NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The ASOS Coat

Now, I don't know about you, but ever since Millie Mackintosh stepped out in her leather sleeved khaki number in the last series of MIC, I've been a bit of a PU sleeve hoarder. My most recent obsession being slightly more winter appropriate than khaki military jackets or flimsy blazers. This my friends is the ASOS studded trench coat with PU sleeves. On my tiny 5ft self it appears quite long, but it's nothing my trusty heeled Chelsea boots can't fix.

The material itself is quite lightweight, bar a small amount of padding at the shoulders, but it keeps me warm on those chilly autumn/winter days. Freezing windy days are a no go though - I found this out the hard way when photographing the coat! The colour is slightly different from my normal winter coats, a nude/stone colour instead of the standard blacks and navies makes a nice little change, and an all black outfit is where this baby really shines.

I own more coats than you can count on both hands, so I can't promise this will be my one and only love (I even have my eye on two other little beauties that you can find here and here). For a heavy £75, this isn't something you can simply pick up on a whim (unless you're a coat fiend like myself). But if you think this is "the one" for you, then you can find it here.

  7. I absolutely adore this jacket, when you posted it in a video last week I was in love. I wanted to cry when asos offered 25% off because it would have been my first purchase if I could have afforded it. You've got a timeless jacket there!
