I love a classic, tailored, wool coat for late autumn and into winter. Last year I lived in a grey Zara over coat and a textured black one from Mango – great over skinny jeans with a shirt or sweater underneath.
My working week (lugging cardboard boxes) means that I pretty much live in jeans (or my gym kit) and to be honest, I pretty much always wear them if I’m going out too, so a coat like this smartens me up immediately with minimum effort. I’m all for minimum effort!
This season’s hot styles feature a lot of bright, pillar-box red and some gorgeous checks but if you want something a bit more sedate, I’ve got my eye on the camel one from Zara.
Let me know in the comments if you’ve spotted any good ones that I’ve missed.
