Though mod look fashion may be the sixties inspiration which dominates our high streets, there's a huge amount of inspiration available from across the Atlantic from the decade. This Leopard Coat from ASOS is ideal for tapping into that grittier New York style, exemplified by Andy Warhol's factory girls.
While we're all still trying to make the most of the occasional glimpses of Summer time, fashion's mainstream is wasting no time in looking forward. As ever, the beginnings of the new season are available early, with Autumnal pieces like this Peggy Faux Fur Collar Coat from Oasis offering a glimpse great of things to come.
The pale camel wool helps to create a heritage feel to the main piece, with double breasted fastening and militaristic shoulders lending a cool mid-sixties feel. The retro look is given some extra oomph by the faux fur collar, allowing for that trashy glam of stars like Edie Sedgwick to come through.
It's available from Oasis for £100.
Full faux fur coats have been seen everywhere across the high street this Winter, and while they're a great retro look, they can be too overwhelming for some. If you want to tap into that trashy glamour without going all out, this Faux Fur Frock Coat from Miss Selfridge could be ideal.
Using the fur as a generous trim at the collar and cuffs, the coat combines classic tailoring with decadent textures. The full skirt of the coat adds symmetry to the large collar, while slim sleeves keep the silhouette feminine. The end product is versatile enough to pair with a variety of retro looks, from Factory-girl glamour to seventies chic.
It's available now from Miss Selfridge for £80.
With faux fur coats all the rage once more on the high street, most designs have focused on a mid sixties look or earlier. If you're feeling braver in your vintage look apparel, this Melise Faux Fur Coat from Boohoo Pink taps into a later sixties look to bring something out of the ordinary.
The coat's oversized cut, along with longer fur fibres, creates a more extreme silhouette. Tapping into the decadently trashy aesthetic of Edie Sedgwick and Nico, this coat speaks of a later sixties retro appeal that's less often seen from mainstream brands.

Classic Paddington Bear-a-like duffle coats are always a worthwhile choice of retro outerwear, providing practicality and classic style all at once. There's always room for some variety, though, and with vintage looks like this Heart Duffle Coat from Miss Selfridge there's no compromise.
The peach-orange shade has an instantly mid-sixties look, along with the shortened a-line cut that's girly and dollish enough for a mod inspired style. The addition of faux fur in a rich cream shade adds some luxury to the coat, belying its High Street price tag, while bell sleeves are a cute touch.

With a wardrobe item as commonly worn as Winter coats and jackets, it's often hard to find the right balance between making a statement and wearing it with everything. This Tweed Coat from Oasis manages to do just that, with a healthy dose of retro style thrown in too.
The heritage style fabrics of both tweed and (faux) fur are a starting point which allows the departure from choices which are practical but dull. The construction of this coat, with its long skirt and belted waist, combines with the oversized collar to create a sumptuous seventies-look style that won't be going out of style any time soon.
