Wool is, of course, a winter staple, and can be seen in ever-present anthracite, marine, chocolate and loden green. Flannel wool is the winner this season, followed by more precious wools and cashmere in designer collections. Look out for woolly skirts, trousers, suits and coats.
This Burberry model will suit all women, provided that it's interpreted and worn according to their own fashion codes.
We like: it's sturdy, slightly military in cut, the iron grey colour is a winter classic.
Anthracite trench - Thomas Burberry: around £190 (leather bag: around £185, skinny jeans: around £115)
