Ok, so I’ve now seen everything. A coat that doubles up as a sleeping bag? At the risk of sounding like my gran, what is the world coming to?! I mean, I’m all up for stepping out the door in a garm as WARM as a sleeping bag, but an ACTUAL sleeping bag?!
Here are some more coats which are a little less crazy but just as cosy.
Ohhh my goodness. How beautiful are All Saints coats and why hasn’t anyone told me about them before? Look at the ruching on the Kenzie…so unusual. And what I love about the Ripley check coat is the fact that you can wear it with or without the belt. Just adding that small detail gives it a totally different shape. It’s basically two coats in one.
My best ever Topshop buy was a long khaki parka with a fur trim a couple of years back. It cost £95 but as you could remove the padded fur lining and wear the outer layer as a lightweight parka on its own it could be worn throughout the seasons. Cost per wear probably worked out as being pence. I am clinging on to it for dear life but I’ve worn it so much that holes are pretty much appearing. They sold a similar one in H&M last winter but it just wasn’t as comfy. So if anyone sees it restocked in Topshop at any time soon please let me know IMMEDIATELY. And in the meantime, how lovely are the coats that are masquerading as dressing gowns? This Topshop one is my favourite.
Around this time every year I am tempted to buy a faux fur number for the run-up to Christmas. I think they look SO chic and slinky and cosy. But I worry that I won’t get much wear out of it after the festive period. Am I being ridiculous? Do you get much wear out of yours? The best I’ve seen so far is this New Look one.
Oliver Bonas have gone all military on us in their range of jackets. I would quite happily wear each and every one of the coats on their website.
Designer Eudon Choi has recently teamed up with John Lewis and his coats are to die for. My favourite is this minimalist wrap front number, but I also love the unusual placement of Eudon’s signature ruffle on this frill hem coat. The whole range looks beautifully cut and oh-so-toasty.
Leopard print lovers unite… There is a new must-have jacket in town. When I saw this one I immediately texted one of my work colleagues and told her that she needed it in her life. And for those of you who are still lusting after the Joules leopard print Chelsea boots, well these ones from Next are nearly as nice.
Which one’s your favourite? Would you wear a sleeping-bag coat?
