COATS TO COVET
While fashion fads may come and go, there are some items, like a winter coat, that are as close to being timeless and enduring as clothes can ever be. Personal experience has taught me it is wiser to buy fewer, more expensive pieces that will still be as relevant in ten or more years time, than a fast fashion quick fix. There are four styles of winter coats that I believe are almost indispensable: the down filled parka; a stylish tailored coat; a chunky coat/cardigan; and a rather luxurious, cosy shearling. I'm not suggesting you invest in them all in one season, but gradually build your wardrobe until it has one of the following in each category that works for you and your lifestyle.
