If I had to pick my favourite thing about the Winter Season, it would have to be buying a new coat for the cold weather! I absolutely love coats, not only do they keep you snug and warm, but they can often make an outfit!
I usually seem to find my favourite coats from Miss Selfridge and this year is no different! For Autumn Weather, I adore a trench coat, it’s such a vintage style and I love how it’s fitted. However, as beautiful as trench coats are, they aren’t very suitable for classic British Winter Weather, which is why my new coat is Faux Fur Collar Button style.
Last year, I bought a very similar one from Miss Selfridge, but it was in a navy shade. I’ve been after a red coat for so long and I finally have one! The shade is more burgundy, but I think it’s just the perfect colour for Winter. The black faux fur collar looks so lovely with the burgundy fabric of the coat and I just adore the buttons, they add such a lovely detail to the overall style. Not only is the coat beautiful to look at, but it keeps you warm, has side pockets and makes you feel ever so cosy!
The only criticisms I can make of the coat is that it doesn’t have a belt, that’s just my personal preference however and the coat still fits very nicely. Also, if you buy this coat you’ll always have to make sure you have an umbrella handy as it doesn’t have a hood. However, you can always turn the collars up for extra warmth which is always a bonus! The coat was a pretty good bargain at only £69, which is definitely worth the price as you can tell it’s a quality product. What’s even better is it’s now in the sale for £55, so get it while you can and at an even better price!
For today I’m wearing a little black dress which also happens to be from Miss Selfridge! It’s a Peter Pan Collar Style dress, fitted at the waist and flares out after, so perfect for any of you who love the vintage style as much as I do! I love the details on the back, the double button for the collar and the silver zip, the back of the dress is just as pretty as the front. The striped pattern and the dress lining gives the style even more structure in a subtle way.
