Want the perfect winter coat and to tick one of this season's biggest trends in one go? No problem. Try this stylish coat, courtesy of River Island.

The coat already has quite a big Insta following, with bloggers like We Are Twinset, Style Devotee and How Do You Wear That having all worn it in the last couple of weeks alone.

And I can see why, it's got a classy check pattern that nails the British heritage trend, but has modern features like tie cuffs to keep it current. At £100 a pop, it's not too expensive for a winter coat either.

For a statement coat, it's surprisingly versatile too, as you can see from these Instagram pictures. You can wear it with ballet pumps, jeans and a Breton top, or a chunky knit with elegant tapered trousers.

She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
