It's a Wrap!
It’s a wrap!
OMG, we just love autumn winter for it’s cozy and street-ready fashion. Each August I find myself planning my winter mix-and-match pieces and my essentials are as always: some stunning boots (maybe 2 pairs - one casual every day wear and another that perfect for those dressier occasions!) and a coat or cape in the new season trends and colours.
Often when we leave the house in winter, the items that are on display (and majorly contributing to our fashion cred!) are our outer wear and shoes so they must meet certain style, fashion and glam criteria as follows:
- Have made an appearance at the catwalk shows for this season
- Been seen on my style idols / fave celeb / girl crush of the moment
- Be affordable
- Be versatile - look equally good with my go-to dress of the season and my trusty skinnies or leggings
- Be totes comfie
Quite a list that and so it begins - the hunt for my perf A/W15 cover-up! Not as difficult as it first seems however, and after limited amount of research I have found it and fallen in love. What is it, I hear you ask? Can one coat possibly fulfill the above wish list? Well this one can and won’t feel even a sliver of inadequacy as I familiarise it with it’s job description for the winter. It proudly steps up to the mark and assures me that we have an adventurous few months ahead!!
Step Up the Wrap Coat! Light-weight and versatile, it ticks all my boxes. I love the way it looks equally good worn open or belted at the waist. The key colour for the season is grey (added to the usual autumn / winter mix of navy, burgundy and green) and this colour is neutral enough to pair with vibrant party colurs of red, purple and silver and looks equally good with my more muted key pieces of dark leggings and jeans!
Worn by celebrities from Kim Kardashian to the ever-fashionable and chic Michelle Keegan, the wrap coat is a wardrobe must-have for autumn / winter 2015.
