The military pea coat

: A sure-fire way to sail into the new season in style (the pea coat was the traditional outerwear of choice for seafarers). Reinterpreted for 2016 with ornamental buttons and a khaki palette, team it with autumnal shades like russet and burgundy for a look that feels cool and considered.

The great classic

: Sharp and timeless, this iconic Crombie-style design is always a chic option for city dwellers. Play up to the mannish undertone, slipping it on over office tailoring (culottes and lace-up boots for a modern spin) or denim and polished loafers on weekends.

The minimalist overcoat

: This style is for women who like a no-frills, no-fuss lifestyle. Cut with simplicity in mind, this one-button overcoat is a solid choice for mastering a modern silhouette. Wear it with luxurious separates like cashmere, wide-leg trousers or cigarette-style leather pants.

The textural masterpiece

: There are coats and then there’s this warm and fuzzy, wool and alpaca blend style from Autograph. Unstructured and boxy, it’s a must for anyone who dares to stand out this season and yet, it’s surprisingly versatile. Falling just below the knee, wear it with a cosy jumper and denim.

The luxe (and cosy) trench

: We all love the beloved trench coat, but sometimes it doesn’t quite cut it in freezing climes. Cue this reworked wool-blend design with a flattering wrap fastening. Pop the collar and add a wide-brimmed hat for a Seventies mood.

The fashion cover-up

: Shearling aviator coats are serious fashion property. A must on the street-style hot list, wear one and you can guarantee your sartorial status will soar. However, be careful with proportions: this faux-shearling style (coming soon) is oversized, so keep your bottom half streamlined in skinny jeans or a chic midi dress.
