I don't know whether you'd consider this stylish (depends on the rest of your wardrobe I guess) but I have a Uniqlo ultra light down jacket in black and it's been one of the most useful things I've bought. It's very warm for how lightweight it is, packs up tiny and as long as I'm dressed fairly casually seems to go with almost everything.
And at the other end of the 'smartness spectrum' I've so recently bought this https://www.cotswoldoutdoor.com/p/jack-wolfskin-womens-selenium-A4215061.html?colour=3539
It's like it's made from magic, the warmth is incredible, I love it!
I have recently bought this which looks like it will be great as a smart winter coat https://www.next.co.uk/g6145s7/821335#821335
I have a pea coat which looks good with jeans and work clothes.
I'm shortly returning to work after being a sahm for a few years so I will have some spare money to smarten myself up! I have a long Tog24 coat that is good when its actually winter but nothing that works as a smart in between coat/jacket. I have a black leather jacket and a denim jacket, but I took my kids to the park today and it was so windy I was chilly within minutes.
I chucked on a really thin waterproof that I had in the car but I would love a jacket that suits my shape (pear) that is warm but still stylish. I'm working on updating my wardrobe to having some nice quality things that will last but when I have to put my waterproof over the top its ruining what I have on underneath and I feel really scruffy!
