Have you been left wondering 'where has the summer gone!' then it's time to start shopping for your new favourite autumn jacket.

It happens every year, before we know it it's winter again and time to dust off those jumpers, jackets and coats that we feel like we've only just put away. But if you're looking to refresh your wardrobe with something new this year, a jacket is the perfect staple to add new life to a whole range of outfits.

Here's our pick of the best autumn jackets for women, online and in store...

Roxy Make It Happen - Shirt Style Coat for Women


View offer

The wool blend fabric of this shirt jacket, or shacket if you will, gives it a luxurious feel, while the longer (and flattering) mid thigh length keeps those unwanted chilly breezes out, without the weight of a heavier coat. Generous pockets offer plenty of room for essentials such as your phone, keys and face mask when popping out to the shops. Review: "The wardrobe essential I didn't know I was missing! I've only had this coat for a few days and already it has become my go-to. It's great for putting on for a dog walk with a pair of jeans and walking boots, and although it's casual it can easily be dressed up for a meal out. It's so comfortable to be in that I've even taken to wearing it around the house if I get a bit chilly!"

A denim jacket is the perfect accessory to see you through from summer to autumn. This versatile number goes great with summer dresses, through to jeans and a nice top. We love the darker denim of this jacket from White Stuff, great for the changing season. Layer up with a patterned dress, tights and a pair of ankle boots for an effortless look. Review: "Very comfortable to wear itu2019s well made and should last years. I normally have size 10 from Whitestuff although Iu2019m generally a 12. My friend bought this jacket in a 12 and I tried it on before buying. The 12 fitted perfectly so may come up small. Very pleased with this purchase."

The reversible pattern means you can simply turn inside out to choose the colour or subtle, hand-drawn print to suit your outfit. Review: "This jacket is lightweight but substantial - I don't like heavy jackets and as I live and walk on the Yorkshire East Coast a jumper is essential in the winter months. Just lovely! "

Ah, the iconic trench coat. Designed to see you through season after season, year after year, the trench is your Mon-to-Sun style saviour. We love this bright version by Hobbs. The classic details - double-breasted buttons, epaulettes and storm flaps - are contrasted by the subtly feminine fit and flare silhouette, for a coat which is made for the modern woman. Plus its crafted from showerproof fabric, so you won't get caught out by the British weather. Review: "Love the colour, itu2019s rare unlike the classic boring tan. I usually order my items in tall but the sleeve length on this was perfect."

Review: "I have been looking for a smart, light jacket for summer/autumn and this really fits the bill. I bought this in store in a rich green. The fabric is soft and drapey and comfortable to wear and the style is casual but smart. I know I'll get lots of wear out of this."
