The Pretty Little Thing autumn winter coat edit

Autumn winter is when i come alive (in fashion terms anyway), i spend the whole of the summer willing on colder weather so i can stock up on new knits, boots and most importantly ..coats and jackets. December is fast approaching and the thought of going out without a coat on is long gone, so as every outfit i'll wear from now up until march will be hidden underneath outwear, i can't think of a better excuse to devote a whole post to my favourite part of fashion. 

All of the coats and jackets in this post are from Pretty Little Thing which is one of my favourite online shopping destinations already (i'm signed up to unlimited next day delivery) so it was a dream come true when they gave me the coats for this post.

Swishy, slightly slouchy, and the perfect extra layer. I thought i'd start with a jacket rather than a coat just because starting with a smaller layer makes more sense in my brain really. This camel mac jacket is the perfect jacket to throw on over a jumper and jeans and look a lot more put together than you actually are, which i feel will be a reoccurring theme in this post. There are still days where the temperature is a few degrees warmer and you don't really need a big thick coat, and that is when i'll reach for this. 

You won't find me without a coat anymore (i mean we are nearly in December) but on days when you don't need to be bundled up like the Michelin Man, a light weight layer is just perfect. Also the colour of this, aka not being plain black, lifts an outfit and stops it looking too dark.

We obviously had to take a trip to the Christmassy Peggy Porschen and i thought my coat fitted pretty well with the pink decor .. so there you have it, a few extra coat and cake snaps.

It wouldn't be a winter coat collection without a black number, i used to just get one basic black coat every autumn but i've mixed up my choice a little bit more this time around with this Black Longline double breasted coat. Longline coats really used to scare me, i'm 5ft2 and i was terrified of looking like i had been swallowed whole but i this coat is pretty perfect. As soon as i saw it i knew i loved it but i was still apprehensive about the length, but i bit the bullet and picked it and i couldn't be happier. 

It has a slight military vibe with the double breasted buttons and the structured shoulders stop it from looking oversized or sloppy, and it skims the calves in the perfect place - especially when i've got a heeled boot on.

I think wearing a long coat makes it a lot easier to get away with wearing skirts in winter too, less weird looks like "does she know what temperature it is?"..

This long black coat and statement boot look has been my go to ever since i got it, you could literally wear anything under this and still look like you've made a serious style effort, and that is why i love coats so much.

Finally we have (possibly) my favourite out of the bunch, this grey check double breasted coat. This coat is good quality, the type of coat your parents think is a sensible buy but while still being stylish. I'm not here for freezing in the name of fashion so i'm constantly looking for weather appropriate buys and this is top of my list. Like the first coat because this isn't just a black piece of outerwear it brings something more to the table, the check detail lifts the whole look of what you're wearing.

This perfectly hits the knee area so it isn't longline but it's definitely a full coat and leaves enough room for thick winter jumpers underneath too. This coat is the type of coat you rely on, you know it's there, it'll go with pretty much whatever you're wearing and it'll keep you warm while still looking good. 

I've dressed it down in this post with (quite shiny) trainers, jeans and a striped top which also happens to be PLT, but i reckon you could add heeled boots to this an immediately have a pretty smart look.

It wasn't planned this way but on the day of posting this PLT launched 25% off everything, including all of the coats in this post with code: HURRY25. Black Friday deals will be the end of me and my bank account, I'm not complaining.
