Let’s face it ladies, Autumn is well and truly here (although I for one am not complaining about all that gorgeous sunshine over the weekend!), which means it’s time to give some serious thought about your outerwear for the season ahead. While I’d much rather swan about in a pretty summer dress, buying my autumn/winter coat is still pretty high up on my love-list. There’s a few trends to follow this season, so whether it’s cosy shearling, girly pastels, heritage checks or a chic cape, these are my on-trend picks for AW15
Let’s be honest, this trend is a tough one to rock without looking like a dodgy second-hand car salesman or seventies-throwback, but this faux shearling coat from Suncoo at ASOS manages to fall just on the right side of chic.

For years I bought a trusty black coat for winter each year, but as soon as I left the corporate world colour started coming back into my winter wardrobe and I really regret not doing it sooner. This powder blue cocoon coat from Gray & Willow is super stylish, totally smart enough for work!

Confession, I’m not a fan of checks or tartan, BUT I can get on board with a bit of houndstooth. This Marella Picco collarless coat is gorgeous, and currently half-price in the sale. Perfect for Autumn.

I bought this gorgeous woolen cape from Ted Baker as a panic airport purchase back in the Spring, and of course then the sun came out and I never got to wear it. I’m looking forward to getting out of the wardrobe for nights out and days when I need a bit of classic style.

If you caught my ‘Love Leather‘ post a couple of weeks ago, you’ll know I’m totally having a thing for this material right now. Suede is just leather’s softer, cosier cousin. Mango have done it again with this gorgeous suede trench-style coat.
