Put Some Spring into Your Step With a Fab New Coat
Well your winter coat is away now right? Maybe you are tempted to get it back out with the ever changing British weather, and the rare sighting of the sun. But fear not, it might be that you need a trans seasonal coat – one that you can go to in all weathers including wind and rain. Here are my favourites currently available on the high-street, which will last for many seasons to come:
Above Right: Kenneth Cole at House of Fraser £84 from £140 Sizes 8 – 16
Above left: Principles by Ben de Lisi at Debenhams £65 sizes 8 – 20
Left: Per Una at M & S £75 sizes 8 – 22
Right: Dickins & Jones at House of Fraser £70 from £100. Also in Navy sizes 8 – 20
Below: Tommy Hilfiger at House of Fraser £130 Sizes 4 – 12
When buying a coat consider what length suits your proportions, what colour works with the majority of your wardrobe? Consider if and where the coat has pockets – do these add bulk to your frame? Does the coat have a drawstring which can define your waist and give you shape? How long are the coat sleeves on you? Can the sleeves be folded back? Does the coat have a hood, is it removable, and can the coat be machine washed?
Ensure the coat fits – try on a couple of sizes, and don’t be tempted to go for a size that is too big. It will only make you look bigger. And remember you can change the look of your coat by adding a colourful scarf.
