My style is cyclical; I’d like to say that it’s independent of trends but that would be untrue. I’m influenced by the zeitgeist, however I won’t wear something just because it’s fashionable. I know what suits me and I’ll stick to that regardless. The current boho mood is right up my street, however I know that this is a phase and I’ll move on sooner or later. The floaty bohemian vibe calls for something chic and tailored to ground the look. A classic coat is particularly handy for this, but it’s also a sound investment that will look good for years to come. I bought the coat in the image above from French Connection many years ago, and every fall it comes in useful. These are my current favourites available in stores now.
