One of the best things about autumn and winter is the chance to wrap up warm in an array of cosy coats, knits and scarves for the next six (more likely eight) months. But we sometimes have the struggle of do we choose warmth or do we choose style? Luckily for us, we don't have to worry about that this season - here is my coat guide for aw16...
