If like me you have been living in a bit of a cave far away from learning about what we should be wearing this coming season, then you will have missed anyone and everyone wearing suede coats. It's taken me some time to realise you don't have to be hippy to pull these off; I've seen lots of people wearing them in town with blue denim (amazing colour mix), simply grey sweaters and pumps.
I rarely highlight one place in particular, but one store that shouldn't be ignored if you're looking for a suede coat is Mango. This shorter one is perfect (just replace your denim jacket with this for winter), if you're after more of a duster coat (think "dressing gown for outdoors") this is fantastic, and last but really not least the double breasted one all the fash-mags have raved about, and I've found it for £50 off, here.
Other super ones include this beauty from Topshop, love the 70s pockets and this slightly deeper toned one from Miss Selfridge. Having tried a million of them on, I have to say they are far more flattering than you'd think and because they have proper weight to them in the fabric they fit a shape really well. I am paranoid about my arms, and they all seemed to really slim them down.
If you're after a darker coloured one then there are lots of options, but for very different prices! If you have won the lottery, this Gucci one is possibly something I'd consider losing limbs for. This ASOS one is the other end of the scale and super cheap, love the grape-like colour. If you buy one thing this month, make it one of these…
