The countdown to LFW is on, which can only mean one thing - AW is coming, hoorraayyy! Don't get me wrong, July was lush but with the turn of August came a turn of Autumn and it's got me reinstating my knitwear and coat collection into my wardrobe (not that I needed much of an excuse)
Anyway, to show you all that a little self restraint, I've left the chunky aran knits and fur bombers for a little bit later and I have done 4 'ways to wear' outfits with coats and jackets that are suitable for this inbetweeny bit of season.
The first being this trench - light weight, structered and damn right sexy (even with clothes on underneath) The trench allows you to layer as when it's necessary which is perfect for the unpredictable weather. The collar but cute motif gives off a fun 'back to school' feel to this outfit, which is the perfect pick me up for worktime wardrobes after being abroad.
Who'd have thought the flasher mac would gain popularity? me neither but it definitely works! The beige tones means its ok to go super jazzy with the rest of you outfit but finish it off simply and sleekly. The 'normcore' trend is still going strong this season so simple and sleek everything works too. This has turned into my 'go-to' coat recently, as has this combo of striped M&S dress with my Superstars2. Literally the easiest outfit run around in day-to-day but a pop of lip colour finishes the look off with the perfect amount of class.
