Our top 5 coats for Autumn!
There is no denying that Autumn is finally here, Winter is just around the corner and our beautiful Indian Summer is well and truly over. There is one way to really cheer yourself up on these grey days, as well as keeping warm and snug. It’s time to buy yourself a coat to see you through the Winter months. Deep down we all want to heed our Mum’s advice of wrapping up warm and keeping healthy, but not if we have to sacrifice our style for it. Here are 5 beautiful coats that combine practicality with perfect style:
1. Black Eudon Choi Leather coat from River Island
The Autumn/Winter collections were brimming with black leather, perfectly tailored and fitted to combine elegant sophistication with the rebellious nature of this coveted fabric. The wool that constitutes for the majority of the coat, teamed with the high neckline and long-length will ensure you stay warm and cosy. The sleek black colour will go with everything. The streamlined cut looks elegant and alluring, and the perfectly placed leather panels are bang on trend.
2. Burgundy Borg lined parka from Miss Selfridge
Cocoon shaped coats were all over the runways, and though you may not want to completely go for the figure swamping style like Philip Lim and co; a scaled down version is definitely a must have this Winter. This fabulous parka from Miss Selfridge not only boasts the cocoon look, but it also features the rich shade of burgundy that is one of this season’s top colours.
3. Dark grey handkerchief coat from Dorothy Perkins
Asymmetry is a key look this season, and this fabulous coat has plenty of it! The asymmetric collar, and the uneven hemlines make this a beautifully unique coat, as well as being perfectly on trend. Grey is a lovely soft colour that suits all skin tones, and will work beautifully with the rest of your wardrobe. If you are after something unusual and unique, then this coat is a great contender. Smart enough to wear for work, yet with enough personality to wear on night’s out and over the weekend. The perfect quirky versatile coat.
4. Burgundy PU sleeve mac from Miss Selfridge
This gorgeous mac benefits from so many key trends; the gorgeous burgundy shade, the leather-effect sleeves, the cinched in belted waist. It’s an absolute must have for fashionistas. Coats can completely swamp the figure, and make us look a lot heftier than we really are. However, this delightful coat emphasises the waist and keeps the legs on view, to really show off your assets. This coat is also available in a chic shade of stone.
5. Beige classic long mac from River Island
This classic sweeping long mac, is the perfect buy as it won’t date. Long macs are ideal for striding through the Autumn leaves in, especially if teamed with this season’s coveted over-the-knee boots. The classic style and colour mean it will never look faddish, and the lightweight style means you can wear it into Spring. I always like to have a couple of coats to see me through the Winter, as I love the variety. Buying a coat such as this one for your second Winter coat is your best bet, as it will last year after year.
