The baltic temperatures are so worth it when you get to wear a chic new coat…
When it comes to personal style, who doesn’t like to shake things up? A midi dress one day then a blazer and trusty denim the next; experimenting with a new look is the key to keeping fashion fun. But no matter how varied your style is we’re willing to bet that there’s one item of clothing you wear day in, day out: your winter coat.
Whether you swear by your ankle-sweeping camel coat or only have eyes for your puffer jacket, every woman can think of one fail-safe coat that has faithfully seen her through the cold months. Chances are that coat is hanging on the back of your chair right now. In which case, don’t read this next bit out loud: the time has come to cheat on your winter coat.
Yes, the temperatures are only just hovering above freezing, your lunchtime walks require you to wrap up and ‘tis the season to invest in a new buy-now, love-forever winter jacket.
