The coat of dreams! As soon as I tried on this luxurious suede trench coat, I instantly knew it was going to be my go-to coat this Autumn. It looks and feels expensive, which may sound silly but I find you can just tell from the fit and fabric of certain items, and this coat is one of those.

The only thing I was worried about was how hard it would be to maintain the quality of the suede. I’m a nightmare when it comes to stains and suede is notoriously difficult when it comes to cleaning. But then I discovered it’s made from soft techno suede, which is a new trend in material that looks like a fine suede but is actually much easier to look after and is machine washable. Hurray! That’s one less thing to worry about.

As the Winter chill hasn’t fully made an appearance yet, I’m currently wearing it open with the belt hanging down, but as soon as it gets colder I have the option of drawing it in with buttons and also a tie belt to pull it in nice and cosy.

I’ve styled this look with a black ribbed turtle neck top that fits like a dream (comes in 16 different colours and I want them all!!), an a-line mini skirt and a pair of patent block heels (also comes in a variety of colours).

I love styling contrasting coloured coats over the top of an all-black outfit. It allows the coat to become the focus point, and rightly so!
