THE AUTUMN COAT EDIT

Like a woman in a great dress, you also remember the woman in the perfect coat, says Vogue.co.uk editor Dolly Jones. Here, she talks us through the season’s key styles

SIXTIES CHIC: TAKE YOUR LOOK DOWNTOWN WITH RETRO STYLING

“I love the 60s silhouette,” says Dolly. “It’s timeless
and it makes you feel good. Try a belted coat with a
mini skirt, opaque tights and flat shoes – I’ve done it
every winter my whole life; it’s comfortable and you
always feel chic”

THE FAUX FUR
This Limited Edition jacket is ideal for adding character to off-duty denim, or for the more daring among you, team it with a mini skirt and boots

ARTFUL APPROACH: MAKE AN IMPRESSION AND EMBRACE YOUR CREATIVE SIDE

“Designers are getting playful for autumn/winter. There are so many different textures to have fun with that you can be unique – and you definitely won’t be apologising for your coat this season!”

THE LUXE BOMBER

Show your artistic side with Autograph’s creative
spin on the sporty bomber. With a beautiful satin
finish, it will take you effortlessly from day to night

THE PARKA
Take your outerwear collection to the frontline with this
khaki parka. It’s an obvious choice for weekends, but why
not push the boundaries and wear it with an evening
dress, too?

THE LEOPARD-PRINT COAT
Animal prints are a perennial favourite, but none more
so than leopard. Look to 1960s icons Elizabeth Taylor
and Jackie Kennedy for a true masterclass

MODERN CLASSICS: THINK TIMELESS SIMPLICITY WITH LUXURY APPEAL

“I had a mannish grey office coat last year and I’ve
never had more compliments. It tidies you up and makes
you feel pulled together. Even if your hair is messy, in a
good tailored coat you can get away with anything”
