Get your coat on

It does seem a little out of place to be talking about winter coats whilst we are currently bathed in brilliant sunshine and proper heat radiating out to warm the bones.

But when has fashion been practical?

Here are my picks from Mango


Contrast sleeve Masculine coat £99.99 - looks much better in real life than this photo. If you wanted to channel a Military look without looking like you've stepped out of the TA
Masculine Cut coast £79.99 - this looked so similar to another coat I saw in Kooples but for a fraction of the price
Perfecto Effect Coat £129.99 I really like the biker jacket styling with the winter practicalities of covering you up and keeping you warm.

Hopefully retailers will keep the coats in stock past October - by then they traditionally start piling in the festive party wear and you just can't buy a decent warm coat in November when you really need it.

Don't get me started on trying to buy a swimsuit in summer.....in the run up to the August Bank holiday I hit every single store in Covent Garden and only one place Aubin and Willis  had them in stock. I know retailers have struggled and started the summer sale very early this year but seriously it was not much to ask for a swimming cossie for August!
