If you're keen to give your capsule wardrobe an instant update for the colder days ahead, put a new coat silhouette at the top of your wish list.

To help you cut through the deluge of styles available, Red's Shopping Editor Jodie Dunworth has found the five trends that are sure to raise your coat game this season. No matter the forecast (probably pretty dire, let's face it), we’ve got both chic and cosy covered.

Coat trend: Monochrome coats

Make bold moves with sophisticated cuts, sharp shoulders and clean lines all within a refined palette. Choosing monochrome needn't be so black and white when you play around with light and shade combinations and fabrics; heavy-duty wool and leather mixed with indulgent velvet and sheer mesh will create interesting textural depth.

Coat trend: Preppy coats

Dig out your notebooks: the collegiate trend is taking us back to school with toggle-trimmed duffle coats and boxy pea coats. A lesson in effortless layering, throw over off-duty jeans and hoodies and instantly elevate with preppy accessories; these coats go straight to the top of the class (and our shopping list).

Coat trend: Statement coats

Introduce a statement coat into your wardrobe for a flash of everyday glamour with these showstoppers. Faux fur, animal prints and velvet aren’t just for party season, so think nothing of draping them over cargo pants, silky slip dresses and knitted vests for that high-low mix.

Coat trend: Checked coats

Plaid, check and dogtooth get a subtle injection of colour for a slightly rebellious take on heritage coats. Wear with everything including leather trousers, floral skirts and polka dot blouses; this is ‘anything goes’ dressing with rock’n’roll attitude, or just to bring a fresh autumnal twist to a great pair of flared jeans.

Coat trend: Neutral coats

Take a neutral stance and warm up winter days with toffee, cappuccino and almond tones. Get all wrapped up over relaxed suiting separates; these cocoon coats with matchy-matchy cinching belts and built in scarves are sure to bring that fuzzy feeling.
