Most Wanted Winter Coats: Black, wide collar jacket from Monsoon

Monsoonjacket

I’m currently on the hunt for a new winter coat. Seeing as I’m on a bit of a budget (for which read: "I have no money") it’s got to black, so that it’ll go with (almost) everything, and I’d quite like it to have some kind of stand-out detailing, like an oversized collar, say, because I love me some oversized collar. Actually, I’d quite like it to be this ‘Ruby’ jacket from Monsoon, come to think of it. I love the drama of the collar, but the simplicity of the rest of the piece means that it would work really hard for me all winter – and probably next winter, too.

The snag? It’s £95, which is a little more than I’d hoped to pay – only a little, though, so I’m keeping it on my "To Buy" list for now. What kind of coat will you be buying this winter?

    I got me a black wide collared (doubles as funnel-neck for very cold days) jacket with belt from H&M for £50, which I lurve! And being on a budget myself I was overjoyed to find a vintage, pure wool, red, wide-collared, princess-line long coat with big buttons up in a charity shop for £10.99! Wool’ll keep me warm allllll winter long!

    I think the buttons look a bit cheap. Maybe you could replace them with a nice vintage set.
