Last week I wrote about wearing my winter coat without actually, um, physically wearing it. See, it’s been really rather mild up north. Leather jacket weather has continued throughout October and quite frankly, there’s been no place for a wool-and-faux-fur full length coat. But although the reasonable weather continues, today I just wanted to cuddle up in something fluffy.
See? Here I am, cuddling up. There’s something very comforting about a warm winter coat, and it was just what I needed on a grey, drizzly day like today.
I’ve been feeling a bit ‘blah’ about my wardrobe recently – I think it’s the weather (all ailments can be blamed on the weather at this time of year). But that’s another great thing about a winter coat – a long one like this is an outfit in itself, so what you’re wearing underneath is inconsequential… until you reach your destination and have to take the coat off, of course. But for those glorious outdoor moments, all a statement coat needs is a lick of lipstick and some great shoes. These, by Clarks and c/o Sarenza, are called ‘Halloween Cool’. How apt!
I asked last week and many of you said no, so I’ll ask again – are you wearing a winter coat yet? How do you style yours?
