Winter Coats - Phase Eight

Hi everyone!

I was recently contacted by the lovely Charlotte on behalf of Phase Eight asking if I would like to take part in their Style a winter coat blogger competition. You might have read my last post about winter coats for this year, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to show you a few more options and also to enter into the competition :) You can enter the competition yourself, however entries need to be submitted HERE before 4pm today!

I was browsing through the Phase Eight website and found so many gorgeous pieces that I found it really hard to create just one look. So, I did three... One for a casual look ie. shopping, another for work wear, and the last for a night out or party.

If you're going shopping you need to be both comfortable and stylish and I think the Linda Wadded Jacket pulls this off perfectly! I love the variety of textures on the coat, there is the quilted effect and suede look shoulders which are both complimented well by the gold button and zip detailing. For the rest of the outfit, I chose some fitted jeans and a plain long sleeve top. The boots have a small heel to add a bit of glamour, but still look super comfy! Then to finish off I chose the check scarf to tie all the colours in together.

For work, you need something stylish but understated. I chose these grey flared trousers which are ideal for any day at the office as they are so practical and versatile. They are then styled with the Pussybow blouse which is so cute! The black ankle boots again have a small heel but still comfortable, perfect for trudging to work in the rain or light snow when the dreaded winter weather comes! The gorgeous little earrings add some sparkle to the outfit too. The Leila Luxe Collar Coat completes the whole look, its very formal and feminine looking due to the fit and flare, also a bold statement piece to brighten up those dull days!

Finally "It's party time!" I absolutely LOVE this outfit by the way! It's totally my style and something I'd wear if I was attending a party. I'm sure a lot of you will be going to Christmas parties in the upcoming months, whether it be with family, friends or even the works do. So perfect time to get all dressed up! There really are some stunning dresses over at Phase Eight which I'd definitely recommend checking out.

I chose the Fern Faux Fur Coat for this look because its so glamorous and luxurious. Phase Eight say "its the perfect party jacket" they couldn't have said it better! The dress I chose is so pretty with the embroidered lace effect and flared silhouette fit. The deep purple shade is gorgeous too and goes so well with the jewelled black accessories. The tiered drop necklace emphasises the neckline and shape of the dress. I then chose the jewel clutch bag and matching jewel peep-toe shoes to complete the look!

I really hope you enjoyed this post as much as I've enjoyed doing this...I love creating outfit collages! :)
