This season is all about texture – cord, velvet, tweed and general fluffiness are all officially back in. Checked coats are top of the list. It’s a classic preppy look and I needed little prompting to give it a go.
After a bit of searching, I’ve found a good one. It’s by New Look, who I’m consistently loving at the moment. It’s simple and chic – and a steal at £39.99. Considering the price, it’s surprisingly thick too.
For easy autumnal style, wear your checked coat with a bold knit. This mustard coloured jumper is another great New Look buy.
And while we’re on the subject of embracing texture, this week I have rejoined the fringe club!
It’s a fact universally acknowledged that as soon as you’ve grown out a fringe, you want another one. It gets me every time. It goes so well with the whole seventies vibe going on at the moment. My hair needed a boost, so adding new texture was very tempting.
My hair is very thick and wavy, so a full-on blunt fringe can be a recipe for disaster. So this time, I’ve compromised on a half fringe. It’s cute and flattering, but can be brushed out of the way. I’m glad to be back in the gang.
I wear: Checked coat, £39.99, New Look
