Three Of The Best:: Coats

Things are cooling down, I've packed my summer wardrobe away and brought out my winter woollies. I am ready for the big chill.  Bring it on! 

I know. You're sitting there thinking: "What the heck PMM? How can you possibly love winter?"

I do! I defy you! I love rugging up. Well we can talk about that in the thick of the winter of discontent, but for now, roll on tights and scarves. 

I've been schlepping around the interwebs and found three of my favourites for this season.

from left to right: 

Bassike Cashmere Coat Black $895:: It's an investment, yes, but cashmere. Cashmere. Ah sweet cashmere. And fully lined with leather sleeves? And that shape and length? YES YES YES! It's a forever coat, classic cut, can't go wrong with black - and it has sass. Those sleeves say: don't mess with me, while the rest of it whispers - I'm hella cool, and definitely don't mess with me. 

Sussan Lady Coat $169.95:: I have this same cut from last year - different fabrication. I am here to tell you - it was worn almost every day of the season because I loved it so much. A really, really great length, and the cut is feminine and flattering. I love the shorter sleeve too - couple it with a bright, or a clashing pattern - et voila. Instant style cred. 

Gorman Untitled Mountain Jacket $299:: Have you ever worn a quilted jacket? It's like wearing a quilt, like wearing a hug, oh man, it feels so damn good. I love this simple, drop shoulder jacket, perfect for layering up - looks good for weekend and office-wear.  

Which is your favourite?

I would look like an absolute dick in all of these, but you've inspired me to go find a cashmere hoodie! Xx

i would like to think I could pull off the cashmere - would last until someone smeared yoghurt on me.
