The air has gotten crisper and London is twinkling with Christmas lights which means that winter is here and it’s time to finally dust off our warmest coats.
Long, cosy wool coats are my absolute favourites – they’re timeless and instantly dress up any outfit. So even if I’m on the run, perhaps wearing workout clothes, but still wanting to look put together, they’re my go-to.
And if you have a petite figure and are worried that a long coat won’t be flattering, here’s my tip: simply steer away from ankle-long coats and opt for those that hit mid-thigh or knee-length instead. You could opt for fitted shoulders rather than oversize, and a coat with a belt to cinch in the waist.
I am wearing my wool coat over a knit jumper that I paired with boot-cut trousers, leather cowboy boots and a slicked bun, for a simple yet smart touch. And of course, a hint of gold with my favourite hoops by Mignonne Gavigan.
