winter warmers

Even though the weather is refusing to do what it’s supposed to do this time of year (18 degrees? How can I get all cosy and festive with that kind of temperature?), I’m prepared for the change of season with a grey marl military coat… i.e. not black. This is a big step for me. There are a lot of military, double-breasted coats with large shiny buttons on the high street, and I think they work equally well with both your Monday-Friday work uniform or for a more casual look at weekends. Other winter coat trends this season include bright colours (maybe next year I’ll be brave enough – it’s baby steps with the grey) and capes. Here is my pick of the high street:

{1. Miss Selfridge twill military coat – £45 / 2. USC military duffle coat – £49 / 3. Planet short military coat – £129 / 4. Dorothy Perkins pink swing coat – £69 / 5. Oasis funnel neck coat – £95 / 6. Miss Selfridge duffle coat – £57 / 7. Oasis check cape – £95 / 8. Oasis funnel neck cape – £95 / 9. Topshop borg collar cape – £65}

    I always veer toward a black coat as well. I did break down a couple of years ago and bought a white J.Crew coat which I love and it’s timeless. Capes, I’m still not sure about.
    Plus, we never get cold enough here to wear a coat too often! Which is unfortunate when you want to wear a cute one!

    Ooh, I really love the orange one. I have been wearing navy the last few years so think I am ready for the big step. Need some brightness to colour up at least some of my days.
