I think this is probably my ideal colour combination for a crisp winters day. Black trousers, grey puffa coat and white top, with a touch of colour provided by the bright blue fake fur snood.
I have had this Armani jeans puffa coat for many years and it has served me well. I tend to buy the best quality I can afford at the time with most of my major coat purchases being made during the sales and the above coat was no exception. Now is a great time to invest in a good quality coat as there are still many months of cold weather to come.
Do you wear real or fake fur. I am a fan of fake fur, it is great fun and can often be found in vibrant colours. I am aware that here in the South of France, when at times there can be a bitterly cold wind, the women are very fond of real fur usually fox or rabbit. I know that in London wearing real fur is definitely a no-no however when I visited Latvia a few years ago every other woman was wrapped up against the Syberian cold in real fur. Who am I to judge?
There are some great puffa coats/jackets and fake fur snoods available in the sales.
John Lewis have a few quilted coats left in the sale.
Uniqlo have some excellent down coats and they are all reduced.
