The AW 2016 Coat

Now, for all that know me my secret passion and favourite garment is The Coat, my husband always says ‘like our house needs another coat’, I have to say I do have a whole wardrobe with a coat for every occasion.

I wanted to show you a little selection of coats that are adorning our high street this season, it will show you styles & colours.

I have always liked the parka, it’s always warm and always looks lovely. This Paula fur trim parka from Phase Eight is a great statement colour, adds super accentuation to the waist and will add a splash of colour to any outfit.

This coat is now reduced from £175.00 to £125.00 in an Online exclusive offer



Now, the cape I feel gives a wonderful elegant look, very chic, quite Parisian. Perfect for the Apple body shape. This Aillaa wool cape is currently available in Ted Baker and can be purchased in the navy (as shown below ), black or red.

A great price of £199.00



O’h lots of texture on this Faux fur Cocoon coat in Whistles, now tell me you just wouldn’t want to stroke this all day! It is currently priced at £275.00 with FREE standard delivery and returns.

This coat is oversized but does does taper to the knee so will give you some shape to the body.


This Pink check button through coat is gorgeous, adds colour, texture and print to any outfit and what’s even better it is on sale at Miss Selfridge at an amazing price of £60.04

This coat actually cuts into the waist and therefore gives a beautiful hour glass shape to any body shape. You will see the single line of buttons draws the eye down and elongates and slims the body.


The Double breasted coat is a must for any Autumn / Winter season, this coat is just super, available in Top Shop and just £59.00. Be careful of the double breasted as it can create width to any body shape but you will also see from the photo that this coat again dips into the waist so will also create shape.

This coat would look stunning over a black dress for an evening or with a pair of indigo jeans and a berry knit. This colour also looks amazing with red and navy.


And to finish I had to show you this simply gorgeous, quirky Kitch down parka from Zadig & Voltaire at £340.00. This jacket will certainly make a statement this season.




So, which style of coat takes your fancy this season?

Lots of love
