The number 1 thing I want from life right now is a brand new coat. Okay, that may be a slight tiny little over-exaggeration but scrolling through ASOS at the moment is giving me serious coat cravings. Realistically I should only buy one but how can I decide when there are so many beauties to choose from? I have a pretty healthy ASOS faves list right now and have picked my favourites of the favourites in hope that I will eventually stop just staring and watching them go in and out of stock and actually make up my mind.
Okay, so the theme here is clearly long and grey. I feel these coats can be worn for all sorts of occasions whether it be a fancy evening out or a dress-down Friday and versatility is key if you’re only buying one new coat for the season. Grey, black and white are my favourite clothes colours for A/W (and let’s be honest spring/summer too) because everything always goes and the simplest outfit can look fab.
I have had such an affinity with faux fur ever since that grey gilet I owned when I was ‘like 12’, but have never had the courage to buy and wear a fur coat since then. This is clearly a huge fashion trend at the moment and might fizzle out over a few years so I’m not sure if they are worth a cheeky purchase (money doesn’t grow on trees and all that jazz). But just look at how pretty they are!?
Last but not least are my beloved denims. My go to jacket is an old Ralph Lauren denim that my mum passed down to me and I have decided it will become my family heirloom. Obsessed? No. That one is blue so quite clearly I need a different colour, like grey or black for example. A bit of faux shearling to keep me toasty in winter is the perfect complement to a classic with a great price tag taboot.
So these along with around 40 others are filling up my wish list and I would say I am now around 0.05 times closer to choosing my number 1. One step at a time, people.
