Statement coats that will help you warm up in style

31st May, 2019

Temperatures have really started to drop of late so it’s put me in the mood to look for a brand new coat. And one of the best ways to really take a winter outfit in a fun, vibrant direction is with a statement coat. Whilst the classic shades such as black, navy and camel have their place, I think it’s always nice to have a coat with special touches whether it’s a striking pattern, interesting textures or great finishing details. Also given that you will have to wear a coat all the time for the next few months it pays to have one that lifts your ensemble and gives it a standout feature.

I’ve rounded up a few of my favourite coat styles for you to check out—from a bright splash of colour to a slightly different silhouette, there’s definitely plenty to fall in love with. Prepare to cosy up and get warm in style.

It’s time to update your winter coat—and I’ve rounded up my faves to get you started

1st June, 2018

It’s officially the first day of winter and if you haven’t already done it, I’m sure you’re thinking about updating your coat. And this season there’s definitely plenty of options to choose from.

I love shopping for coats as they’re such a statement piece for the cooler months that I always endeavour to find one that’s a bit out of the ordinary. It’s a personal mission to track one down that’s an elevated take on the classic winter coat whether it has interesting finishing details or is in a striking colour.

There’s also the matter of deciding which silhouette works for your wardrobe. I love a big woollen coat I can snuggle into but I’m also quite partial to a trench. I wore the above trench to Fashion Week and loved the beautiful embroidery on the back and also the fact it’s an versatile topper that can be worn over myriad outfits. If I’m going to be wearing something constantly over several weeks I like to know that it’s also ultra wearable and is quite chameleonic in nature in that it can easily be worn to several different occasions or settings. Also, it goes without saying that it has to keep me toasty and warm on those days when temperatures drop.

It’s time to up your coat game. Shop my top winter coat picks below.

What I Wore: The Classic Coat

8th August, 2017

The perfect neutral winter coat has been on my wish list for awhile. Finding one with just the right colour, cut, and finishing details is all important to me so when it all perfectly comes together in the form of a double-breasted coat in just the right shade I had to snap it up! There are key investment pieces in my wardrobe and a gorgeous winter topper definitely falls into that category. I think every girl should own at least one versatile coat, of the best quality she can afford, that can work with myriad looks and will last for years to come. I can see this Chloe number having many outings as its camel tone makes it so easy to pair with virtually any outfit. For this particular ensemble I wanted to play with elements of light and shade so I opted for bold accessories in dark shades to really allow the neutral hue to pop.
