The headline news in your AW15 wardrobe is your coat, so it’s best to make it punchy. From the new ultra-long silhouette to the return of English heritage tweeds, here’s the run-through of the coats worthy of your undivided attention this season.

By Alannah Sparks

The English Lady

Brush up on your manners this season, as AW15 heralds the return of the frightfully proper English heritage coat. Savile Row mainstays such as Prince of Wales check, nubby tweed and houndstooth look modern again, especially when worn with off-kilter accessories and your favourite granny handbag.

The Military Cape

The quickest way to make your existing wardrobe stand to attention this AW15? Top it off with a commanding military cape. Sacai’s smart double line of brass buttons is key to ensuring you stay on the frontline of style.

The Great White

Nothing makes you look expensive like winter whites - and not just because of the dry-cleaning bills. Shades like oyster, cream and purest snow white lift winter complexions and add freshness to your look. The hot AW15 update? Block it with separates in luxurious tones of oxblood and cyclamen pink.

The Hot Fuzz

Wild thing fur has been high on the fashion agenda for a few seasons now, so don't dismiss it as just a bit of fluff - it’s here to stay. Marni’s alpaca rainbow is the only thing you’ll want to snuggle into when the chill sets in, and it will warm the cockles of your heart as much as it does your frozen limbs.

The Leather Trench

The Seventies favourite is back for 2015, fortified with a sex bomb colour palette – opt for Derek Lam’s cherry red for maximum hot-blooded appeal, and wear skin-on-skin style until winter’s bite brings out the goosebumps.

The Ankle Grazer

Cut a formidable silhouette as the nights begin to draw in, with Maison Margiela’s floor-sweeping showstopper. The long coat requires three things: height, grace and attitude. It’s a perfect nod to the season’s Victorian trend – just add stomping lace-up boots and a little Jack-the-Ripper menace.
