The Coat Edit

The Coat Edit

The cold weather has finally hit us…the misty fog that rolled across London last weekend made me reach for my tights, there’s no way I can sneak in another night out without them. Coats are a must in the morning, i’m sure the scarves and gloves will also be out in the next few weeks! So if you haven’t bought your new winter coat already, or you’ve got a few ideas let me add some more into the mix.

My friends will tell you I am a serious coat addict – but normally before i buy a new coat it’s because i’ve seen a similar style on somebody else. I don’t go “coat shopping”, I see loads of coats in pictures then when I’m out i’ll see one and have to buy I thought I would share with you my top coat inspiration pics (mostly sourced from Pinterest)…

The first style i’m longing for at the moment is Navy – whether its a duster coat, a pea coat, pinstripe’s take your pick…

I also really need want a new leather jacket that’s fitted but still vintage in style…

Camel is also a big colour infiltrating the shops at the moment, I bought myself a long pavement trailing camel coat last year and it is my go-to coat almost every day. I’m loving this long camel cardigan too, Primark have a fab range of long wool cardigans like this at the moment – you should take a look!

Velvet is also creeping back onto the high street and i have to say this fitted number would be amazing come December.

Green, Green, Green – I love Green! Green is my favourite colour and I am seriously trying to hunt down a calf length green coat, I spotted a girl on Oxford Street in the dream green coat and I have been lusting ever since. I’m also really excited the Heritage trend is back in – love a good tweed inspired coat.

Suede is still a biggie for me – I don’t see it leaving the high street anytime soon. I recently just bought one similar to the picture on the left, inspiration from blogger Pandora Sykes. But I think i could also do with a bomber style suede jacket maybe in black!

So there you have it – coatspiration. Sorry these aren’t links to actual coats, that would be amazing – try looking in general stores like Topshop, Zara, Urban Outfitters, & Other Stories, H&M – i’m sure they will have a few of these designs – but don’t forget to rummage around the charity and vintage shops too, you might just find something rather special.
