But every year, the high street tries and you have to commend them for it. Luckily, this year, bum-skimming jackets are out and long, cosy coats are in - which gives us a head start on the whole ordeal.
To save you the trouble, we've searched high and wide for this season's best styles. Check out our pick of the 15 most badass winter coats to buy now:
