Best of Winter AW2014 coats

My favourite piece of clothing has always been the dress – up until autumn 2013 that is.  After having scanned this seasons coats, I declare the coat as the quintessence of my wardrobe! After all, the coat is the fashion icon par excellence!

From classic duffle coats in chic egg shape to feminine dress coats – there is a shape for everyone. But this is not all: This year, forget about depressing winter colours like black, forest green or deep plum – this years winter coats come in bright colours – mustard yellow, poppy red, neon orange, royal blue and powder pink. This season is about surviving the dark, long winter months in vibrant hues. What colour will you be rocking this year?

Timeless and Cute: The Duffle Coat

Coats/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

…easily recognisable by the hood, the toggle fastening and twin pockets is a timeless, quintessential British classic, although the thick, woollen material (duffel) derives from a small town in Belgium. It’s a piece worth investing in as it will still be “in” every winter season of the coming years.

This one from the current Espirt collection 2011/2012 has a lovely warm camel colour and the fabric is made in Italy.
