After launching Autumn/Winter 12 wardrobe discussion last week with a piece on biker boots, it is only logical to continue the story of new season essentials this week by moving to outerwear – the most necessary piece of clothing for British autumns. While looking around for the trendiest coats out there, no one collection has caught my eye (nearly in its entirety) more then the one offered by Zara. They got all the trends covered – colourwise, black and navy are present (yes, black is back); accessories like studs, peplums and large pockets are there; materials range from boucle to heavy wool to quilted leather; and on top of that masculine cut of most of the coats with perfect mid-thigh length. As far as the coats go, you won’t regret stocking up at Zara who went all out offering cool designer look with prices from £69.99 to £139. Autumn outerwear? Tick!
Check out my picks below and head to Zara.com or your nearest store for the whole range. P.S. I’m totally in love with coat number 4 – perfect substitute for short leather jackets that will keep me warmer and go well with both my daily looks based on skinny jeans and more dressed up outfits. Got to love multifunctionality.
1. Navy Coat with Applique on Sleeves, £129
2. Red/Navy Boucle Coat, £69.99
3. Coat with Studded Shoulders, £119
4. Coat With Quilted Sleeves, £139
5. Fantasy Wool Jacquard Coat, £79.99
6. Dark Green Coat in Fantasy Fabric with Chain, £119

Here is my favourite (so far) male-like item of clothing that I can imagine myself wearing as soon as the temperature drops to usual autumn level (to tell you the truth I can not imagine ever taking it off). It is a beautiful Stella McCartney navy wool coat. I believe it is an investment – it is hard to justify spending £1055 on http://www.net-a-porter.com otherwise.
This coat is a ticket into the new season, time to get the Autumn gear out!
