We love the changes autumn brings – the cooler temperatures (especially considering the heatwave we experienced this summer), the leaves changing colour and of course shopping for new season essentials. Suffice to say we adore autumn mostly for the latter. In addition to ankle boots and light knits, a transitional coat is the backbone of every autumn wardrobe. Whether you opt for a cape which had a major moment on the AW18 catwalks (as seen at Givenchy and Saint Laurent) or go for a stylish traditional trench, ensure your autumn coat has lasting power. Here’s our edit of our current faves, all of which are timeless enough to see you through the season and beyond.
