Supremely versatile, a stylish black-and-white cover-up is the ideal cold-weather companion. M&S.com womenswear editor Becky Sunshine explains why.
Autumn/winter 2013 brings oversized, boyfriend-inspired shapes into focus, and this coat captures the trend perfectly. While I usually gravitate towards dark, solid colours, it can be fun to try something different and make a bit of a statement with a bold, checked pattern. This style is great for the working week, worn over soft tailoring, but looks just as good on the weekend with denim, a chunky knit and flat ankle boots for a more low-key result.
