“Winter is coming” some cosy stylish pieces to keep you warm this fall/ winter- My inspiration has to be Cameron Diaz in “the holiday”

How gorgeous is this coat?! Style and warmth in one piece. They say a coat or jacket can make up any outfit- i am a huge fan

I have some fabulous pieces that i think you will love, i know winter is around the corner and we often leave it until November time to start buying our winter essentials but i have seen some amazing pieces which i know just won’t last until then! 
The first is this lovely coat from River Island, i loved it so much i bought it not only in the white- but tan as well! Naughty i know but i couldn’t resist and at £85 a coat why wouldn’t i?! These are so cosy, soft and warm! I can definitely see myself reaching for them over the next few weeks and months as we move away from autumn/fall and into the bitter cold winter i know we experience both here in the UK and overseas in some European locations and the US. 

The style is timeless, it’s a piece you can reach for year after year, gorgeous long v style collars at the front, with a tiny gold button and finally the lovely tie around the waist! It has that high-end feel to it and definitely is reminiscent of some of the Dior or Gucci coats i’m seeing in the fashion magazines at present. 

My advice is don’t delay- as i am certain these will sell out very soon! Just look how the collars fall- stunning!

Who else was majorly crushing on this Dior jacket worn by the gorgeous Cameron Diaz in the movie “the holiday”

Shearling rocks! My dupe for Cameron Diaz’s Dior number from the holiday, stylish but a fraction of the price 😊

The third and fourth jackets i purchased were very much inspired by the movie- “the holiday” we all remember Cameron Diaz and how she was trecking through the English countryside uber stylish in that gorgeous shearling jacket! Now despite this being a Christian Dior coat im not wanting to part with £1000s just yet. So i went on a mission to find some alternatives which give you that stunning look but at less of a price point… after much searching i found this number above- of all places on very.co.uk it was just over the £150 mark but what you get in return is this gorgeous shearling coat, it has that furry collar that screams luxury, the inside of the jacket is insanely soft, it’s just so snuggly and incredibly warm! Perfect for the winter nights to follow.

Whilst on the site this little shearling aviator number also caught my eye- ok so i went a little OTT with jackets but when you see this one you will fall in love! This will go fantastically well with a pair of jeans, ankle boots and big roll neck jumper! Super cosy and incredibly stylish. A must have for fall/ winter! If you look online this jacket is everywhere, there are alternates, high end items and dupes available everywhere! 

Shearling aviator style jackets are not going away anytime soon. These were everywhere last autumn/ winter and are back again now and it just does not surprise me at all. This one i picked up was from the Rochelle Hulmes line (i didn’t even know she had a fashion line) i loved the style and just had to get it! Not badly priced either visit very.co.uk for more…

There are some amazing dupes both in the likes of primark, river island, asos has so many alternatives and other brands available! Don’t delay, i definitely think this is a winter staple!

    Yes i agree the Cameron Diaz coats and aviator jackets are great and the lapels are one of my favourites on coats. Definitely agree when you see a coat/jacket for winter buy it as it wont be there long someone else always seems to grab it!
