"Couture-inspired, these suit separates look smart together but apart they'll work really hard in your wardrobe.

Pair the jacket with jeans or style the skirt with an oversized cashmere jumper - both easy autumn looks."

"Forget coat trends! Look for a timeless wool design in a shape that flatters your body – that's what makes the best winter coat.

If it's slightly roomy to layer over an oversized knit, even better. Relaxed yet finely knitted, this one is a great transitional piece."

"I love this look. A tan wrap coat with a soft leather biker jacket underneath – these are pieces you'll wear again and again.

Not forgetting these gorgeous ankle boots, perfect with bootcut jeans. Yes, bootcuts are back and better than ever!"

As you can see, Kat's edit answers dilemmas such as 'What to wear with a winter coat?' and 'How to wear boots with jeans?'. Yet also proves that by making carefully considered purchases, the best coats, knits and boots will stand you in good stead for the colder months and become enduring outfit builders.
