On Saturday, I made my weekly pilgrimage to the real-life shops to carry out some field research. Essentially, it’s my job to bring you all the fashion goings on as they happen, and I find the most effective way of uncovering new trends is to sharpen my elbows and get out there to see first-hand what’s causing a frenzy. And this weekend, it was
all about coats. The blue in this coat will look incredible with yellow accessories. Rust is one of the biggest colour trends of the season, so this belted number is a sure-fire winner. This might just be one of the best leopard print coats of the season. We've seen so many influencers in this coat, it's a miracle it's still in stock. Use this gorgeous hue to breathe new life into your trusty jeans. This looks like it could of come from Marilyn Monroe's wardrobe archives—which is obviously a good thing. Real leather, and a real statement-maker. Because checks are basically a neutral, throw this coat over any ensemble. The slightly shorter hemline makes this coat ideal for petites. Plus, it's roomy enough to wear over even the chunkiest of jumpers. This is simply chic on every level—say hello to your new workwear hero. You might not think it, but lilac shades suit every skin tone and hair colour. Try it—you'll be impressed. Double-breasted coats are excellent at keeping in the heat. The classic trench is given the minimalist treatment in this trapeze silhouette. Pink coats were big a few seasons back. Now, it's all about blendable blush tones. No stylish woman should be without a timeless navy coat.
Seeing as your top half is now suitably cosy, let's turn our attention to the
best boots for fighting off the chill...
