KAT FARMER’S WINTER STYLE

When it comes to winter dressing, one purchase you want to get right is your coat. You’ll be wearing it every day for months, so choosing a coat that is practical, cosy and makes you look great is worth taking your time over. One person whose fashion advice we always appreciate is fashion blogger from Does My Bum Look 40, Kat Farmer. Here she shares her picks for the best coats and warming accessories of the season

CHECK MATE

“If you're looking for one coat to add an instant lift to your wardrobe then look no further than this belted check wool coat. I can guarantee this will work with all the basics that you already have – the perfect partner to a whole host of neutrals.”

NEW NEUTRALS

The oatmeal overcoat: “The winter alternative to a blazer – lightweight but slightly more substantial – which is perfect for work and play, this will easily take you into spring too. Team now with leather trousers and knitwear plus classic winter accessories – I also love this style of coat over midi dresses and ankle boots. A slogan tee or knit and wide-leg trousers would work as well.”

The on-trend trainers: “No I'm not actually going running in these! All hail the new trainer which we can now legitimately wear during the day when there isn't a hint of exercise happening. They may take some getting used to, but maybe the fact that they’re ludicrously comfortable might tempt you? It’s like wearing your slippers out. Honestly we will all be wearing these come next year – get ahead of the game now.”

INTO THE BLUE

“If you're anything like me and spend most winter weekends on the freezing cold sidelines watching your kids do sport, you’ll want a coat that keeps you really warm, as well as looking stylish. Cashmere accessories are a must and an oversized biker is perfect for layering knitwear underneath.”

GO-WITH-ALL GREY

“Pure luxury in a coat that you will have in your wardrobe forever. It's not often that you find a coat that's a modern classic like this – you could wear over jeans or over a dress to a black-tie function. This elegant and versatile shade of charcoal simply goes with everything. The texture of the coat elevates it to a very special piece you'll want to wear every day.”
