Just so you know, I have a thing for coats. Love them. Get really frustrated if I don’t have the right shape jacket / coat / transitional piece to go with whatever outfit I want to wear. Annoyed mainly because I have two wardrobes full of them and if I haven’t got what I want, then what’s the point quite frankly?
I already have my lust-list for this AW13 as well.
Need a pink coat. There were some AMAZING pinks on the catwalk – like these:
From pale, dusky rose to full-throttle fuschia, any shade will do – as long as it’s pink.
Then of course, you need your longline biker, some kind of camel Crombie and an evening coat that you can throw on with your jeans to go to the pub or over your LBD to a party.
So I am BEYOND excited about the new AW collection from Marks & Spencer, who have designed a range of coats so completely on point, you really don’t need to go elsewhere (although obviously you will because shopping’s fun).
And this isn’t even a sponsored post, I promise.
I LOVE their Best of British collection, which I saw at the Press Day last month. Made entirely in the UK, it has an amazingly luxe feel – classics with a cool twist. This was my stand-out piece.
For nursery drop-off, a cool parka; for work, the perfect pink; for weekends, your ultimate longline biker and your classic leopard because everyone needs a classic leopard. Here are the coats I am coveting from M&S this Autumn.
It may only be July, but I’m not the only one thinking about it already, right?
