Blue Coat, Grey Roll Neck Sweater, Black Fluffy Bag and Black Knee High Boots c/o Next, Ray Ban Wayfarers, Asos Fur Stole, Debenhams Faux Leather Skirt
When I was a little girl, one of my favourite memories was the excitement of finding the new Next Diectory on the doorstep. I would then sit and circle all the things I liked in the hope that mumma would take note (she always did) and since I have been back at home, I have found great pleasure in returning to my old habits. Next's Winter Collection dropped just last week and it is safe to say a lot of has gone on my wishlist!
I can't quite believe it is 'mid-season' already but with the cold finally setting in I am wasting no time in getting the wear out of all my 'Autum' wardrobe before winter really kicks in and the new Next collection boasts these relevant transitional pieces - my absolute favourite being this grey roll neck sweatshirt which I have barely taken off since I got it! It is the perfect match to any plain black bottom half but because of it's modern 60's vibe, I love playing on this and wearing it with a mini skirt and knee high boots for the ultimate casual and cool day-time outfit.
Now I can finally start wearing my coats, I am wanting to make a real statement with them so pairing a monochrome outfit with block coloured outerwear is the best way to do this. This tailored baby blue number is so warm but not too heavy and a big nod to the winter pastels trend that is everywhere at the moment but I wanted to finish the look off with more monochrome fur so give that real cosy feel to the look.
There is a reason why Next have been one of the high street's most loved brands for so many years and their affordable and easy-to-wear pieces are going from strength to strength - Which is your favourite from the next collection?
