The bomber jacket appeared back on the fashion radar a couple of years ago and has slowly become a style staple again. With every Fashion Editor and street-style star worth their salt wearing one, it’s definitely the jacket to be seen in now. Here are a few of my current high-street favourites:

With the final days of the September sunshine over, it’s time to turn our attention to one of our biggest wardrobe investments of the year - our winter coat. I have to say I’ve got a thing for outerwear, which is why I love autumn/winter style. You could be wearing the simplest of outfits, but add a great coat and it just feels all the more special. 

So, what to choose? There are the obvious classics which I think everyone woman should have in her wardrobe and which I’ve got in mine. The camel coat, grey overcoat, the classic trench, and the perfect parka. 

For those of you that like your coat to include some print I think animal print is always a good addition, as is tweed, plaid or check. Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean your coat has to be dark and dreary, so don’t be afraid to go for one in a bright colour. Just make sure you choose the right colour for your skin tone and one that will compliment the clothes in your wardrobe. As I mentioned in my blog ‘Seeing Red’ I’ve bought myself a scarlet red coat recently, which will work with all the muted tones and animal prints I have in my wardrobe. 

It’s going to be one of your most worn items over the coming months and the first thing people see, so whatever you choose make sure it fits well and makes you feel great. Oh, and keeps you warm!

Gone are the days when trainers were worn solely by those that go to the gym. With the rise of the Sports Luxe trend, trainers have slowly become a wardrobe staple for the fashion conscious. They are certainly a wardrobe staple for me, which is why they are one of my Wardrobe Hero’s. The right pair of trainers can elevate your look in an effortless way, not to mention that they are incredibly comfortable - which is why I spend most of my time in them! Stylish and comfortable, what’s not to love?
