Yesssssss it’s coat season wahooo!!! Sorry, I get overexcited around this time of year. I love crisp autumn leaves, and layering up my clothes. Buying a new coat is a sure sign of the new season, and over the next month we are going to be featuring our favourite outerwear. I obviously get carried away and own way too many coats but in winter, they are a key part to building your outfit.
To get you from Autumn to next Spring I recommend that everyone invests in the following:
1. A printed coat (keep reading for the best of the leopard,)
2. A neutral coat (that can be dressed up or down)
3. A warm hooded waterproof(that can be thrown on when you are running out the door)
4. A coloured coat (that suits your skin tone and your wardrobe, but is a little bit more special than an everyday coat.)
We are both leopard lovers (who isn’t?!) and love how it adds something special to a really simple outfit, without needing to spend anytime thinking about what you are going to wear. I’ve gone for this Marks and Spencer version as I like the strong, bold print with long lapels. Sam has opted for this light weight metallic H&Mversion – it’s oversized and covers her bum. FYI it comes up big and Sam actually went down 2 sizes (she’s normally a 10 and went for a 6.)
