It's time to 'Fall' in love with coats

Anyone who knows me, knows that my heart goes a flutter with the thought of wearing coats now the cold weather is back in full force. The seasons have well and truly changed and I am obsessing over my favourite Autumn/Winter coats on the high street. I am very picky about coats. I love tailored, classic looks that have amazing stitching, buttons or ties and a colour that will never go out of style. No, no's for me are definitely zips, different coloured stitching, velcro!?, anything that looks cheap and if it is a A/W coat there has to be a lapel. Here are a few of my favourites currently available on the high street...

Long vest with fur collar, Zara £89.99

Now I know, this may not be the most practical of coats for the cold weather as it has no sleeves but I love how chic it is and look at all that faux fur! I think this would be perfect in Autumn with a thick jumper. It adds that streamline elegance that you can only find in a tailored coat. 

Hand-made dressing gown coat, Zara £99.99

Ever since Olivia Pope graced the silver screens in Scandal I have been obsessed with dressing gown coats, I associate them with power and elegance and that is exactly what I want out of a coat. This is very thin for a coat, so a jumper would definitely be required in the colder months but perfect for now!

A tailored black coat is something that I am really missing from my wardrobe, it really is a staple, classic piece that everyone should have at hand. This is also formal enough to be dressed up at evening with a tailored trouser or left open to accompany a great LBD.

Cashmere blend wrap coat, Topshop £225.00

Another great staple piece in every wardrobe is a camel coat, I have one from Zara a couple of years ago that some days in the A/W months only comes off my back to sleep. However, this has rather caught my eye and you can never go wrong if there is a bit of Cashmere involved. 

Kimono cape, River Island £55.00

I love how this coat looks on, it is perfect for Autumn with it's short sleeves that will go great with a turtleneck underneath. It is perfect if you are wanting to go for a statement necklace or bracelet as it showcases it perfectly.

Now that I have critically analysed them I just want them all! However, I am not sure that they will fit in my cupboard!
