So it’s important that you get one that you love and suits your style.
This winter there are so many amazing styles, military, puffas, parkers, tailored, duster and blazers, to keep you warm and stylish throughout the colder months.
Sarah loves quite classic looking items, she isn’t the tallest and is fairly curvy, with a hour glass figure. So picking a coat that suits her style and body shape is really important.
Sarah’s first choice is this gorgeous light grey wide lapel, wool coat from Mango. it has a removable belt so can be worn open or wrapped over to enhance her curves. Priced at £129.99 it isn’t the cheapest on the high street this winter, but it is perfect for Sarah’s style.
Sarah’s second choice is this beautiful military indego fit and flare from Ted Baker. Knee length and elegant looking, with its double breasted front and pockets. It is priced at £329.00 but it is a statement piece that could be used winter after winter. Teamed with an outfit for a day at the office, a shopping trip or a night out, it is a versatile, stunning item for this years capsule wardrobe.
Lucy has a really eclectic style and likes dressing up and down as well as wearing a variety of colours. This makes it particularly difficult when it comes to coat shopping, one of Lucy’s least favourite items to buy! Finding a coat that works with everything is almost impossible, really she just needs 5 coats to match with her ever changing styles…
Lucy’s first coat is a beautiful funnel neck coat. At £285 it’s the most expensive coat here but at least she lives up to her Exclusy Lucy nickname. Soft lined wool in a pale dusky beige colour, this coat would be great for smarter days and nights out.
Lucy’s second choice is a long faux shearling biker coat from ONLY £80. Teamed with skinny jeans this is perfect for Lucy on casual days, for a more edgy look. Shearling is on trend for Autumn Winter 2016 as well as being cosy and warm for the colder winter days.
