Winter Outerwear

You know that horrible cold feeling that you get during winter? When it's really cold and you don't know what to wear to keep warm? Truth must be said, during these months I sometimes don't care what I wear as long as it's keeping me warm. Hence, I have a long coat which is also known as "the Tesco jacket". Don't worry, it was not bought in Tesco and was actually quite expensive but it's so big and puffy that I look like a bear in it which is why I only wear it to go grocery shopping amongst other boring activities =) Anyway, the genius Christopher Bailey has designed beautiful sheepskin jackets that not only look stylish but will definitely keep you warm. Imagine wearing Uggs, but on your whole body and not just the feet. Mmmm..The play of proportions gives a sheepskin jacket a contemporary feel with the oversized collars that come into a contrast with the cropped cut. It's a juxtaposition of the feminine and the masculine that works so well in an outerwear piece. Today I was in Topshop and they brought in the winter collection (which by the way is very exciting) and guess what? They had very similar looking jackets there for a humble £300 price tag. Very attractive, especially considering the fact that the Burberry pieces will set you back around £2000. You just gotta love Topshop!
