outerwear as ...... Outerwear!

Gone are the days of worrying about ruining a gorgeous outfit with an ugly, swamping coat as this season's offerings are fabulous and anyone can find the perfect jacket for them whatever shape, size or style you are!
Alongside the standard, clean tailored, double breasted jackets that we all know and love we have been offered the likes of shearling lined aviator jackets, faux fur coats!!, cocoon jackets, leather bikers and did I mention it is now acceptable to wear capes!
Personally I shall be hunting for a fur coat to wrap up in and look glamorous at the same time! Chanel has definately shown me the way although I do not think I shall be going as far as the yetti boots! For those with a little more edge there are some fabulous biker jackets and shearling aviator jackets up for grabs on the high street in topshop and h&m. The soft fur (whilst keeping out the cold) gives a delicate aspect to the bite of a biker and looks like the perfect balance!

Moving on to the most exciting thing in outerwear this season,  the cape! yes we may drape ourselves without shame in whatever style of cape takes our fancy, although I am thinking it may take a while for this trend to really take off!
The late, great Alexander McQueen!
So get hunting and find yourself a gorgeous jacket (or cape!) to ward off the cold, althoug for your own goood please stay away from the down jackets, they are not flattering for anyone!
