Brrrr it would appear it’s time to layer up, as despite still being Autumn, the temperature seems to have suddenly dropped! Never fear though, as it gives us the perfect opportunity to wrap up warm and keep toasty in this season’s must-have winter coats! We’ve searched high and low for our favourites, and we think these Yumi.co.uk lovelies are two of the best that AW15 has to offer. With check patterns and faux fur galore, both coats are effortlessly on trend and are just so blooming cosy. Just look how snug we are! Mmmm, snug.

I (Victoria) am wearing the Oversized Cheversizedck coat*, which just had to be mine as I am obsessed with all things yellow and grey. I was a little worried about it’s loose shape, as whenever I’ve tried on oversized coats before I’ve felt swamped, but I’ve had so many compliments about this one. The colours are much more vivid IRL, and it’s honestly the warmest thing I’ve ever worn. It’s definitely going to see me through winter. Underneath my woolly cocoon, I’m wearing the jazzy Contrast Stripe Shirt Dress*. I love it, it’s like all of the colours got together for a groovy abstract bender. There is no better way to compliment any dress and coat combo than with a pair of classic brown Chelsea Boots*, so that’s exactly what I did.

Jo’s rocking the lush Faux Fur Collar Swing Coat*, in a beautiful shade of blue. Unfortunately, the smaller sizes are currently sold out, but don’t feel blue, it’s also available in black! Hooray! I love the coat’s 1960’s inspired shape and think it looks perfect with tan lace up boots and the Building Block Day Dress*, which is a dress we’ve had our eyes on since Double Thumbs Dresses #60. The apartment print features babies in prams, dogs, cats, bunting, and even teeny tiny satellite dishes! It’s definitely in the running for AW15’s ‘Best Novelty Dress’. A highly coveted accolade.

Putting the Win in Winter: Coats *Pink Special*

PINK COAT PINK COAT PINK COAT. All people keep banging on about at the moment is pink coats.  And now, well, so am I….because hubba bubba aren’t they lovely?  I have now officially spent the better part of my Tuesday wondering how I’ve ever lived without one before! So thank you, internet, for your pink pandering has resulted in some serious style crushing on a number of sickeningly sweet candy coloured creations. I have, therefore, put together my favourite sugar coat-ed offerings for your reading pleasure.

Vintage Style Cocoon Coat £110 from ASOS

This ASOS coat has been highly anticipated by the general coat buying public since it first appeared in their magazine a while back. It finally arrived online this week which sparked an internet frenzy, no really, which has resulted in a lot of the sizes going straight out of stock! In fairness it does look lovely and I am sure those nice folks at ASOS will be replenishing sizes so don’t be too down-hearted if it looks as though you’ve missed out.

Notch Lapel Oversized Duster Coat £85 from Marks and Spencers

Another pink coat getting a lot of attention is this pretty Marks & Spencers affair. So much attention in fact, that it also sold out the second it hit stores at the start of the month. Fear not though, pink lovers, as they restocked it today.

Short Woollen Overcoat £79.99 from Zara

Another pretty effort, this time from Zara who have gone for a lovely soft, shorter number. This one is unmistakably baby pink but could definitely be toughened up with some dark accessories. Maybe even some leather if you’re game. Continue reading Putting the Win in Winter: Coats *Pink Special*

Putting the Win in Winter: Coats

Hey Hemsters,

If you are anything like us, you have spent the past week despairing at the weather. You leave the house in your big coat, tights, and boots and by lunchtime you are kicking yourself for not packing your sunglasses as you sweat uncomfortably at the bus stop. Or maybe that’s just us. Picking the correct coat for the day ahead is currently nothing short of traumatic (overstatement?) but one thing is for sure, coats are back! Hooray! There are a lot of lovely ones appearing on the high-street at the moment so we have gathered together our favs!

Red Bow Coat £79 from Miss Selfridge

We tweeted about this little beauty a couple of weeks ago! Look at those bows! NEED.

Dog Quilt Bomber Jacket £50 from Topshop

It probably won’t see you through those cold winter months but this dog print jacket will certainly look pretty darn cool in the meantime.

Coat with Gathering on the Shoulder £99.99 from Zara

The future is bright after all and, if you believe the magazines, orange is set to be a big colour this season! This coat is sharp, chic and zesty.

Oversized Check Coat £75 from Next

Now THIS is a winter coat. We could quite happily hibernate in this snugly affair.
