Winter Is Coming

And it's all about the coat

We may be just a few days out from the New Year, but it’s fair to say winter has been pretty tame so far. And while I would have been a little bit excited by a white Christmas, it’s nice not to have to double-up on Uniqlo heat techs whenever I step outside. But like they say, Winter Is Coming. So it’s time to get prepared.

Sale-shopping isn’t usually my jam –  like most of female kind I have a history of too many poorly made purchases (read; ill-fitting shoes and pieces I’ll barely wear once). But I do have one sale-tip up my sleeve; get your winter coat on sale. Because outerwear doesn’t come cheap.

The trick is to go for a classic, a style which you’ll pull out year after year. I’m talking your navy duster coats, your oversized tan coats and your black wrap coats. Thoughtfully constructed, well-tailored, timeless. And at a discount.

So take a few cues from these ladies (and Justin) on the street in London.
