Dear Style Clinic

I am on the lookout for a new winter coat but there do seem to be so many different styles in the shops. I need an all-rounder. What do you suggest?

Where have all these coats come from this season? And so many styles, from chunky puffas and furry teddies to lighter duster coats and trenches, country-boho sheepskins and shearlings, loose tailored wrap coats, and the more casual long fluffy check shackets I am seeing everywhere.

But let us concentrat­e on finding an all-rounder, by which I assume you mean one that you can wear day to night, with leisurewea­r, jeans and over party outfits.

The top choice for this at the moment has to be a roomy, padded puffa and this longline black style here from John Lewis’s wellpriced Anyday range is ideal, whether you pop it on post-exercise class, or wear it to see you home in cosy comfort after a night on the tiles.

Marks & Spencer also has a wide collection of fantastic autumn/ winter puffas and padded coats, but my favourite is its cream hooded belted wrap coat, which brings achicedgeo­f glamour, whether you wear it casually or for something more dressy.

Finally, if you are looking for a true goanywhere coat, you could do no better than the smart parka-style Barbour Internatio­nal Aragon Jacket (it’s long, like a coat), which has a hood with detachable fur trim, comes in cream and black and is waterproof. A classic.
