These are not exactly your versatile, understated wardrobe essentials when it comes to outerwear, but coats have been such a huge story on the autumn/winter catwalks that they’re fast becoming the new way to accessorise. Like shoes and bags you’ll be needing more than one to indulgently colour clash with your wardrobe. Think wild art deco prints at Prada, to fairytale embellishments at Dolce Gabbana, patterned textures at Marni and gorgeous embroidery at Etro.

QUESTION: I have a leather jacket (black single breasted traditional blazer style) is this old fashioned or can it be worn somehow updated? Its a great throw on and quite warm on chilly days out.

ANSWER: I’m having real fashion envy hearing about your leather jacket. A great piece of leather is for a lifetime and of course it can be updated with a few modern pieces.

1. Jigsaw, Jeans now £44:– These straight leg jeans are great for balancing the proportions. They are much more forgiving than skinny jeans but have just as much style. Style with a slight wedge or chic ballet pumps.

2. Mint Velvet, Blouse £69:- A printed blouse will be great under your leather blazer. Tuck into jeans for a smarter to look or leave out for a casual day shopping:

3. Mint Velvet, Trousers £79:– Or why not let your trousers carry the print for a super modern look. The cropped fit will be great with the blazer, style with your favourite pumps:

4. H&M, Blouse £14.99:- This floaty ivory blouse will be gorgeous against the black leather and teamed with printed trousers. A loose top will soften the look for lunch with friends and more. SarahA x

If ever a lush forest was going to manifest itself into a bit of a fashion catwalk, then it would have to take its leaf from the Milan autumn/winter catwalks. From mossy muted tones, to edible olive shades to deep dark greens, the colour is really working its spectrum in Milan this week.
