I love this retro-tastic coat from the new Erica Davies x John Lewis collaboration (£280 – top picture). Visually, it comes up trumps; I’m a fan of the floral jacquard fabric and the lovely autumnal tones. It doesn’t score hugely on warmth, you’ll definitely need a coat liner (or a bigger coat) when we get properly into winter, but it’s well suited to the current transitional temperatures. And a perfect day-to-evening option. I’ve worn it open here, but the statement coat comes with a contrasting belt.
Even more statement styles on my radar here..
