I Want Never Gets... Coats

Now that the A/W11 trends are dominating fashion magazines and blogs, I thought it would be appropriate to share with you some of my favourite winter coats from the high street. I LOVE winter, there's something just so wonderful about layering up chunky knits, belted warm coats and a quirky woolly hat!
First up is this simple, classic black coat with the interesting addition of a double collar. I have a bit of a thing for belted coats (having boobs means unless you have a belt to pull you in, you end up looking like you're wearing a sack), and I think this one would be a perfect work coat - you could easily add colourful scarves and gloves to bring a bit of personality to it. £100 from Warehouse Linky!
Again with a belt, this double breasted flared dress is adorable (and so is the model!). I think its a really great colour to go for if you're bored of black coats, and will look cute worn over most things due to the flared skirt. £120 from ASOS Linky!
A little less conventional is this heritage coat. I love the tweed-style fabric and the two toned arm and back of the coat. Admittedly I wouldn't be able to wear this to work, but as a weekend coat it would work well over most clothes. If only I could afford to have a weekend winter coat... sigh. £100 from ASOS Linky!
My favourite of all is this absolutely divine drape coat from Oasis. I can't put into words how much I want this coat! It definitely doesn't look like a high street coat, and has the makings of much higher end outerwear! I'm hoping I'll be able to save up for this beauty before it sells out (increasingly unlikely due to moving house and having to pay 1,000 years of rent up front!) £95 from Oasis Linky!
When do you think is early enough to invest in winter wear without it being too early?


  1. I love all those coats!! Im buying mine when I get paid at the end of August! That is slightly too early but when its raining and cold I dont care!!! :) The Oasis one you posted about is GORGEOUS. xx

  2. I love coats. I think it's always nice to treat yourself to a coat every winter..they're so worth the money x

  3. Thanks ladies! I agree Tamsin, you probably end up wearing a coat more than the rest of your wardrobe so £100-£200 is easily justified.
