October. Time to make a statement. Ditch the shorts, the skirts, sandals and the bare legs and opt for a cover-up; a statement cover-up that will turn heads. It's winter coat time. Cosy, comfortable, coat time. This year, coats are peacock bold. Strong colours, shapes and patterns add warmth and character to your winter wardrobe.
Either opt for a classic trench for authenticity or go for a standout animal print, Burberry can offer both. Showers are best faced in a trench coat, so this may well be the best option, especially during the unpredictable winter months. Courageous style seekers will be drawn to monochrome animal prints for a look that stands out.
Keep it simple with COS this winter. Strong shapes and silhouettes are enduring style staples. Rounded shoulders and cute pixie collars add a swinging sixties edge, plus this style is flattering for all shapes and oozes femininity. Our favourite? The plum coloured beaut.
Wrap up warm in a cocoon coat from Jaeger if comfort and class is high on the winter coat priority list. Available in a number of rich, autumnal colours, the cocoon coat from Jaeger will brave wind, rain, sleet and snow. It's a chic and sophisticated option to see you from office, to post-work cocktails and weekend walks in the park.
