No mistaking the cold weather is still with us and doesn't look like leaving anytime soon. Going out and about you're going to need to keep warm and cosy and, as much as I love my leather jackets, they just don't cut it when trying to keep toasty.
You need more than one coat to cover all occasions and I think I've got it sorted between a couple of my favourite brands.
The Blaze coat from Firetrap (now in their sale) is smart enough for work and striking enough to make you stand out in the style stakes.
Weekends require something a bit more casual and, again from Firetrap, the Essa parka ticks all the boxes. The quilted lining keeps me warm and the huge detachable faux fur collar is so cosy!
I team this with my cream knitted Ugg hat and Ugg Plumdale boots.
One of my all-time favourite design labels is a Desigual and I'm lucky enough to live nearby to a great stockist - Extreme of Connaught Avenue, Frinton. A couple of years ago I invested in this fabulous coat which never fails to attract attention.
Each year they bring out the same coat in different colours/patterns and the detailing is amazing.
Finally, today I received my bargain leather Firetrap jacket from their online sale and its gorgeous - can't wait for the weather to warm up a little!
