1. The first coat is by Marni, is collarless and has got a fabulous little skinny belt that adds some sparkle to the coat. Doesn’t this look fabulous? I think this will work so well over your little sweater-jeans combo that you just know you want to wear. Alternatively, this looks so beautiful as a dress on its own too.

2. This second coat is also by Marni, and features a collarless round neck, shearling cuffs and a buckle belt that pulls it in. What a great coat to be running around town with! This would look so fabulous over those super skinny Acne jeans and your Stella McCartney cashmere sweater tunic and those Lanvin heels you’ve kept at the bottom of your wardrobe, no?

3. This third navy coat is by one of my favourite designers – none other than Marc Jacobs (although we don’t know what was going through his mind when he came up with THOSE Louis Vuitton atrocities last year). This has got a large collar and lapels, and leads to a single button fastening. It’s called a Shadow Coat, and deserves its name as this is a fabulous 3-D coat. It’s a work of art! The sleeves are short and capped, making it so major over a simple dress of any bright neon colour that was featured heavily in Prada Spring/Summer 07 – you see, it’s good to mix and match along the seasons!

4. Be the centre of attraction with this red Lanvin jacket and a belt and bell shaped sleeves. It’s so difficult to carry these sleeve-shape off. Here’s a tip. Those who are tall and of a slimmer build will have a much easier time carrying this off. The skinny black patent belt sits high on the waist and and bell sleeves reach the elbow. How do you wear this, otherwise, difficult to wear jacket? Simple, I say. Wear it with a simple T-shirt inside – by The Row, super skinny jeans by Ksubi and those Christian Louboutin black patent pumps to match the red soles to your new jacket.

5. Less is more with Derek Lam’s Hounds tooth trim bolero. An easy way to keep a little warmer when wearing your super chic party Alaia dress with those fabulous black Jimmy Choos still tucked away in its purple box.
