Autumn is, by far, my favourite season. I love wearing boots, knitted jumpers and dresses with tights and I love all the autumnal colours in the shops at the moment. It's around this time of year that my coat obsession begins - the way I see it, during autumn/winter, most people only see your coat. You could have a lovely outfit on and if you throw an old coat over the top, it's hidden away. My theory is that, in Autumn, 75% of your outfit is your coat, and I use this to justify devoting 100% of my time to shopping for them.
Here's some of the coats and jackets that have made it to my (ever-growing) coat wishlist.
Dark Rust Coat | Oversized Flight Jacket | Khaki Peacoat | Grey Wool Coat | Floral Trench Coat
Suede Trench Coat | Mustard Duster Coat | Faux Fur Gilet
I love a coat in a statement colour so this rust boyfriend coat and this mustard duster coat are on my list without question. These are the kind of coats that make an outfit and if you're sticking to the usual autumnal colour palette, they should still go with most things in your wardrobe. And if we're talking about statement colours, then we need to discuss this floral print trench - how amazing is this? I was a bit unsure of it when I saw it in the shop, but when I saw how they've styled it on the site, I fell in love.
As you probably saw from my last post, I love suede more than kanye loves kanye. But this suede trench takes things to a whole new level. It's probably unhealthy to love a coat as much as I love this. I can't see it lasting long in the shops before it's sold out though, especially since they have the gorgeous Cara Delevingne modelling it in their advert, but I'm going to save up for it anyway and if luck is on my side, it'll be mine!
So what do you think - which one's your favourite?
