In my book there is one thing that makes the onset of winter a little more bearable and that is the prospect of a purchasing a new winter coat. Tartan, baby pink, camel, leopard print, fur, leather- the options this year are endless. However, contrary to what Pinterest may suggest, real life also requires a sensible, fail-safe option for the moment when you need something utterly classic. I have been perfectly content with my faithful vintage United Colours of Benetton (very Sunday School) until last week when Hipanema’s latest offering arrived at AND LONDON HQ. This coat has an elegant, modern twist on the classic and I find that I reach for it every morning, not just on the more formal days which the UCOB was reserved for. This weekend for example, I wore it for a wedding on Saturday and then with my leathers and trainers for brunch on Sunday- dressed up or down, it works with everything.
