It makes me endlessly happy when I see the Autumn/Winter collections lately. Gone are the days when colder months meant drab and unflattering, in favour of rich fabrics and cool colours.
I've only recently let go of the notion that a coat should be a 'sensible' purchase, realising that it can still be wearable without being a drab plain black number. These coats are from Oli, a site which I love for their excitingly vast stock and their fantastic customer service (which is really quite important with online shopping for things you can't be sure to fit). While these are just a small snippet of the lovely coats and jackets they have to offer, they show off my point rather well - Just because it's cold doesn't mean you have to look frumpy. Snap one of these up and strut down the high street like it was the Champs Elysées.
