As if our luck would have it, the second Style Essential we have been asked to style for the Dorothy Perkins AW14 campaign is The Fur. Where I see the shirt as a firm staple, the fur is definitely a statement that you need for the colder months. Whether it's stoles, cuffs or a full blown technicolour coat, there is something that just oozes glamour when it comes to fur (faux though, please)

The fur coat has been one of those pieces that I've always dreamt of having, but have never managed to find the right one at the right time so I cannot thank DP enough for finally uniting me with a piece I have had in my mind and on my wishlist for a good few years. The mink colour is the perfect alternative to your usual cream (for all the coffee spillers out there, like me) the fur is delicately soft and the length of the coat is precisely perfect - all in all, dream coat right here.

Now I'm in possession of this coat, it is killing me that the weather has done yet another dramatic U-turn and it's far too hot to wear! Only in England could you get away with an outfit containing a fur coat and shorts. I chose to wear the coat draped over a shorts suit for this particular post though as I wanted to show you how to add that touch of glam into what would be an 'every day/work wear' ensemble. We all know we can chuck a fur coat over a sexy frock and look wonderful, but why can't be look wonderful on the tube at 8am on a Monday morning too? With this coat being under £70, the answer is, we all can ;)
