With autumn officially here, it’s time to start thinking about layering up - hurrah! That’s right, although the summer months are full of vibrant fashion trends like floaty midaxi dresses and coastal grandma chic, for me autumn is just a tad more exciting. I believe that autumn is superior simply because it allows us to layer up, bundle up and dress up a little more. And now with the clocks going back, it’s time we really thought about assessing our cold weather options. The first port of call? A really great coat. To me, the right coat can take you far and serve you well. It can keep you warm, dress up a simple outfit or completely hide the outfit underneath should you be rushing out the door, making them a surefire investment for any autumn wardrobe.

So, where to buy great coats this autumn? Luckily I know just the place.
