Winter coats

With the winter weather drawing in, it is now time to bring out that winter coat once again and wrap up warm. I have a taken a look at the variety of coats available to us on the high street and there really is an abundance of styles to suit all styles. 

I love this navy cape coat with tobacco piping and metallic buttons to give you a real military goes heritage vibe. Great over trousers and easy to wear over any chunky knit - perfect for pregnant ladies like my best bud!!

For a more fitted chic look go for this stunning faux fur collar wax jacket from Topshop which gives a very flattering feminine look.

After looking at all the coats available to me on the high street at the moment I am urging to hit the shops and buy a few different varieties to suit my different daily moods and styles. I have certainly spotted a few that will go on my Christmas list but don't forget to check out the likes of Primark as I have spotted a few cheaper versions of a number of these coats which will give you a variety of different looks for less!

Happy shopping : ) xxx
