Big A/W Guide: The Coat

The darkness is falling… and unfortunately so is the rain. Being unable to do my make up with natural light in the mornings, is one of the sad pitfalls of nearing the end of the year. Along with with the cold nights, the red hands & the chattering of teeth. So it seems we need jackets…and coats, and cosy things to wear underneath them. So here is the beginning of a big ol’ guide for stocking up your wardrobe with nice big warm things, oh and they’re also pretty nice too. Starting with…

THE COAT.

So you may have a numerous amount of coats, but do you have The Coat? The coat that you can wear with anything, the coat that you know is going to look good. The coat. Well, if you don’t, you’re not alone, neither do I. But after looking at this trusty selection, you may  just find your other half for the rest of the year.

Zara have the most immense clothing at the moment, but the best has to be their coats. I was almost falling off my chair, my christmases all just came at once. Well, 5 did.

Topshop are the old favourites, almost always have what you’re looking for, and the moment you step in the shop, you would like to own it. Every year they do of the greatest selection of coats, here’s what they’ve provided this year…

With H&M only recently making it able to shop and browse online, this is their MOtrend debut. But, it’s not all that great, their coats aren’t shockingly horrible, but they definitley aren’t the best. There isn’t a great selection, but if you look hard enough you might be able to find a gem..

I’ve always seen River Island as a little bit Katie Price, especially as it was once quoted it was her favourite shop :/ But, I have recently chosen to ignore my gut instinct and have a proper look, not a glance. I was pleasantly surprised, as I wasn’t greeted with what I expected…and the coats? not too shabby…

Whistles is slowly creeping up my list of favourite shops. There is hardly a thing I dislike in that shop. And they just happen to have really really lovely coats, that cape’s a favourite.

Urban Outfitters, another firm favourite. They have the perfect causal coats, good for when you don’t want to look too…’coaty’.

Aaaand finally, we have online amazingness Asos. The site where everything is, and having to go through all their coats was my definitely a pleasure. I love these coats. A lot.

New Autumn Favourites

Ok, let’s face it, summer is over. The sun is minimal, the coursework is not, everyone’s talking about coats and boots, so I reckon we should just move on. Autumn, afterall, is one of my favourite seasons, I love the colours, the wrapping up, the having to not shave your legs as often, it’s all good. Aaand, wrapping up means more clothes which means you need more, if you get my drift. There is always a reason for new stuff. So anyway, I have happily complied a selection of my favourite items for the new season:

The Vintage Tee

The ‘shorts-and-a-tee’ outfit is one of the easiest options in summer – it doesn’t have the blow-up potential of a skirt or dress plus it’s comfy and (dare I say it) practical. The current Urban Outfitters sale makes now a great time to pick up a few quirky / vintage tees to see you through summer…

 (all Urban Outfitters, £9.99)

If you can’t find what you want in the UO sale, here are some alternatives:

A Wonderfully British Summer

Well, England might be out of the World Cup (lets not talk about it) but we are certainly not having a typically English Summer. The sun is out and this, my friends, can only mean one thing; we can have a immensely amazing British summer, Pimms and strawberries, picnics on Primrose Hill, Bike rides in Richmond park, the list is actually endless. So what better way to have a quintessentially English summer than to look the part….

Now all you need is a gingham picnic blanket and a wicker basket….

S/S 10 Trends: Let’s Get Physical

A new season calls for new trends, and Spring/Summer is calling us to strap on our trainers, pull on the spandex and whip out the headband. Physicality was all over the catwalk from Alexander Wang to Hermes to Julien McDonald.

 From top: Julien McDonald, Hermes, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schuler

All were clearly inspired by sport and physicality, Tennis at Hermes, Surfing at Proenza Schouler. But like me, you may not be able to squeeze a little bit of designer intoyour wardrobe becuase of ummmm let’s say insufficent funds, so here are a few high street alternatives….
