The more coats the better in my opinion. You wear them every day through the winter and part of the reason I think some people consider winter fashion more boring than other seasons, is because regardless of what you wear underneath, a coat covers it up. So why not ring the changes?
This checked coat from M&S is the first of my winter coat investments so far. I love the shape— it’s a great length for me (I’m 5ft 6″) and the lapels and fitted shoulders give it a nice smart look. I’m also wearing a gorgeously soft cashmere polo neck that I think I may have to get in cream soon too…
