Floody hell it’s cold…and wet…and really really grim outside. I’ve decided that the best thing to do is hibernate and look at pretty coats on the Internet (and eat my body weight in chocolate but that’s by the by). Here are my current coat crushes.
PINK COAT! PINK COAT! Remember ages ago when we were all shoving each other over in the street in order to get hold of a pink coat? Well, so do F&F who have cunningly brought out this stunning fit and flare number. It has lots of lovely details, such as that vintage inspired Peter Pan collar, and the price is very nice too.
This is my current top coat crush and comes courtesy of the ever bank balance raiding, Topshop. My only concern is that it won’t be fitted enough but, hey, after all that chocolate I’m eating perhaps it’ll do me a few favours.
As with most French Connection coats this one leaves me dribbling over my keyboard. How cute is this? I love everything about it and if it – by some miracle – comes under the £100 mark, might cause me some spending issues.
Pull & Bear is a brand that’s fairly new to me but I’m constantly impressed by the quality and affordability of their pieces. This coat is lovely and would go with pretty much anything. It also has huge pockets. Absolutely huge.
Burgundy is always a favourite with me so this coat has been on my radar for a little while. As is always the way with Sugarhill Boutique, there are some lovely little details that make this 60s swing coat extra special. Look at those adorable bows on the cuffs! Gorgeous.
There are two coats in this list that make me want to go somewhere super cold and look like THE most stylish lady in the land. This is the first. It just looks so dreamy and luxurious. It’s available from Kaliko and, in more sizes, at John Lewis.
You can nail two trends in one with this pastel tartan coat from New Look, you trendsetter, you. I think this would look really nice layered over some chunky knits.
Second stylish lady in the land klaxon! Isn’t this just begging to be worn ice-skating? Those furry cuffs are simply outrageous. Miss Selfridge, I applaud you.
