Season of the Coat

It's that time of year again when coats are filling up the shops in every shape and colour. I believe that the coat is the best investment you can make for your wardrobe as it can transform an outfit more than any other piece. This season, studding is the key detail to look out for (look 1), tartan is the print of choice (look 2) and the cocoon shape (look 5) is perfect if you're a fan of sixties styles like me! 
I had the pleasure of styling the coats below, along with Style Columnist Lynne McCrossan, who also modelled them beautifully.
