Is it time to buy a coat yet? We think so! Every girls’ favourite part of winter if buying a new warmer, and now’s the perfect time to snap them up to avoid disappointment.

There are certain criteria that a new winter coat must meet: it must be stylish (naturally), it must go with everything (essential), and it must be warm and practical (see ya, ¾ sleeves!).

This aubergine duffle coat from Topshop is all of the above.

It looks so warm we’d happily sleep in it, it’s in that lovely boozy burgundy colour that’s pretty much the hue of choice this season, and it looks totally like the cute Little Red Riding Hood inspired duffle coats that strutted down Mulberry’s AW11 runway.

Warm, affordable and designer-inspired? That definitely makes this piece a cool contender, we think.

Bound Seam Duffle Coat, £89, available at Topshop.
