I always get really excited when it gets to autumn/winter, and I can really start thinking about what winter coats I want to wear. Although when the cold weather drops I then realise how much I really need the warm weather again, can’t win lol!! However right now I’m still in the excitement period, so I just wanted to share with you guys some of, what I think, are the key styles of coats for this season. With of course, you know I’ll be getting one of each :);
- The checked maxi coat
I loved the camel maxi coats we saw all over the high street last year, but this year its all about the checked maxi and I flipping love it, this version from Topshop is a little bit pricey at £125 but I honestly think that its worth it as you’ll we wearing it all season.
2. Coloured faux fur
No surprise on the fur coats for this season, but what I love about them this year is it is all about the colours. So not your average browns and muted creams, its all about pinks, blues, yellows. I actually have the above pink version from Topshop, and its so insanely warm, plus I don’t think its a bad price at £79.
3. The aviator
Again I know we saw this style last year, but I think last year veered more towards the faux suede style, where as this year we are looking more of the faux leather styles, which I love so much more. The distinction between the faux leather and the fur is so much easier to see, rather than with the faux suede (if you can understand what I am going on about!). I love this version from Zara however there are so many cheaper versions on sites such as New Look, PLT and Missguided that are just as nice.
4. Borg/sherling coat
So to my last (and definitely not final, I could go on all day) pick of this seasons coats is the sherling/borg coat. I loveeeeee this style of coat, so warm and comfy, and again although there are lots of neutral coloured borg jackets around, I really am veering towards the coloured brighter versions. This red version from I am Gia a brand I have just discovered and am now obsessed with, is so perfect that I am definitely going to go out and buy this one, I love it!
