One of my favourite things about Winter is getting to layer up and wear cosy coats. I always buy at least one new coat every year and usually, they're a neutral colour like black, grey or camel. However, I decided to branch out a little bit this year and add a bit of colour to my Winter coat selection. As soon as I spotted this mauve tailored coat on the Missguided website, I knew it had to be mine. I actually already own it in nude but I fell in love with this colour and thought it would be a nice statement piece to add to my wardrobe.
Since it arrived a couple of weeks ago, it's been my go to coat and it actually goes with way more than I was expecting. I thought it would be one of those pieces I'd only get chance to wear now and again but the pastel colour is pretty versatile and goes with loads of items in my wardrobe. I especially like it paired with grey - the colours compliment each other really well. I decided to pair it with this cute grey roll neck dress for this shoot, which is also a recent addition from Missguided - yes, I like their website a lot. I love the detailing around the bottom of the dress - I'm a big fan of the whole lace-up detailing trend and this is a nice take on that and subtle enough to wear casually on a day to day basis or dress up for an evening out.
Another reason I love this coat is because of the tailored and structured style - it's one of those pieces I instantly feel smart and sophisticated in. I've even worn it with a simple jumped read jeans and it instantly transforms a basic casual outfit into a classy and well thought out outfit, even if I literally just threw it on without much thought. What's even better is that it actually keeps me warm as well as looking good so what's not to love about it?! I know it's going to be warn all Winter long.
To finish the look, I popped on my current favourite black ankle boots from Public Desire which are so comfortable and go with absolutely everything - such a must have! I also wore my Desi Perkins Quay sunglasses because you know, sunglasses just make every outfit look cooler, right?!
