MY COATS FOR FALL & WINTER

Hello there!
I feel kinda sucky at the moment, because I’m pretty sick. Yesterday I was totally fine, but today I woke up with a soar throat and feeling like crap. And unfortunately I have a shitload of homework + blogging (okay that’s not unfortunate) to do today, so feeling under the weather at the moment is not the best timing. One of the most important things when it comes to preventing getting sick, is wearing a good coat, especially during the colder months. That’s why I thought it would be pretty legit to talk about my fall & winter coats collection. If you’re interested in my stash, keep reading!

The first coat that I’m going to show you is this camel coat from Forever 21. I have to say, I’m totally obsessed with it. I love the camel colour. I think it looks nice with my complexion and it matches my hair, haha! It has a bit of a oversized/boyish shape, which makes it a bit less formal if you know what I mean. Don’t take me wrong, this coat is really classy and definitely a good bet when you’re going to a nice dinner or something, but it’s not as formal as your regular trench. I initially thought that oversized coats would look good on me, because I’m petite, but I guess I was wrong, ’cause it looks pretty good on me! This coat is definitely perfect for fall, but I don’t know if I will be able to wear it in the winter. Winters here in Holland are freezing :(.

Next up is my newest addition: this fur coat from Topshop. How absolutely stunning is the fur of this coat? I just can’t get over it, it looks so realistic (no worries tho, it’s fake). It’s also really soft and cosy, which makes me want to cuddle with myself 24/7. Yes, that sounds weird, but trust me, if you wore this coat, you probably would do the same. This coat is also the warmest coat I own. The hairs of the fur are relatively long, which means that the coat will absorb heat better > making you warmer. That’s why real fur is always warmer than fake fur!

This coat is more of a transistional coat, because it’s almost as thin as a blazer. It’s perfect for those warm fall days, but it’s waaaay too cold during the winter. It’s this oversized blazer/coat from Pull & Bear that I got in the sale last summer in Barcalona. It has an interesting texture going on, because it’s knitten with different colours of thread. It looks grey, but it actually has hints of white, blue and brown in it. I think this gives it an unique touch. I also love how slouchy it is. It’s the perfect coat to throw on over an outfit!

Now onto the last coat! I bought this coat last winter, but I’m still obsessing over how cute it is. It’s this dark chocolate brown furry coat from H&M. Although I already have a furry coat, I think they differ enough to keep both of them (and if you don’t agree with me: yolo!). The fur of the Topshop coat is long, while the fur of this coat is more fluffy. I feel like a teddybear wearing it, haha. I think the chocolate brown colour is not as typical when it comes to fall or winter coats. Although it doesn’t match my hair, I think the contrast is really pretty.
winter fall coats on Make A Gif
Because I always get nice comments on gifs and I haven’t made a gif in a while, I thought this blogpost was a good opportunity to make one ;).
And those were all of my fall & winter coats! You’ve probably noticed two things: I don’t have any black coats and I haven’t featured any leather jacket. Well true that. The only black coat that I have is actually my leather jacket, but I mostly wear it during the spring and summer. Same counts for my burgundy leather jacket. So you will be seeing those two when spring and summer are here again! It’s kinda funny, ’cause when I was younger, I would only have one coat for the whole year. I always ended up hating it at one point during the winter and search desperately for a good replacement, which I usually couldn’t find, because all the cute coats were already sold out. Now I own a couple of coats and if I get bored with one of them, I just switch things up. Much more practical! Anyways, I hope you enjoyed reading about my favourite coats for fall & winter. What kind of coats do you like to wear in the colder seasons? Let me know in the comments below!
