Every year I seem to forget just how cold our British winters are! I am most certainly never, ever prepared for the colder months. That said, yesterday I had my first Starbucks hazelnut hot chocolate of AW12 and thoroughly enjoyed it-HURRAH! On top of that, I've enjoyed indulging in some new clothes and shoes for winter (yet I still don't own a winter coat...) which I hope to show you over the course of the weekend.
So this week my friend has asked me to track down a winter coat for her after giving me a few specifics of what she was after, which got me thinking about this years winter coats in general. I quickly realised there was a huge emptiness within my blog just itching to be filled with a post, this post in fact, all about the outerwear of AW12-the title gave it away didn't it?
I am loving so many trends regarding outerwear this year it's making it impossible for me to choose one for myself, and I emailed about 17 options to my previously mentioned friend! There's the long, thick coats with the designer vibe and the near designer prices (most seen at Topshop, Zara and Mango), the khaki parkas which you're never really sure will keep you warm, the always trendy duffel coats and recently, I've been seeing more of probably one of my favourite outerwear themes ever, shearling!
Here's a short-list of my favourites anyway at a range of styles and prices, with the links below!
P.s.I found some pretty good bargains on boohoo.com and am in love with this fearn coat by Dahlia, but their images are unusable!
