A winter coat must have a pink reversible shearling delight

One of the perks of being a personal shopper is I get to see everything that comes into store on a daily basis (it’s a hard life) .

Imagine my delight when I spotted this little beauty the other day, a reversible pink shearling/faux suede coat by Maison De Nimes (exclusive to House of Fraser) at a price point to keep everyone happy.

I particularly love the shearling side but I will be wearing mine both ways over everything. I do mean EVERYTHING as I love this coat.

15 Winter Coats that will make cold days so much better….

Last winter I took the plunge and bought a wool winter coat for the first time in many years and I loved it. I am a complete Parkaholic and I can prove it but even i know you can only wear so many.

This year my thoughts are already turning to stylish winter coats and there are so many to choose from!

As you all know Isabel Marant is always top of my list for just about everything and the coat that is becoming an obsession is obviously by my favourite Parisian fashion brand.

It is getting cold outside……my top ten winter coats

Around this time every year I make the statement “This year I am going to buy a proper winter coat” and every year I don’t. I buy a variety of capes, ponchos and unlined wool coats none of which ever keep me warm. This year it is going to different as I have already fallen for a coat by Hobbs which I tried in store yesterday.

I was very surprised when I tried it on as I normally feel small and frumpy in coats but this is perfection on me. (both open and closed)

There are obviously many more out there I have chosen ten of my favourites, so whether you want statement or conservative there is one for you.
