At around the tender age of 16, I began feeling somewhat fashion conscious and began taking great pride in making sure my appearance made people think ‘wow‘. This has carried on today, now at the ripe age of nineteen years old, my fashion style resembles something similar to the ‘Made In Chelsea’ reality TV stars (if that’s what you can call them): sophisticated, classy, stylish – everything most women aim to be.
Ever since this love for fashion flourished, I became a little bit obsessed with coats – even still today, and perhaps even more so. Whenever I’d go out, even a simple activity such as going to M&S to get some milk, somehow I’d end up in Zara or Topshop staring in awe at the wide ranging selection of coats on offer. Who knew someone would be so obsessive over coats? Jamie Dornan, yes, but coats? No. But I believe it’s due to the fact coats are such a statement yet classy piece of clothing that will never go out of style, giving me an excuse to spend, spend, spend.
For me, over-sized coats are everything. Every single coat I have owned has been over-sized, long-line – the epitome of the so-called masculine Tomboy ish style, something I absolutely adore. Whatever the colour the coat may be, there’s no doubt in my mind that I’d love it and want to buy it. Whats more, the current 2016 AW trend is long coats so I am in my element going shopping at the moment; even happier when I find a bargain in the sales! Personally I think long coats are way more flattering and way more trendy, sophisticated and classy than any other length because they make you feel so much more confident and help you to carry yourself in an air that makes others around you gawp and salivate with jealousy (trust me, countless times people have stopped me in the street to ask me where my coats are from).
Take my word for it, long coats are so effortless, sophisticated and sexy and are great for all occasions. Whatever your style may be, a long coat will always look good. Tomboy ish chic – yes. Hobo chic – yes. Trendy chic – yes. Daytime chic – yes. Evening chic – yes. You simply cannot go wrong, so I highly recommend purchasing one, especially whilst the sales are on… bag yourself a bargain!
Over-sized coats are everything
Additionally, I also am in love with fur coats – though not real fur because they not only are waaay out of my price range, they’re quite obviously unethical and not something I condone, despite the fact they’re beautiful. Nevertheless, faux fur makes me happy – such as my bargain fur jacket from Next costing just £35.
But anyway, here are some of my favourite coats around I have seen recently whilst browsing Pinterest – my favourite hobby.
