Whether a bright pop of red or neon, a neutral black, something oversized, ankle-grazing, belted or asymmetrical, an overcoat is necessary for the cold winter months when you're travelling to and from work and standing in the wind.
For me, I can't go past something textured, a herringbone weave, maybe a boucle, a thick worsted woollen in an old school charcoal - something that sings of the 60's.
Just like this gorgeous coat sported by Miranda Kerr in Vogue UK's September issue.
Okay, so I think I'd need more layers underneath...
