Our edit of the hottest coats to buy now...

Feast your eyes on the new season coats dropping into stores and online now! From classic camel trenches to bright checked coats, it’s time to invest in a new winter cover- up for the season ahead. Try a black or navy streamline coat for the office and a cropped wool style for the weekend.

When shopping for your new autumn/winter coat, follow these 5 tips:

1. Make sure the arms are the right length. They should end just at your wrist.

2. Keep your shape with a belted style if you’re petite and big coats swamp you.

3. Buy into this seasons ‘it’ colours of burgandy, maroon, khaki and teal. They all work really well with indigo jeans and tan boots.

4. If you like to cover your bottom and hips, go for a long length or even maxi wrap style to give you the coverage you need.

5. Go for quality. British weather means you’ll most certainly get the wear out of your coat! So make sure you buy one that will last and be prepared to pay around the £100 mark. If you like to wear a different coat each day of the week then by all means grab a bargain in Primark!
