Now is the time when the nights draw in darker and become much chillier as we head into the festive season. Now that Londoners will be doing their socialising outdoors, it’s what’s on the outside that counts, and never before have coats or knitwear been so in fashion.

On Elizabeth Street in Belgravia, NRBY celebrate the easy, everyday style with their garments. Their Millie alpaca blend sweater will certainly help as you layer up against the cold. Over in Eccleston Yards, 50m is a luxury concept store that showcases pieces from emerging fashion designers for both men and women. The distressed Faux Shearling Jacket by Ka Wa Key is a great option.

For those who prefer the style of established designers look no further that Mayfair where Roland Mouret, whose flagship store is on Carlos Place, showcases designs adored by women all over the globe. The cornflower blue Elbury coat in double wool crepe is a luxurious addition to your winter wardrobe. Over on Duke Street, French Connection concept store has key winter items for both men and women. From the formal melton double breasted coat for men to the balia tweed belted coat for women.
