We love the change in seasons. Yes the leaves are turning, yup there's great autumn food to tuck into and Christmas is not (too) far off, but the best thing about autumn is choosing our winter wardrobes.
On our must-have list right now? Number one is without a doubt the perfect winter coat. It's that item which, when you get it right, you can button up over absolutely anything and guarantee instant outfit transformation.
Till it's time to cosy up in a woollen coat, however, a leather jacket is an absolute must this season. Seen on every single celebrity who knows her style from Kate Moss to Cheryl Cole to Sienna Miller, it's worth getting this one right and watching it instantly update your look. Whether you're into tough-girl biker chick or a more glamorous vibe, be inspired by the stars and find a leather lovely for you.
Third? It's the winter boot conundrum. With so many must-have styles this season - shoeboots, ankle boots and thigh-highs are all on our lust list - our advice is to head to the high street and bag yourself a bargain, or three!
