I can’t quite believe it either but the time is upon us, winter is coming! In my opinion, the best style investments you can make for autumn/winter, is a great coat and a pair of boots. So this month’s blog is all about the new season coats.
I’ve chosen a range of styles, with a nod to the latest AW trends, and I’ve also given you some savvy shopper options!
Let me know which ones you love and if you end up purchasing one be sure to share your selfies!
The Red Hot Vinyl Coat – red is a big trend for AW 18 and why not go all out with these vinyl coats. The Topshop beauty (left) is £79 and a trend double whammy with the croc print embossed.
When i think of wardrobe classics, the trench coat is without a doubt included. Macs/Trench coats are extremely flattering and a great staple in your wardrobe as they can be worn casually with trainers or dressed up with heels/boots. If you feel like pushing the beige boundary, try a brighter colour or check pattern.
It wouldn’t be much of a winter blog post if I didn’t include some fur (faux!). As much as i love a big faux fur coat, be careful if you are more of an apple shape as these coats in particular can often leave you looking top heavy, which for an apple is what you are trying to avoid.
Perhaps one of the most flattering styles, the long line coat is great for elongating the figure, and a belted version, in particular, brings in the waist.
Next we have, the puffer coat. I will always love this style because they really do keep you warm! However, be careful with the style you choose, as again you can end up looking boxy or top heavy. If you are top heavy, choose a fitted version with a belt, or longer length.
And last but not least, the anorak. Now, I’ve never really looked at an anorak as stylish, more for practical use. However, this season, designers have given it a revival and i have to admit, i’m impressed!
I hope you’ve been inspired by some of my Autumn/Winter coat selections. As always, my top styling tip is; wear it with confidence!
