Wanted! Black twill front mac and cloche hat from Miss Selfridge

Coat_and_hat_2After the various fashion horrors we’ve subjected you to today, we thought we’d give our eyes a rest by taking a quick look at the Miss Selfridge website, where we very quickly found ourselves coveting this very ladylike coat and hat combo, which will give a little bit of 40s style to your winter outerwear this year. Worn together, you’ll look like one of the central characters in a Miss Marple mystery, but that may not be such a bad thing: the ruffle front on the macintosh gives it a modern twist, and as for the cloche hat, well, it’s a damn sight more stylish than Toshop’s pierrot number, at least…

The hat is £15 and the coat is £60. If you covet them too, you can buy them at Miss Selfridge.

    I LOVE that hat! I’d actually been thinking about buying one in this style for the winter, but I’ll probably check out the amazing hat store nearby. I know I’d save money shopping online, but I’m a sucker the brick-and-mortar experience of shopping.

    I also think these are a great pair. Makes me wish I lived in a cooler climate where I would actually *need* to wear coats and hats.

    These are lovely. But, I’d swap places with Arielle anytime!

    Weird how we had the exact same thought – before I read how you described the hat, I saw Miss Lemon from Poirot wearing this hat in my mind’s eye!

    The coat is LOVE. Unfortunately cloche hats make my head look kinda phallic, so that hat, while darling, isn’t for me!
