It comes a time, not necessarily every year, when a girl has to pick out the perfect winter coat. The general criteria usually includes warmth, comfort, and preferably style. This year, after cherishing, and tiring out my beloved Topshop sailor coat, I am on the hunt for the next perfect winter coat.
This year, however, I’ve been split. With the androgynous trend popping up on high streets left, right and centre, blazers and tuxes decorating every stores visual display and lapels simply being the new black, I’ve found thick blazer like coats simple irresistible.
Saying that, part of me is also shouting ‘Liv, think practicality! Come on, you’re British, you need a hood!’ Living in Britain, it is simply inevitable that it will rain/snow every winter, and having hair that isn’t particularly weather proof (think a gallon of hairspray and it STILL goes flat in the breeze) a hood is usually favourable in times of testing weather, hense a duffle coat being on my mind!
So, after browsing the high street, I have selected my favourite high street coats, and now have the decision of choosing just one, even if it means investing in a bobble hat to compensate for a hood! I’m so torn between a duffle coat or a boxy pocket coat! I’ve seen so many gorgeous coats, but these are my final 4 choices! Which do you like best?
Are there any coats you’ve got your eye on this winter?
