The Art of Layering with Karen Millen

As the temperature drops and the weather fluctuates, stylish wardrobes call for equal parts form and function, and a strong layering game. Whether it's perfecting a cosy trench-and-knit combo, or marrying a tailored coat with this season's hero knit, here are the key cool-weather pieces that will have you seamlessly transcending the change of season. With the sale now on, it's the perfect opportunity to make sure you're covered for  winter.

A classic long-line trench is sophisticated enough to team with 9-to-5 tailoring and versatile enough to work with your weekend wardrobe. Opt for this season's A-line cut for a fresh alternative.

If you prefer to take a subtle approach to your coat closet, then this minimal tailored coat is for you. Its appeal lies in the long-line hem, flattering waist-belt and chic oversized pockets.

A fresh alternative to a classic coat, there's no outerwear silhouette more dramatic than a flowing wrap coat - especially when it's finished with luxe faux leather piping.

There's something undeniably glamorous about a faux-fur coat, especially when it's covered in eye-catching leopard spots. Bracelet-length sleeves and a clean collarless silhouette keep things new.
