Coats – My Top 10

For the last post of the month, I thought I would share with you my favourite coats of the Fall/Winter 2013 season.

Plus it gives me the perfect excuse to spend the day scouring photos of all the runway shows and shopping site! Here are my top 10 …

Burberry Prorsum

A classic trench with a new season twist. The camel colour keeps the coat looking chic while the heart print adds a bit of fun to the look without being tacky.

How can you not love a coat covered in hearts?



I love everything about this coat – the colour, the A-line silhouette, the collar. The simplicity of the main coat allows the amazing collar to stand out without being overwhelming.

Alice + Olivia


This cropped, boxy blazer is all about the fabric – the stunning print in vibrant colours would instantly add interest to any outfit. Dressed up with a skirt or dress, or dressed down with jeans and a t-shirt, so pretty and so versatile.



This coat is opulence, tradition and warmth all rolled into one. The shearling sleeves and collar are bang on trend for the season, but won’t date. It is a stunning twist on the Pea Coat we know and love.



This is the kind of coat I imagine myself wearing to dinner at a fabulous restaurant. Classy and sophisticated but also beautifully fitted with a bit of interest. That slash of white in the collar would make sure I got noticed by all the right people.

Alice + Olivia


Overall this coat is fairly simple in its styling, but there is something about that fabric that calls to me. Maybe its the colour, maybe its the texture. I don’t know what it is, but I do know that I love it.

Zac Posen

I am not usually a massive fan of Zac Posen ( I don’t doubt his talent, he is a great designer, just not normally my style), but I do love this jacket. The dart detailing and    bow-esque front are stunningly quirky and the shoulders are just the right side of sharp.

A classic with a twist.


McQ 2

Another McQ creation, just as opulent but slightly more restrained. I love a good peplum, and with the brand’s background in tailoring, you know the fit of this jacket is going to be exquisite.

Carolina Herrera

I actually loved everything about the Carolina Herrera Fall Collection, but this coat was a particular standout. Just the right amount of fox fur paired with the classically coloured chevron knit creates a striking, sophisticated coat.



A classic double-breasted coat with a bit of brocade can go along way. The bronze-y gold detailing updates the preppy look that J.Crew is famous for and would give anyone an excuse to buy another coat.

FYI – since it is the end of the season a lot of these fabulous coats are on sale right now. Just sayin’
