Have you thought about topping up your wardrobe with any new autumn/winter fashion buys yet? It’s tricky I know, when some days (like this weekend) have been quite warm and sunny. Consequently, I’m still plugging for crisp, cotton shirts, lighterweight trousers and no socks (while I can). And this little ensemble from Great Plains sums up what I love about this brand; classic staples and interesting prints that work around the clock. These trousers would go from office to night out easily and still look great with a chunky knit and trainers at the weekend.
But I think what we really need to talk about here is the coat. More importantly, have you got the coat yet? The one you want to invest in for the season, the one that will see you right through winter (and still feel fresh come next spring ideally). Well, might I suggest this lovely lilac number for consideration? First of all, lilac – brighter than grey but more wearable than pink – is a mightily underestimated colour. I genuinely think it suits every skin/hair colouring and looks really good with all those winter neutrals we’re grabbing from our wardrobes right now. And that cocoon shape is still the sartorial equivalent of a duvet-cum-hug as far as I’m concerned!
So if I’ve managed to convince you, perhaps you’d like to win one for yourself? I’ve teamed up with Great Plains to offer one of my readers the Kitty cocoon coat (in a choice of lilac or mustard if you prefer), so you’ll be all set for winter. Just fill in the details below. This giveaway is open to UK and international readers.
Good luck, and remember you can fill in as many options as you like to earn bonus entries!
