A good coat is the very core of any fashion girl's cold-weather wardrobe. Get the right coat, and fashion success in the cooler months will be yours. That sounds like a pressurising task, but the truth is our team is already narrowing down their extensive coat-shopping lists to secure The One, and some of us are finding that our top choices are already selling out. Take deputy editor Emma Spedding and her desire for a faux-fur Stand coat for example. Hers is a robe-style coat that has already gone (and all the other It coats are already selling out fast).
