The classic winter coats and boots that will never date

Winter coat and boots are hands down the most hardworking items in your wardrobe. Seeing as we Brits (and a whole swathe of the northern hemisphere) spend 11 months of the year under a cloud, they’re the pieces worn all day, every day. That new dress is rendered useless when it’s your coat and boots that you’ll live in.

Seeing as we’re bundled up in a coat so often, we better make it a good one. The boots? You best love them. In this area I am prepared to part with some cash to get it right. Buying a little less and saving for one or two classics is my motto here. Farewell trendy lime green coat trimmed with fur that every Scandi blogger is swanning about in.

I am heading for the wool trenches, the pea coats and the giant belted numbers in muted tones. My boots need to be comfortable to walk in and survive the grey sludge that can pass for snow in London. They need to be easy to wear with everything but also make me excited to slip ’em on each morning. Here are my top picks for this winter (and beyond).

Hello! Love the first drape collar coat. Do you have an updated link for that? Can’t find it on the company’s website. Many thanks.
