Winter is definitely here and you may well be thinking of getting a new coat or two. One worth looking at is this new addition at Peacocks. It's a double breasted 60s-style collarless coat. While that may seem impractical at this time of year, you can couple it up with your favourite scarf and not worry about it fighting for space around your neck.
When it comes to Winterwear, year after year the high street opts for retro influence to create lasting style in coats and jackets. This Taped Dolly Coat from Dorothy Perkins is a perfectly stylish example, using a sixties influence to create an everyday coat with great style.
If you are chasing a classic look without paying out big cash, this Uniqlo double-breasted trench coat could be for you.
Available in three colours and with one eye on the autumnal weather, this trench has all the details you would expect, including double-breasted fastening, epaulettes, belted cuffs and a belted waist. Looks to be a quilted lining in there too, which you might appreciate when it gets a little chilly.
£109.90 is the asking price online.

Modern reinterpretations of the classic trench coat often opt for a utilitarian style, choosing traditional and sharp style elements for impact. If you favour a cutesier tone to your retro style, this Plaid Natasha Trench from Fred Flare is the ideal sixties-inspired choice.
The structure of the coat is basic and chic, with an empire line and double breasted buttons. It's the colour palette, however, that speaks of mid-sixties looks, with a yellow plaid and bubblegum pink buttons to finish. The overall look has just enough mod style to create a stylish everyday retro item.
