Autumn Winter 2023 Outerwear

The catwalks had everything from hourglass, tailored cuts, bold and muted tones, animal prints and classic trenches. However, if you are going to make one purchase this season then I would suggest a long black wool coat if you don’t already own one. I’ve pulled together some key shapes for the season and how to style them to give you some inspiration.

Black Wool Coat

Tove, Alexander McQueen, Victoria Beckham, Givenchy, Ferragamo, Prada

Very much a key item for the season. Ensure that it is a nice long length coat to get the full catwalk inspiration. There are many options available with single or double breasted, belted to create the hourglass silhouette or wide shoulders for the boxy, masculine look, so choose the one that suits your style.

Black double breasted coat, Mango, £199.99

Yellow knitted jumper, Whistles, £55

Fill-trimmed denim shirt, H&M, £27.99

Blue straight leg jean, Hush, £79

Black chunky soled boots, Dune, £160

Houndstooth lambswool blanket scarf, tbco, £89

Yellow quilted crossbody bag, Katie Loxton, £23.99

Statement Bold Coat

Valentino, Aeron, Jil Sander, Ahluwalia, Stella McCartney

There were chic, colourful coats across the catwalks this season. So choose your favourite colour and make that statement this autumn.

Red coat, Mint Velvet, £183

Grey sweat top, Arket, £47

Black wide leg jeans, M&S, £35

Converse high tops, Schuh, £60

Black swing crossbody bag, Cos, £99

Red rib knit beanie, Arket, £27

Sunglasses, H&M, £18.99

Animal Print Coat

Rotate, Nya X Philipp Plein, Stella McCartney, Saks Potts, Michael Kors

This is a surprisingly versatile option which will give your outfit a fun edge. An animal coat can be dressed up with heels for the evening but will equally look great paired with trainers for a more casual look. I've styled this Boden coat in a more workwear way, which is another option.

Animal print coat, Boden, £260

Black merino wool turtleneck jumper, Cos, £45

Black cigarette trouser, M&S, £22.50

Black leather belt, Saint & Sofia, £79

Loafers, & Other Stories, £110

Croc-effect flap bag, Mango, £49.99


Gucci, Fendi, Gestuz, Dries Van Noten, Bottega Veneta

I mentioned this in my wardrobe staples post a few weeks ago. This is a great investment buy that will see you through the early stages of autumn layered with chunky knitwear and then again in early spring when the weather starts to warm up again. A timeless piece of outwear that will never date.

Trench coat, John Lewis, £125

Chunky stripe rollneck, & Other Stories, £95

Black faux leather leggings, Commando, £99

V2K Nike trainers, £145

Hoop earrings, Missoma, £89

Silver studded leather bag, Jigaw, £170

Nike socks, £13.95


Max Mara, Chloe, Hermes, Max Mara

Softer than the heavy puffers from previous seasons and in soft, muted tones, a quilted coat is the ultimate layering essential.

Khaki quilted coat, Mango, £99.99

Pink crew neck jumper, AND/OR, £65

Grey straight leg jean, River Island, £45

Leather shoulder bag, Mint Velvet, £139

Velvet ballet pump, Mango, £45.99

Paris baseball cap, Anine Bing, £62
