*NOT JUST FOR MUMS
I'm going to do a series of posts on coats - there are so many different styles around this season and anything goes. It depends on your budget, situation, what you like and your coat requirements as to what type you should go for.
I've divided them up into different coat categories:
THE MUM COAT
THE FAKE FUR
THE SMART COAT
First up is the classic winter MUM COAT. If you are on maternity leave at the moment or you are going to be spending a lot of time out and about in all weathers this winter then this is the coat you'll need.
The Classic Mum Coat is practical and has to:
Have a hood
Preferably it has to cover your bum and the top of your legs
Be durable and hard wearing
You have to like it - you will be wearing it a lot
My coat is by super cool snowboarding brand Burton (£130). I am a massive fan of Burton - their clothes and products always have such great attention to detail, are great quality and because they are a winter sports brand they really understand technically what fabrics work the best in cold weather.
Here are a few others that match the MUM COAT CRITERIA:
