The Coat is the most important piece of the winter wardrobe (and one of the reasons it’s been featured heavily on our blog this season .

After all, the coat is the first item that people see of us – if the coat is cheap and scruffy, no one is interested in what you wear underneath. A good quality coat, just like the  handbag, is an investment well worth the money.

This year, I decided to treat myself to a quirky 60s print coat in a straight cut. The deep rich purple colour with the playful red dots / gingham checks are a breath of fresh air compared to the classic, black coats I own mostly. While I enjoy the simplicity of a well tailored, black coat,  I do sometimes long for a brighter coloured, cute take of the winter basic.

Rebel photographed me in Berlin at the famous Oberbaumbruecke at the trendy Berlin area of Kreuzberg.

 

Never compromise on quality when shopping for a coat.

    Fabulous coat!

    A question though: Don’t your feet get freezing without socks?

      Thnaks Sequin Cat! We had about 15 degrees in Berlin on the day of the phot, so no socks were justifyable 🙂
