2016 trends: The Military Coat (twinning)

Coats: military coat trend for 2016

I’m back talking fashion again, chatting about more key fashion trends for Autumn/Winter 2016! This is because (lately) I have been doing my hardest to seek them all out for this season and then add them into my own wardrobe, as a busy Mum of two.

So far I’ve shared the bomber jacket, the pleated skirt trend, leopard print and the athleisure trend; all of which I have adapted into my own style to make work for me each day.

A new trend – that I wasn’t actually sure would work for me – is the long military coat. Long coats are SO hot right now and they look amazing. However, as I’m not very tall myself, I wasn’t sure if I could pull this look off. So I gave it a go!

Once again Next have been amazing and sent Lottie and I some matching military navy coats..and once again we are twinning! Lottie and I adore coats; she has definitely inherited my love for them!

I’ve paired my navy military coat (£75) with ripped New Look jeans, new Dune London leopard boots, Topshop sweater (old) and a Mulberry handbag.

Lottie wears her new navy military coat (£33) with new shoes from Vertbaudet and new pink cords from Primark.

In outfit 2 (below): I have put this long coat with my new Topshop trainers, new pink sweater from Primark, ripped Next jeans (old) and a red bag from Topshop (old).

I love this daytime look, I wear this kind of thing a great deal, and I think that the buttoned coat really smartens up my casual outfit.

If you don’t fancy a very long coat this season then there are also plenty of shorter military jackets on the high street that are also gorgeous. I particularly love them in navy, khaki and black.

Do you like this look? Have you got a military coat this season?

Love, Jess x
