05.09.2011- Monday Must-haves: Winter Coat edition

Hello my lovelies! Hope you all had wonderful weekends. I know I probably sound like a broken record, but I honestly can't believe it's September already- the year has really flown by. Whilst I'm not really looking forward to the winter (dark mornings are the creation of the devil), one thing I am excited about is shopping for some new season essentials. So, with that in mind, this week's Must-haves post is appropriately winter themed, and features my pick of the best new season coats I've seen so far:

I have to confess, I'm a bit of a coat addict. Every year I vow not to cave in and buy myself a new one, and every year, without fail, I fail! I love this mustard yellow swing coat from Topshop, the bright colour would be the perfect boost during the gloomy winter months and the 60s inspired shape is bang on trend. I've yet to be convinced by capes (the idea of being exposed to a draught is one which makes me flinch!) but this gorgeous brown version from ASOS might just convert me- it certainly looks lovely and cosy. The classic camel coat will be forever stylish, and the belt detail on this one from Diana Vickers' collection for Very creates the perfect cinched in shape, and the colour is heavenly. I love the aviator style collar on this Pins & Needles trench from Urban Outfitters, and the muted neutral tones make it a really versatile piece. Finally, I think this Darling coat may just be the perfect addition to any wardrobe for AW11; it incorporates three trends in one- the collar detail, princess shape and deep burgundy colour. Decisions, decisions...

Have you picked up your winter coat yet? And what do you make of my choices for this week?

  1. The best thing about September/October time is coat shopping (: I buy a new one every year without fail haha. I've been eyeing up the mustard yellow Topshop coat too, but that ASOS faux fur trim cape is tempting me now...! Kind of leaning towards something navy, with detachable faux fur though. Must. Think. Practical. ;)

  2. Another coat addict! I fell head over heels in love with a £170.00 coat from Topshop last winter and I'm still heart-broken over it... that Mustard one could be a nice rebound ;) x

  3. I love that cape with the fur trim! Think it'd look even better in a wine colour.

  4. I love love love the trench! I always end up buying a new one every winter. I think I need to branch out and try something less safe this year though...the cape is stunning, I just don't know if I could pull it off! :( x

  5. I'm poor so I will be wearing the same crappy black coat I've had for ten years. Lol.

    But wow would I love to get my hands on one of these...sigh.

  6. I've already bought 2 coats this year!


    How was your FNO, I am so jealous of you and Sarah :(


  7. I the same, I always cave and buy another coat! My favourites are the mustard coloured topshop one and the darling lace collar princess coat, such a lovely shape! I haven't looked for a new winter coat yet but sure I will do soon! x
