Friday Finds - Classic Coats

Style Eyes Fashion Blog has now moved to Style Eyes Ethical Fashion Blog. I look forward to seeing you there.

Everyone is talking about classic winter coats and everyone seems to want one, including me. I learnt my lesson buying a cheap coat last year which is now no good for anything. This year I want to invest in a really good quality coat to last. The great thing about a classic coat is that it is really versatile and unlikely to go out of fashion so I will be able to wear it for years to come. In terms of colour I am stil undecided on whether to choose a black, navy, grey or camel coat.

Fiamma said...

I like the Alia Coat by Coast (not yet being sold) the most! looks very stylish and classic!

P.S. Rain ruins my shoes as well that's why in the fall I spend almost all of my money on taxis... I just love my shoes too much ;)

THank you for the sweet comment! I love this post, Camel is THE COLOR!! I still have to get a camel coat this year but it is so hot here in Texas, I will only get to wear it for a month or so!

Love the first coat and the beige/cream one with the black belt that's lovely I'd wear that.

Thank you for commenting on my blog :) xx

Sadly, I live in Southern California where the last thing you EVER need is a winter coat. Though I would love a red one a la Blair Waldorf's from Gossip Girl!! :)

It's definitely all about a great coat for the winter, I've seen the sweetest sailor inspired one but have so far resisted buying it, especially as it's so overdone!

Ooh I love coats! Your classic picks included so many on-trend camel numbers. I've been eyeing a red Soia & Kyo peacoat to splurge on myself.

Leia said...

Love your selection! The Coast coat is my fave!
