The mercury may still be telling us it’s summertime but any forward thinking fashionista will already be considering her options for her biggest autumn/winter fashion statement– the coat. The Autumn-Winter 2015/16 shows showed us that there is an on-trend option for every shape and style, and we salute the fashion houses for their diversity this coming season.

Here are our best picks.

MILITARY

A seasonal classic. Our favourites this season come from Chloé who brought us double breasted coats with oversized lapels, longline silhouettes and a military must-have gold button. The military coat can be worn by all shapes - if you're slim, choose an above-the-knee cut and wear buttoned up. If you're more shapely, choose a longer, just over-the-knee length to skim hips and thighs and leave the buttons open.
