If you’re anything like us, the recent plunge in temperature here in the UK has got us just a little bit obsessed with outerwear. More so than we usually are, even.
The problem with winter coats is that, because they tend to be to pretty expensive, they can end up taking up a huge chunk of your clothing budget, and if you’re dropping that much money on something, you REALLY don’t want to make an expensive mistake. Enter this Miss Selfridge full-skirted coats. Not only are these reasonably affordable at £85 (No, it’s not what you’d call “cheap”, but it’s not easy to find a great coat for a whole lot less), they’re also the kind of thing that will be really easy to wear, all season long. We’re big advocates of brightly coloured coats, as we’ve mentioned, but as fabulous as they are, statement outerwear is probably something you should only consider once you have the basics nailed down – or if it’s a colour you’re really sure you’ll wear with absolutely EVERYTHING.
These coats come in basic black and an autumnal green/brown mix, and while the colours are great winter neutrals, the extravagant faux-fur collars and cuffs really help make them stand out, and give them a bit of a toned-down ‘Doctor Zhivago’ feel, which is always a good thing.
The fit n’ flare shape is a classic (and one of the few styles that looks good on most figures), and the leather (or leather effect, we can’t be sure) waist belts make a nice change from the wool self-tie belts we normally see on this style of coat.
Available in UK sizes 4 – 16, these are available now at Miss Selfridge, who are really impressing us with their outerwear at the moment: if you’re not keen on these ones, and share our appreciation for those brighter colours, their single-breasted coat comes in powder pink, baby blue and bright yellow, and also retails for £85: get it here.
