Make a statement...

...with your winter coat! 

A fabulous coat is a great investment, tres versatile and can easily be dressed up or down. Finding the perfect coat may take time and hunting efforts but is totally worth it ;p Keep in mind the many shapes to consider for fall whilst shopping, and choose what suits your outfits and outings best. Keep an eye for cocoon, defined, seamed, and loose cut coats. 

Cocoon coats are perfect for layering. Wear over a fitted outfit to balance it out. Opt for skinnies and a well fitted top. 

Defined coats are belted, defining the waist. A trench coat falls under the defined category. It is usually considered as rain gear because of its nylon material. 

Seamed coats, also known as pea coats, are buttoned and seamed above the waist. The shape of this coat falls under the statement category and is considered practical for every day use at the same time. 

Loose, undefined coats are the perfect cover up for a fitted dress paired with opaque tights.

Other fabulous details on coats are bell sleeves, tiered voluminous layers, skinny sleeves, A-line shapes.

take your pick ;p

In my opinion, Burberry's coats/line this season topped off all his competition. Very urban meets classy and best of all they are totally wearable xx

I recall a certain salesman in Selfridges who kind of took a liking of me and my best friend and gave us an "alleged" sneak peak at those coats, he called them the coats of the season and were all sold out to alleged "VIPs", it was so adorable how he was very sneaky and excited about giving us a preview, little did he know we found almost of all of them ready to be sold at Harvey Nicks xx lol
