Winter Coat Inspiration

You may find this a touch premature, but as we ease into September in Scotland, it's time to start thinking about gloves, hats and coats. I have a lovely classic black wool wrap coat, but on those gloomy afternoons when it's dark by 6 o'clock, I wish I had something more cheerful and bright to wear. Coats can appear at any time of the year in charity shops, unless the shop has storage space (doubtful in the city centre). So, it's worth keeping your eyes open for a good Winter coat throughout the year. Unfortunately, folks don't want to be parting with good warm coats, so for a quality coat, you might want to check out John Lewis, Jenners/House of Fraser (origin of my black coat), Zara and M&S, all of which are worth paying the price for quality. Or you could win the lottery and buy one of these beauts:

  1. My favourite AW collection of the year is Gucci - I can't even begin to explain just how perfect I find everyone single ONE of their pieces! But coats-wise it has to be Jaeger. Oh if only! They are truly very expensive but you clearly pay for what you get with the quality of the fabric and the cut. Is it bad that I aspire to one day being able to buy a Jaeger coat for the Winter?!
