R shows us the best of A/W14's coat offerings on the High St
It's finally reached that wonderful (if a little expensive) time of year when you're allowed to buy yourself a new winter coat. Me and my lovely flat mate have a slight problem with coats, by slight, we both have between 10-15 each. Our hallway cupboard is now home to a rail full of coats as our bedrooms just couldn't fit them all in! Despite this I still approach every Autumn with renewed excitement at the prospect of buying a new coat.
Now you may argue, but each of my coats serve a clear purpose and I still wear the ones I bought ten years ago to this day - this is thanks to planning, careful spending and investing in quality.
This year I am lusting after a maxi wool coat to drape dramatically over luxuriously printed and loosely fitted dressed with a mannish bottle-green brogue just poking out. *sigh*
However their is a multitude of coat options out there to seriously tempt you - I've grouped a few together to help you navigate the highs and lows of new season outerwear.
