Whether slim fit, leopard, cocoon or parka, there’s no escaping the fact that you’re going to be wearing a coat this winter.
So it might as well be a good one.
London’s street slickers have been wrapping up in an inspiring array of coats, and wearing them in unexpected ways: to wit, see the trench paired with bare legs and stomping Steampunk boots, the Sherlock Holmes parka with a pair of converse, the Fifties mohair cocoon paired with boldly patterned pants.
Reminding us all that whatever coat we choose this winter, it ain’t what you choose, it’s the way that you do it. That’s what gets results.
