Now that winter is arriving coat/jacket collections are appearing within show windows and I can tell you now that I like far too many already. Something that really annoys me about coats/jackets is the price because it limits to me only buying one or two per year which is a shame because the amount of coats that I love are endless.
So far this season, I have found three that I absolutely adore. I hopefully will purchase one out of the three but I haven't decided which one I like the most yet. Have you found many that you like?
1. Zip Up Check Coat - Link
This navy beauty is from Miss Selfridge, (did you guess that there would be an item from there on this wishlist too?) This jacket features a cream fur collar, a simplistic tartan inspired bodice and a zip; the materials used were nylon, viscose, acrylic, wool and polyester. I haven't really gotten into the tartan trend yet so this would be my personal beginning if I went for this one. I dislike the typical tartan in red but it looks so different on a jacket and I actually really like the look.
2. Double Breasted Reefer Coat - Link
This double breasted reefer coat, from Warehouse, is constructed out of tailored fabric. This coat features metallic hardware with button fastenings; and flap side pockets with zip pockets.This fully-lined jacket features an over-sized collar and zip fastenings at the cuff. This smart coat comes in neutral or black - I prefer it in neutral. I feel as if I'd be able to get away with wearing it on the colder days at the beginning of spring. Having a light colour will be different to sticking to the basic dark winter tones. This coat is currently in the sale from £95.00 to £71.00. I feel like it's now a reasonable price and I've got to say it's a likely candidate for my collection of coats. I think I can position this one as my favourite out of the three. I guess it's just so different to what everyone seems to be wearing at the moment, I've seen a lot of black around so perhaps something different will be nice.
3. Fur Collar Textured Biker Jacket - Link
This black coat from Topshop is already really popular in my area which slightly puts me off this coat just because I get so uncomfortable and self conscious when I see someone else in the same item of clothing as me - I don't know if I'm the only one who gets this but I do and it sucks. This biker jacket features a removable fur collar and zip sleeve detail. I've heard that this coat is really warm which is always good for the awfully cold weather that we get here in England.
One thing that I've realized from my little window shopping/coat-spree is that I'm really into fur on jackets this year. I think it makes jackets look so cosy and comfortable. Comfort is one of the main things I look for in a coat so anything that feels horrible on is a definite no no.
What style of jackets are you into this year? Anything new? I'd love to hear about it!
