Hi! Well, its proving a wet June - and as I write this there are thunderstorms, and rain is threatening! So, I thought, I’d turn my attention to macs, and rainwear in general. I just love my red trench from Hobbs - its a few seasons old now, but I just love the colour- especially when the weather is not at its best. Colour is something to bear in mind when choosing a mac or coat - I tend to think that dark colours, are fine for the right occasion, and then a dark coat can always be brightened up with a fab scarf! but when the weather is gloomy - we shouldn’t be!
I’ve picked out a few of my favourites on the high street - they are all in stock as I write, and some are in the sales...Check them out!
Look at this gorgeous coat from Massimo Dutti -It’s described as a technical parka with a hood, and to help nip in that waist, there’s a drawstring too. Hoods are brill , especially if you’re loaded down with shopping or grandchildren, and the heavens open!! A parka is less formal than a trench coat, but it can still look fab.
I love this snakeskin print on this coat from Zara. Its a round necked frock coat, and would look fabulous with black skinny jeans. It is currently reduced from £69.99 down to £49.99. The vertical design, is great for giving that slimming effect - a pop of red would look amazing !
Hobbs have this great trench, and it comes in a variety of colours - Clay, Navy with white topstitching, lilac, gold, and red. It is now reduced from £199 to £169. Its always worth investing in a good coat - then it’ll last!
This is the Luna Waterfall Wrap Coat from Phase Eight it is so light it just hangs beautifully. It’s a linen blend style, which again, is perfect for those warmer days. This is reduced from £139 to £95.
Here’s hoping for those long hot summer days we just long for! But, It’s always nice to have a coat to fall back on when the weather turns!
Let’s look Fabulous!!
