Currently Loving : A/W Jackets at Next.

Monday, 26 November 2012


I do like coats, probably as much as handbags. I am always on the look out for a nice coat or jacket whether its the winter or summer. I cant get enough of them! This year I have got myself new 'everyday' winter jacket, but sometimes there are occassions where you need to make a bit more of an effort and your standard Parka or trustee (faux) leather just wont cut it.You can withstand the cold air for fashion girls! Next have always been one of the first places I look if I am searching for something a little bit smarter. I am also always swayed by the fact you can order items online and not have to pay straight away (they invoice you. You receive the item, try it on & you want to keep it, you pay the invoice. If it isnt for you, you can return it and you dont have to worry about chasing to get a refund)

The above jackets are all something that would be suitable for christmas parties, drinks after work or nice meals out for friends. The fitted styles are flattering on all shapes and instantly smarten up an outfit. This season I have been drawn to prints and textures. I like to keep my outfits quite simple but then have one key item that is a bit more jazzy. Take the floral jersey for example, bang on the winter floral trend and will instantly add a burst of colour to a simple LBD with heels. The Brocade jacket is a little bit more 'night out' worthy. I would actually wear it, just as Next have styled it on their website! Such a chic outfit!

Fit & Flare Coat |   Black fur collar coat

I do admit though, sometimes we cant all brave the cold in a jacket and we do need something a little bit warmer to keep us toasty and stylish in the colder months. I always think a nice tailored coat looks so sophisticated and 'grown up' (Ha look at me saying Grown up, I'm 24!) Anyways, I love the shape of the fit & flare coat, it does exactly as the name suggests and just looks lovely! The leopard fur collar coat is equally as nice, Im not brave enough for a full on leopard coat yet, so the collar detailing is a nice subtle touch to ease me into the trend! I dont think you can ever have too many coats in your wardrobe. I mean, when you are out and about in the colder months, people see your coat more than the clothes underneath. Therefore it makes perfect sense to have a variety of them in your life!

Much Love
