With the autumn/winter seasons fast approaching, it is time to put away your bright summer pieces and start focusing on darker/earthier tones to help create a statement winter wardrobe.
One of the main things for winter is a unique coat. There are far too many coats and jackets out there to pick from, so we’ve focused on 5 of our favourite pieces available from the high street for under £100.
This black check oversized coat is the perfect coat to help you transition easily into the coming season. Regardless of what you wear it with, it will create a statement all on its own. This classic cut will keep you warm and cosy and would look great paired with some black patent brogues or knee-length leather boots. It features accent hues of pale pink and orange, has a single button fastening and two pockets. (riverisland.com – £80.00)
Although A/W focuses on dark earthy colours, light pastel colours still play a large role within the season. This funnel coat by New Look looks effortlessly elegant. The empire line cut and slashed pockets turn this from a standard coat to a funky wardrobe essential. Paired with some black wet look leggings and some white heels, this coat will most definitely turn heads. (New Look: asos.com – £49.99)
As classic as this is, no autumn wardrobe is complete without a trench coat and this double-breasted trench coat from Zara features all the right detailing. As well as side pockets, the jacket features zips, buckles and button detailing. This coat will go perfectly with an evening dress and will work just as well with a shirt, a pair of trousers and a statement tote bag. (zara.com – £99.99)
Biker coats have been cropping up over the past few years for the A/W season and it is clear to see that they are getting better and better in terms of cuts and detailing. This biker coat from H&M is a step away from your standard biker coat. The tie belt helps to create a chic and elegant transition and would look great paired with a formal evening dress or better so, an all black outfit. (hm.com – £39.99)
As much as people hate fur, it looks rather great in autumn. This vintage faux fur coat from ASOS will really create a funky outfit. Paired with a skater skirt, some boots and a bold rucksack, you’ve got a killer outfit. Not only will this coat look great in the coming season, yet it will continue to look good over the next few years – most definitely an investment I think! (asos.com – £65.00)
