Nothing in your wardrobe has transformative power quite like a really good coat. The right coat doesn't just keep you warm over the next few months; it also impacts every one of your outfits. Now that it's full-blown coat season, every time I get on the Tube or have a stroll at lunch, I see a parade of rather fabulous jackets and coats. There are five styles, in particular, that I've noticed London fashion girls leaning on—and all of them are practical investments that will have a prized space on your coat rack for years and years.

Trending styles this year include flannel lumberjack-style boxy jackets (very Stranger Things) and upgraded trench coats with patchwork print detailing. Keep scrolling to see—and shop—the five coat trends taking over London this month.
