This season it is easy to slip into wearing black and not emerge out of such dress mode until spring. So here are three beautiful coats that will make you forget black and opt for a lighter hue this winter!
1. Michael Kors Faux Fur-Collar Satin-Twill Coat, £350. Cozy and stylish this coat is great if you are looking for a classier version of your usual parka! I am in love with 3/4 length sleeves of this coat and how beautiful the faux fur looks. Another good example that no animals need to be harmed to create warm and beautiful winter ware.
2. Missoni May Wool-Blend Tweed Coat, £3315. This beauty would break the bank but if you want a perfectly tailored coat you won’t find a cooler item in stores right now. Wear it during the day with cozy cardigan or at night with wintery dress. So pretty I can’t look away.
3. Rag and Bone Magnum Leather and Canvas Hooded Coat, £1655. This screams city chic and begs for skinny jeans and flat boots. And with a very practical hood it will keep your head warm in the wintery wind. But the most exciting part is a combination of leather and canvas. That is probably as exciting as a coat can get.
You can purchase all three coats from http://www.net-a-porter.com.

I am a massive fan of fur coats. I am also a massive fan of living creatures. Hence I say ‘No’ to real fur and stick to faux – it feels guilt-free and is way cheaper!
Despite the weather new season clothing is hitting the stores – hence time to stock up on autumn/winter goodies. This foxy jacket is from asos, costs £70 and is featured in their special autumn coats edit. I must admit I am in love: simple style and absolutely beautiful colour that is so ‘in’ this season, what’s not to love?
The most important thing of course is the feel of it – faux fur needs to look good! The better it looks the more people will opt out of wearing real fur and that is the way forward! So I am waiting for my asos delivery and thanks to easy returns I will choose weather the quality of the jacket that looks oh-so-hot online is up to scratch. Will let you know!
UPDATE: I received it. It’s better than I expected – soft, warm and looks amazing on!
