Winter Coat Help
I am looking for a good winter coat up to the price of £225 (Unless the website has a discount code available).
I am 17 and I want a statement winter coat, blue coats normally compliment me, but I want something that will really stand out. Whether it's a bright colour or just a coat that isn't seen everywhere. I want it to actually keep me warm, not a coat that is poorly made material wise. My wardrobe is 60/40 on smart/casual clothes at the moment so it would need to be incorporated into both looks (I already own a pea coat and duffle coat as my winter coats).
Even though puffa/quilted jackets seem to be over worn by people of my age at the moment, I really like bright blue ones. However I also like these three jackets if anyone could give their opinions on them:
Maharishi | Maharishi Ghillie Flight Jacket at ASOS
G-Star | G-Star Parka Coat at ASOS
Fred Perry Dark blue padded jacket- at Debenhams.com
It would be of great help if you could suggest some coats or even links/pictures for me!

They all look pretty hideous to me, if I'm honest. What about a vintage sheepskin jacket, if you want to make a bit of a statement? A bit Del Boy, but could look awesome if pulled off with confidence.

I don't think Del Boy's sheepskin coat would suit me, however I've just had a quick look online and there's some that I've found that are nice but are way out of my budget. I have found some nice Shearling coats (if they're the same thing?) but once again all the nice ones are double my budget so far... Is there any websites/brands you could advise me to look on?

A bright red Parka.
A guy at work has a Canada Goose one and looks surprisingly good teamed with trousers and shoes with a hint of shirt and tie peaking through. Though looks even better with a chunky knit and some faded denim and boots.
Carhartt's Anchorage is a cheaper alternative..

I like that Maharishi one
Canada Goose is out of budget
Vintage shearling coats on eBay are a ting tbh
