As I explained in this post, I'm a huge fan of the mackintosh/trench coat hybrid, which looks great, with a bit of tweaking, on all shapes and sizes.
It's the perfect blend between Modern and Country,
and, when given any kind of contrast piping, prevents coats from veering towards dressing-gown chic, and steers them firmly towards utter fabulousness. Here, then, are my top ten for Autumn 2012....picked to suit the princess and the pauper....
|Hobbs Bryony Mac £74 (was £149|
|Hobbs Kirsten Mac £95 (was £159)|
|Miss Selfridge Contrast Princess Coat £85|
|Karen Millen (outlet) £88 (was £518)|
|Mango Contrast Striped Trench Coat £44.99|
|Burberry Prorsum Stretch Gabardine Trench|
|Lipsy Contrast Mac £80|
|Lipsy Single Breasted Piped Mac £78|
|Savoir Piped Classic Mac £45|
