Let's face it - summer 2021 never really showed up and, before we could blink, darker evenings arrived, meaning your new-season coat has been getting a lot of use over the past few months. But if you haven't yet found 'the one', now's the time to double down. Because with temperatures on the down - and searches for winter coats on the rise (according to Google) - there's no time like the present to buy that cover-up you've had your eye on since last year. But what styles should you be bookmarking?

Championed by Gabriela Hearst and Bottega Veneta, the leather (or faux-leather) trench is big news, with or without a faux-fur trim. And leopard print, once again, remains a wardrobe staple. From Dior to No21, the new leopard is boxy and structured – Next's spotted number is a particularly great option on the high street.

A lot of the most popular coats for this season are, happily, practical parkas, quilted coats and puffer styles that promise to keep us snug, which were big news at Jacquemus, Celine and Raf Simons. As a result, warmth and practicality are reigning supreme in the coat stakes. We're talking fleece-lined, water-repellent puffer jackets to keep you warm and dry. Although, naturally that doesn't mean we need to sacrifice style.

Of course, with a new season well under way that means some of our favourite brands are dropping their autumn offerings and with that comes an excellent array of high street hits, with the high street price tag, from Weekday, Mango, Arket and more. A standout fave? This oversized quilted coat from & Other Stories. And don't forget to check out the ever-popular pink M&S number - a personal favourite of Holly Willoughby.

Classic Max Mara-style wrap coats or a staple trench coat are guaranteed to be a wardrobe go-to throughout the season and beyond. Go for luxe-looking camels and rich browns for a timeless style that will truly last.
