Posh Picks: Winter Coats and Jackets

April 20, 2016

It seems a bit weird to be talking about warm coats and jackets when Adelaide is due to hit 28 degrees again today and it feels more like the start of summer than the approach to winter but don't let it fool you, brace yourself, insert Game of Thrones meme here, etc.

For me, the struggle is real when it comes to winter outerwear.

As I mentioned here, a combination of petite frame, short arms and a big bust combine to make it difficult to find a coat style that doesn't look like a dressing gown, straightjacket or similar yet still provides adequate warmth when it gets seriously chilly.

Okay, by global standards, Adelaide is hardly the Arctic but you know, it's all relevant so when I say "chilly", I mean around 15 degrees on average. Anything below that is referred to as "freezing".

Anyhizzle, I was lucky enough to nab this lovely raspberry-coloured fit and flare coat from ASOS a few years back. This official photo doesn't do it justice either, it's more skirty. I absolutely love wearing it, and often get nice comments.

Now this is all well and good but as if one coat is enough!

It's hard to go past classic black but wearing a pop of colour can really help lift your mood on a grey day.

Don't forget scouring international sites for end-of-their-winter clearance bargains.
