Now that autumn is slowly creeping in, my hunt for the perfect winter coat is well and truly on. Tailored coats with a hint of masculinity are quite possibly my favourite style; I love the smart look that they have, as well as the fact that it can basically just become your outfit and still look really good. 

A camel coat is always a good one to invest in - I've had one from Zara for quite a few years but now it's totally knackered so I'm looking for a suitable replacement. This one from River Island is  a strong contender - I love the shape and the cut, plus the addition of block colours and zip detail just makes it that little bit more special.
