For most people, the purchase of a winter coat is their heftiest fashion investment of the year. It dwarfs every other purchase and will define your daily style for at least the next six months.

Whether you're opting for high-street or high-end, it's worth pushing the boat out. Just break it down into price per wear and it becomes easy to justify cracking into that piggy bank.

Burberry Prorsum make it their business to know good coats. Collarless, cocoon, belted, bell sleeve or check, they had a huge variety at their AW11 show.

This orange offering is the perfect style to opt for from the high street; less cash commitment means you can move on after one or two seasons.

Pair with animal print and platform loafers for a retro finish.
