The mornings are fresh and the nights are chilly and that can only mean one thing - it is time to update your Autumn Winter wardrobe. When it comes to the cold season the coat is the key piece and its now or never if you want to secure the best of the season. But where to start? Review your existing wardrobe - it may be time to update that classic coat that now looks tired or if you have a good collection of coats then don’t be afraid to opt for something more statement. Nothings more modern than a beautiful coat paired with denim and flats. Wear it with pride and let it define your style for the season.
So what makes a great coat? Regardless of your budget, material, cut and quality are key. If the best you can afford is high street then I would suggest starting with online research (yes, research!), type ‘wool’ into the store's search bar to make sure you are getting the best quality on offer.
To help you in your search, there are labels that are known for their coat offering - at Burberry you will find military styling and of course the iconic trench, at Chloe a romantic cape, at Max Mara the ultimate classic coat and at Whistles, the cocoon coat, and fabulous fur and leather.
But of all the new seasons fantastic offering which will work best for your personal style? Whether your a classic, romantic or bohemian, I have found the cream of the coats that will become your hero piece.
Classic - try luxurious camel
Minimalist - try the boyfriend
Romantic - play with proportion
Bohemian - try a cape
Casual Luxe - try the aviator
Fashion or Die - try a fun fur
