- My Top 3 Winter Coats...

With Winter upon us, I thought I'd show you my top 3 coats. Like many of you, I'm a huge fan of leather and duster jackets, but for this post I wanted to focus on cosy, thicker coats that will guard you from the cold. Read below to see the three types I think everyone should have in their wardrobe...

ONE: The Black Basic...
Think 'Little Black Dress' but the coat version. A black coat is a staple piece as it goes with absolutely everything! Mine's from Dorothy Perkins a few years ago.

TWO: The Parka...
A parka is perfect for those more casual days. Mine's recently from ASOS and is in the classic colour, it also has detachable lining for a lighter option.

THREE: The Other...
As well as the two previous basics, it's always good to have another option. I would say this is the place for a brighter coloured coat, but as you can see mine is grey. The faux fur is detachable so I prefer to wear it like this on more smarter days.

What is your Winter coat like? Let me know in the comments!

  23. Totally agree with this. Lovely coats! I have two similar styles for this winter...a big, cosy parka green jacket and a muddy brown, fur-trimmed fitted duffel style. As much as I'm not quite happy it's nearly winter already, at least I'll be prepped with these jackets! Danielle x
