As far as winter and Christmas style goes…..you can’t really go wrong with cosy knits, faux fur, tartan, polo-necks, boots and coats! I have a slight obsession with coats – I think its because I’ve lived in Dubai so long – that I have a huge desire to buy and wear them all the time when I’m home! So this blog post is about a winter and Christmas look combining a bit of faux fur, tartan and of course another coat…..this time the cape-coat.
I purchased this fab cape coat quite recently in Penney’s/Primark……and every time I wear it, I get a couple of “where did you get it” questions? It actually looks more expensive than the €28 I paid for it as the quality is quite good with a heavy-weight material, hidden zip-feature, pockets, silver-plated buttons and panelling. It’s also a cape that is very transitional taking you from Autumn to Winter (with extra layers) and onto Spring.
I’ve teamed it with a pair of tartan trousers which I bought last winter in River Island……they were actually part of a suit but I thought I would probably get more wear out of the trousers on their own. I also love tartan this time of year especially as there’s something cosy and ‘Christmassy’ about it and it can look gorgeous on a night out with a pair of patent stilettos or casual with flat boots or shoes.
I’ve mentioned these patent black H&M boots along with this gorgeous black textured-leather bag from Dunnes in a previous blog post – read here – and again I’ve worn them both so much this winter as they just go with everything and quite on-trend at the moment!
The faux fur collar is from H&M and I absolutely love it – it can literally be draped over any coat, jacket or wooly jumper and completely change up the look! It can also be worn over a beautiful party dress as a glam accessory for a night-out! Definitely a must-have accessory this Winter.
The black faux fur collar which I have teamed with the cape in this pic above is from Penney’s/Primark and a complete steal at €9 – it would have been rude of me not to buy it ha, ha! Again, a fab little accessory to throw over your Winter woolies, coats and add a bit of drama to an evening gown.
