What coats are you wearing for this in between season?
I feel like i have my thick (to hot) winter coat and my thin raincoat.
I need something inbetween.
I have a leather jacket aswell, but it doesnt fasten!! 😂

For work I'm wearing a trench with a light scarf and hat as a compromise. Weekends stump me though. I haven't found any nice casual spring coats this year.

Thats what im struggling with.
Something nice for shopping but cosy for the school run

My bloody winter coat, today.

Snow, ffs!

It's a blizzard outside right now, so tomorrow might be my parka. For the last month or so I've been flipping between leather biker, calf-length trench and denim jacket, sometimes with a leopard print scarf (not a wool one, the woven fabric kind some people wear instead of a necklace).

Leather jacket with scarf depending on the weather. MK down coat when it's raining.

I think i need a trench sort of coat ☺

Started the day in a blazer and sunglasses. Finished in my down filled jacket and a scarf. It's become very windy here.

Nick , I have that same problem with my leather jacket. I think they shrink in the wardrobe over winter.

I bought myself a lovely classic denim jacket a few weeks ago which I'm loving. But I would like a medium weight trench coat too. I can never find one that suits me though sad

I teach so spend a lot of time outside despite the weather. Today I wore a pale grey coatigan with a black trim. I seem to be amassing a few of these coatigan fellas in the boot of my car; they're lovely to chuck on over jeans and can still be smart enough for work.

The light down jackets are great for the changeable weather at the moment you can pay as much or a s little as you like for them and there's every colour going xx

Oohhhh, where do you get a down coat?

bojorojo Mon 24-Apr-17 23:43:01

Just google "down jacket" and loads will pop up. Skinny ones at Michael Kors, and chic ones at Canada Goose and Moncler if you have the money and ones from Tog, Berghaus, Columbia, Jack Wolfskin, Mountain Equipment - absolutely loads!

Trench coats when it's cooler /drizzly.

Short waterproof fleecy lined jacket with hood for toddler walking /gardening.

Dark blue belted cord coat for shopping.

Also got a brown suede jacket which I'm desperate to wear but need to get rid of this pesky weight!

I have been wearing blazers but the winter parka is coming back out today!

silkpyjamasallday Tue 25-Apr-17 07:59:36

I've been struggling with this recently, I often go out in my leather biker with a hoodie underneath when weather is so changeable like this but the sudden cold snap means it's not a warm enough combo.

I have a long camel aquascutum trench but that isn't warm either. Short grey wool coat is too warm, as is my parka jacket. It's a nightmare!

Just thankful I have the pram now to stash extra layers when they become unnecessary. I just had a velvet down filled puffer jacket from Mango arrive this morning so hopefully this will Bridge the gap!

Good thread. It's made me realise I need a trench coat!

Glamorousglitter Tue 25-Apr-17 08:53:52

Blazers and light scarf

Leather jacket and huge scarf - or leather jacket and cape thrown over when it gets much colder

Eyeing my furry gilet that even though I bought 2 years ago I have never managed to successfully add into an outfit !!! <ideas please>

Winter coat - oversized black/ navy combo from all saints, and large cosy woolly two sizes too big but super soft and super warm n cosy (bought when pregnant ) maison scotch coat (keep threatening to donate to charity but it comes in handy when temps drop)

My Michael Kors one is 600 fill down and waterproof. Bloody wish I'd worn it today - it's bleedin freezing here!

Trench coat or leather jacket

nickpic Wed 26-Apr-17 07:26:14

Thanks everyone. Really dont want to have to go back to my big winter coat! Im on the lookout for a nice trench coat (can always layer up underneath!!)

SuckingEggs Wed 26-Apr-17 22:45:15

It's 3C here - I'm not putting my winter coat away yet!

calzone Wed 26-Apr-17 22:48:08
