I was kindly asked by F&F if I’d like to pick out a new winter coat – they have a great selection of women’s coats. I’ve never bought a coat from them before but I was really impressed with this one. When it comes to picking a winter coat I have a few things that are a must.
It must have some good pockets, this coat actual has four pockets. Two zipped and then two open ones. There is nothing I hate more the false pockets, what’s the point? I love that it has a fur collar but the great thing about this collar is it actually buttons off – great if you want to change up the look of the coat. I really like the boyfriend fit that this coat has, I find it really flattering and it’s so easy to just throw on. Another thing I look for is that it’s long enough to keep your bum warm, especially important if you use public transport to get to work.
I was also trying to stay away from a black coat, I think we can all admit when it comes to buying a winter coat we lean towards darker colours. Grey was something a little different for me – it have to say it has been my go to coat.
I just have my black skinny Leigh jeans on from Topshop, my Duo ankle boots, a cardigan from La Redoute and a hat from the La Redout x Courrèges collection. This was a just a casual outfit for last minute Christmas shopping, I hope you’ve all done yours!
