Choose a Coat for Lucy Worsley

Britain, Dr Lucy Worsley needs you! The TV historian du jour has put a call out on her blog inviting the public to style her for her new series. The theme is 'Tudor magnificence' and she needs two dresses and a coat - which should be reasonably priced and available on the high street.

Now Tudor fashion calls up images of lace ruffs, velvet cloaks and an abundance of pearls - but I should say brocade and a touch of faux fur would fulfil the brief without going too far down the literal dressing path - she's not asked for a fancy dress costume!

My pick would be the Rhiannon coat from Hobbs, £269. No, not particularly Tudor per se, but the sage green shade and scarf detail would look great on screen.
