Winter Trends – What is your Coat for the Season?

A good coat is a timeless fashion investment, one that everyone should save up for, or splash out for. Whether it’s a floor length, a cashmere or a classic Chanel, whatever your style, it is surely something that every girl should invest in.

This year, with the exciting opening of Zara in Johannesburg and Durban (note I have not said Cape Town, but that is another issue all together) us South Africans are given plenty of options to look good this winter. Having lived in Cape Town on and off for the last 10 years, with a small stint in London, I know the true value of a good classic coat, and this year, I have my eye on the Zara trench. Its classic, and gorgeous, and I just have to have one, even if I have to fly to Joburg to get it. I do a lot of walking around the city, parking at least a 10 minute walk from the office, and in the middle of winter, I know that an umbrella will not do the trick, a good coat is the only way to go.

Have a look at the images below for some winter inspiration…

Etro has a beautiful collection this year, with various wrap influences

OK, this one from Jaeger may be a little much for South Africa, but I still love it!

I am totally in LOVE with this Rodarte floor length coat I found on the Vogue website – truly breathtaking!

Even the Hollywood A listers love a good classic

Till next time xx
