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.
