River Island's Coat Collection

By Clairebelle @cbelleoftheball
Now that it is officially a wee bit chilly, and the leaves are turning and starting to fall, and Oxford Street have put up the Christmas lights, I think it's safe to say that autumn is here.
I love this time of year, it always feels so romantic - wrapping up warm, going for long walks and coming home to a cup of tea in front of a cosy fire...sigh...who needs summer eh??
With that in mind, and with my birthday being just over a week away (whoo hoo) I've been scouring some of  my favorite high street retailer's coat collections. A good coat is always so valuable, as it will be your friend for many winters to come - unless you are a fickle fashion follower and only go with what is on-trend that particular year. It's always best to go for something classic, with perhaps a touch of cool individual style, or a flavor of what is on trend that particular year. This season, it seems to be all about PU or leather details (especially the sleeves or pockets) faux fur collars and trims and military/boyfriend fits. All of these styles, if worn in classic colours - blacks, browns, khakis, camels etc, will work really well this year, next and beyond.
With that in mind, I headed to River Island, where you really can't go wrong, to check out what they had in the way of coats and jackets this year. I've put my favourites below and have even asked for one for my birthday...try to guess which one! If you like any of these, hurry up and snap them up soon, as the best styles tend to go before the real winter hits.
