Out of all the items in your wardrobe, nothing has a transformative power quite like a really good coat—they can make an outfit instantly feel more polished or considered, which is why choosing which winter coat to invest in can be a difficult decision. I find that the best coats are usually the classics in elevated colours and with timeless silhouettes, but looking for subtle detailing and tweaks can make these feel extra special and current. This week Emilia Clarke has a diary packed with interviews and red carpets as she is promoting her upcoming film Last Christmas, and her coat game has been particularly epic.
If you want to make coats look more expensive, we often advise going up a size or looking for a longer hemline or more oversize fit, especially when it comes to tailored wool styles. Emilia Clarke demonstrates this perfectly with her oversize calf-skimming camel coat that she wore over a pinstripe Dolce & Gabbana suit in New York yesterday. In fact, she's applied this 'bigger is better' rule to all of her outerwear this autumn, wearing a floor-length beige trench coat by Gabriella Hearst and sweeping trenches around New York.
