1. Capes- In terms of capes the whimisical and plaid patterns are the order of the day. More of a fashion statement than pratical, capes are not always the best for keeping warm, but when you can look like Red Riding Hood, who cares?? (1, 2, 3, 4)
2. Patchwork- when purchasing a patchwork coat think multi-coloured, shaggy and oversized. Topshop has some great high street alternatives for those on a tight budget. (1, 2, 3, 4)
3. Raincoats- By far the most pratical of trends, raincoats featured on the runway at Hunter Origional, Stella McCartney, Miu Miu and DKNY. (1, 2, 3, 4)
4. Sheepskin- Whether bold or more subtle, sheepskin is having a moment, be it in the lining of a coat, trim on the cuffs or all over. I already have my Canadian leather and sheepskin coat ready to go for when the weather gets chilly. (1, 2, 3, 4)
And if these four trends aren't your thing, then why not try a blanket wrap coat, as seen in Burberry and on a certain Miss Cara Delevingne.
