The look: Grid-like patterns in bright, bold colours – like the forest green and candy pink coats worn by these style stars above.

Why it’s in: Apart from being instant mood-lifters, a graphic coat that’s paired with neutral shades like navy or beige makes it stand out immediately. For folks who typically only favour monochrome colours, this is a good styling trick to pull out of the closet.

This season’s interpretations: Marni’s blue-and-red striped coat gave off a preppy air (left), and Miu Miu’s boxy, grid-patterned coat came studded with little red flowers, which gave it a playful, schoolgirl feel (right).

The look: A floral-printed coat is a sure-fire way to lend a feminine touch to any outfit, whether it’s palm leaf-inspired or covered with colourful lilies. And it provides added texture to an otherwise simple look too.

Why it’s in: Who can say no to Spring influences amidst a bleak winter? The floral-printed coat is a great way to add a fun spin to your outfit – even when the weather dictates otherwise.

The look: From a collage-esque design full of women’s faces to one that looks like it has a child’s drawings on them, the abstract coat is equal parts edgy and sophisticated.

Why it’s in: Why wouldn’t it be? It’s the kind of coat you would reach for if you didn’t want to seem too flamboyant, but still want to push the envelope a little further. So yes, you’ll definitely score extra sartorial points for even daring to try wearing one out.
