It’s that time of year again (cue excitable scream) – yes, it’s autumn and that means cosy nights in, hot chocolates and of course, winter clothing. It’s easily my favourite time of year (I know, original), but I just can’t get enough of the brightly coloured leaves, dark evenings and frosty mornings. Since the clocks turned back last weekend, I thought I’d get into the spirit of things and write about my favourite autumn coats.
The Trench Coat
You’ve gotta love a trench coat! Living in England, it’s pretty much an essential to have a waterproof jacket as a part of your wardrobe.
Mine is from M&S and I don’t wear it an awful lot throughout the year, until it comes to autumn. I like how versatile it is – the beige colour means I can pretty much wear anything with it and I can wear it buttoned or not.
I love my lil pink jacket from Dorothy Perkins. Although not the warmest, it goes great with a thick scarf and it’s perfect for those sunnier autumn days.
As it’s a pastel colour, I tend to dress in simple, monochrome shades for the rest of my outfit. I always wear this jacket unzipped (unless it’s really cold) with a pair of jeans and simple top.
I wear my pleather jacket all. the. time. It’s especially great for a night out – it’s surprisingly warm and goes with pretty much anything. I ordered it from Boohoo.com a couple of years ago, not expecting much, but I was really happy with the quality of it!
I really like the gold detailing and the ‘quilted’ effect – it adds a bit of texture and looks fab with a plain outfit.
As an avid lover of monochrome (if you haven’t already cottoned on), my grey tailored coat from New Look is a favourite! I wear it all the time to uni, and it’s great to just throw on for a trip into town. I also love how it can be dressed up, too – it’d look great with a dress and heeled boots.
It doesn’t have a zip but has two grey, marble-effect buttons. I rarely do them up, though, instead just draping a thick scarf over the top for those really chilly days!
This blog post was a bit of a trial, really! I’ve not posted any fashion-related content before, so was just having a go! But I’ve enjoyed it, and I’d like to thank the lovely Megg for helping me with the photographs – you should check out her Instagram!
