Trending now - autumn coats

The warm summer days are almost over and autumn is fast approaching, and with that comes a brand new fashion season. One of the advantages of autumn's cold weather means you have the perfect excuse to buy a new coat. Having the perfect autumn coat has the ability to transform your look and bring your outfit right up to date. 

Trending now
there are two options to choose from when picking your new autumn coat:

Trend 1- this is the more feminine and softer approach to autumn outerwear. Coats are crafted of soft, fuzzy textures like fur, wool and even leather, in neutral girlish hues- think baby pink, camel, cream, beige and hints of grey. This is the more prim and polished look that oozes with femininity and ladylikeness.

Coats are made of tweed, bouclĂ© and wool and are adorned with sleek leather and fur trims.

No matter which trend you choose to follow this autumn one thing remains the same throughout when it comes to outerwear. Whether feminine or, both trends consist of coats made of fuzzy, tactile fabrics with oversized, billowy structures. 
Remember, when purchasing your new autumn coat it's ok to spend a little more than you would for another item of clothing, as you will probably be wearing this quite a lot. Also, to make this a good investment choose something you really like and make sure it coordinates well with most of your autumn clothes. Try and choose a coat that not only looks good but feels comfortable and is practical.

p.s. what do you prefer, the classic printed, striped, checked and wool coat trend or the girly, sleek, fuss-free option?
