parkas, cocoons (Egg) capes and fur. But one coat, a '90s favourite (I had one!), is making a comeback and doing it with gusto. The belted and cinched-waist quilted coats are looking better than ever, and far classier! Adapted for every taste and style, it is one of my favourite winter coat looks this year. However, my adoration for these warm puffy babies have taken on a somewhat Magpie obsession - SHINY! Oh so shiny! The shinier the better. It creates an over the top feel on a rather simple style. Extra puff and extra shine is the way to go. Set against the glorious winter sun or drenched in ice cold winter rain, these quilted coats will look absolutely spectacular.

These glorious creations would look stunning worn with anything and worn anywhere, so it's definitely a versatile coat; yes, even with all the shine going on. Told you I was obsessed. Plus, they will in no doubt keep you pretty darn snug and warm! A great investment.

Different lengths, different colours, with or without hood, for every budget; there are many choices. Go for the ultra blinding shine coupled with a stand-out colour or perhaps a more subtle sheen in an equally bright tone. And you can't go wrong with a glass-like sparkly number in classic black or brown. 

Here are a few that have caught my eye, including the tangy little gem pictured above. So sexy.
