Muted Coloured Coat

Pants: Sportsgirl 
Boots: Zara (similar)
Bag: Proenza Schoulder Classic PS11

 I don't wear much colour, especially when it comes to outerwear as I find neutral colours much more versatile, and when you're spending a lot of money (usually which coats are), you'd want to be able to wear it as much as possible right?

Contradictory to what I just said, after spending hours in front of my computer bookmarking different options, as well as spending a whole day in the city, searching different stores for a grey coat, I found this 'mushroom' coloured one (or so the tag says). It's a muted colour and makes the outfit that little bit more feminine, which you sometimes need when you've got too much leather or black in one outfit. The vest/turtleneck lookalike attached inside the coat also has been perfect for Melbourne's weather so far, which has been way too cold, not to mention windy for my liking. So, right now the warmer my clothes are, the better.

Winter Wardrobe

After a good couple of hours of pulling off everything off my clothes rack and reorganising things into categories so getting dressed wouldn't be such a long process, I've managed to get all my Winter coats and jackets onto one rack and my most worn tops onto another (black and white how surprising). 

My outerwear items for Winter are:
 1. A leather jacket
(Mine is from Topshop, similar here, here and here
2. A warm coat suitable for more formal occasions
(Mine is from Zara, similar here and here)
3. A denim jacket 
(I have a cropped fitted one by Ziggy, and another oversized vintage one)
4. A warm coat with a relaxed fit 
(because let's be honest, some coats aren't that comfortable as your arms are often restricted. Mine is from Zara yet again..) 
6. A long, black cardigan
(mine is from H&M, something similar here and here

For accessories, scarves will be your best friend as will boots which can comfortably get you around for a whole day without blisters. I've fallen victim to boots that look deceivingly comfortable, until you're putting bandaids on your ankles 3 hours later. So my tip is to invest in leather boots and wear a heel height you're comfortable with.
