The camel coat

✢ A camel coat is a great buy, just stick to a simple style without embellishment – you can add that to the rest of your outfit.
✢ Wear with black for the most classic approach; the key to keeping it modern is with your accessories
– a round bag and patent nude heels up the ante.
✢ Make sure the weight of your coat isn’t too flimsy – a heavier material will sit better and look more expensive. Coat, £119, sizes xs-xl, Zara.

“Wear it your way – add a cluster of brooches to the lapel, pop up your collar or add a belt. This coat could look different every year”
