There are many cuts and silhouettes to fit and flatter your shape this season – a few of us got together in this video to show off a few of our favourites, and we hope it inspires you to be bold and try something new.

In the video we show you quintessential British appeal with a classic trench coat or a mackintosh for petite frames. Alternatively, keep the elements at bay with the versatile and lightweight Kin parka or Ted Baker faux fur-trimmed parka, great for easy coverage and taller figures.

Introduce a smarter aesthetic with Phase Eight's collection of elegant coats. Their chic selection offers oversized shapes, feminine silhouetees and contemporary allure. Perfect for boardroom-to-bar dressing on all shapes and sizes.

Take your coat collection to retro-inspired heights with the cocoon shape. We love the Hobbs bubble, outsized-shaped coat in an eye-popping hue to stand out this autumn/winter. A more modest take comes with the Kin cocoon coat, creating a sophisticated look and punctuated with vintage appeal. Both share a comfortable, slightly slouchy feel. Showcase a more casual ensemble with the Jigsaw Llama coat. Sartorial in design, it has a relaxed fit, dropped double breast and short cut, and sits well on petite women.
