The Winter Coat

I always find winter coat shopping strangely stressful. I am pretty sure we all end up wearing our winter coats almost every day, from about now until March, so it's a pretty big decision! As much as I would love to own a high end coat one day, the price tag it just wayyyy beyond my budget, so I go for high end high street instead. You need a good quality coat (preferably 100% wool too) that is going to stand the test of time and is going to keep looking smart no matter how much you wear it. Generally, I would recommend COS for coats - I have a few from COS they just don't date because of their timeless styling, and the quality is just incredible. However, this year I have gone for this French Connection number. It's not a super heavy coat, so it's perfect for this time of year and for layering up with knitwear when the temperature drops. What I love the most is the open back detailing, which is unlike anything I have had before in a coat! You can wear like a bajillion different ways too, which I showed in a recent video
