UK: Skin Chick

Look around any of the big department stores this autumn and you'll see a vast selection of sheepskin, shearling and suede. Designers went mad for these luxury fabrics, regardless of the fact that they aren't the least bit practical for the usual wet, wet and wetter British winters. At MaxMara blue suede belted coats were the order of the day, and Salvatore Ferragamo showed delicately cut, honey-coloured sheepskin swing coats.

The best coats were cut from just one piece of sheepskin hide, which helps to give a long, lean and tailored look. As the overall feel is more rustic than urban, add a suede skirt for extra luxury. At Celine rustic merged with lumberjack, and long ankle-length coats were styled with check shirts.

But, whatever look you go for - if you make sheepskin or suede your fabric of choice, its going to be an expensive winter. Nonetheless it is worth investing - go too cheap and somebody might mistake you for Del Boy's younger sister.
