I’m on the look out for a new winter coat. Oh yes, I am! Some (Alex) might say that I don’t need another one to add to my collection, but I’m sure they (he) are just saying that because we have a bit of a lack of space in the house. I’ll find room, don’t you worry – there’s always room for more clothes!
Winter coats are in abundance in the shops at the moment, but unfortunately I can’t say that many are grabbing my attention. It’s always a tricky process buying a coat when you are vertically challenged, but it’s particularly tedious when your usual go-to website has such a dismal selection… Have you seen what ASOS have on offer for petites this year? They seriously need to up their fashion game, that’s for sure! The rest aren’t much better either. Sad times.
Faux fur, puffer, parka and camel coats seem to be a keen trend for 2014 – Also XXL coats, which is obviously a complete fail for me. I must say I am often drawn to a fluffy, soft number and have seen a few faux fur coats I quite like. I wore my Michael Kors Puffer to death last year and it was a godsend – so warm and comfy, for my late nights working outside on the club guest lists. I’ll probably have to rely on it again this year, but I’d love to find a new coat to wear during the day. Now I’m wearing jeans again, I think a bit of re styling needs to be done… good excuse eh?!
Anyway, below are a few of my winter coat picks for 2014 – a mixture of different styles for all occasions. Let me know which is your favourite, or whether you have seen any other winter coats that I should be casting my eyes over.

Oh, and a little word from Charity Hands On London – they need your old winter coats. Read on HERE
