Yes, it’s still scorching with August heat here in Jersey, but you always have to be a step ahead. I don’t want to wait until I actually have to wear an old coat to go out and shop for a new one, and neither do you! We want to have it ready for the season. I don’t mind splurging on a coat, and I don’t think anyone should if your getting quality. And if you find a bargain for a good quality coat, kudos to you!
I usually try to buy a coat that’s a brighter color, but still able to go with different palettes. But you can basically do any color according to your style, as long as you choose the right shade of that color. For example in blue, you can do a navy blue or indigo, which I think is gorgeous. Yellow would look best in a mustard shade, and would work with a black/white scarf wonderfully. Green looks great as a slightly darker yet vibrant emerald, just don’t wear it with anything yellow. I would’ve had to get it tailored because I’m petite, but it’s worth it if it’s a great coat!

1. Top Shop – The fitted body is amazing, and the neck and shoulder give a great touch. I don’t know about the quality of it, though, because I’ve never ordered from Top Shop.
