Sorry! I just couldn’t help myself with the title… I spotted this coat last week during a little online trawl for new season staples (find my other favourites in this post) and I thought it was just perfect. I love the length, and the fit of the skinny sleeves, and the high shine faux leather, embossed with crocodile print, just elevates the whole look of it. You’d never guess, but it was also a great price, and it comes in 3 more colours (rich aubergine, chocolate and snake print). And it’s these kind of pieces that I’ll be building my Autumn Winter wardrobe around. Something classic – a trench style, something wearable – in black, with a bit of interest – it’s high shine croc… It looks fab paired with these heeled mules, a slip dress and a mini hat box bag, belted tightly at the waist, or wear it with washed stiff denim jeans, ankle boots and a cashmere rollneck for a more casual take on the look.
There are so many great versions of this style at the moment. I’ve picked out my favourites from the high street as well as some high end pieces too. This glossed-PU trench coat comes in 4 colours and is a great way to get the look, but if you’re looking for a real showpiece, this tulle style is just adorable! These versions are the very best of the high street in my opinion. Just keep the rest of your look tonal to make it look that bit more expensive.
