ON-TREND OUTERWEAR

Let’s face it ladies, Autumn is well and truly here (although I for one am not complaining about all that gorgeous sunshine over the weekend!), which means it’s time to give some serious thought about your outerwear for the season ahead.  While I’d much rather swan about in a pretty summer dress, buying my autumn/winter coat is still pretty high up on my love-list.  There’s a few trends to follow this season, so whether it’s cosy shearling, girly pastels, heritage checks or a chic cape, these are my on-trend picks for AW15

THE SHEARLING

Let’s be honest, this trend is a tough one to rock without looking like a dodgy second-hand car salesman or seventies-throwback, but this faux shearling coat from Suncoo at ASOS manages to fall just on the right side of chic.

THE PASTEL

For years I bought a trusty black coat for winter each year, but as soon as I left the corporate world colour started coming back into my winter wardrobe and I really regret not doing it sooner. This powder blue cocoon coat from Gray & Willow is super stylish, totally smart enough for work!

THE HERITAGE CHECK

Confession, I’m not a fan of checks or tartan, BUT I can get on board with a bit of houndstooth.  This Marella Picco collarless coat is gorgeous, and currently half-price in the sale. Perfect for Autumn.

THE CAPE

I bought this gorgeous woolen cape from Ted Baker as a panic airport purchase back in the Spring, and of course then the sun came out and I never got to wear it.  I’m looking forward to getting out of the wardrobe for nights out and days when I need a bit of classic style.

THE OVERSIZED COAT

When the winter chill really sets in, a big chunky oversized coat is the ultimate indulgence.  Sophisticated grey, simple style and no fuss, Violeta at Mango get it so right with this style.

THE SUEDE

If you caught my ‘Love Leather‘ post a couple of weeks ago, you’ll know I’m totally having a thing for this material right now. Suede is just leather’s softer, cosier cousin.  Mango have done it again with this gorgeous suede trench-style coat.

Louise

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
