When September starts to make way for October its a good time to begin pondering your options for a new winter coat.
Each time autumn rolls around my weakness for berry red shades comes to the fore. And it struck once more when I came across this heart-fluttering, oversize check coat from Karen Millen. Made from a wool and cashmere blend, softness is pretty much guaranteed.
I find checks ever so appealing - probably due to the fact they have such a strong resemblance to tartan, the fabric of my motherland (and for which I have an undeniable penchant!)
When paired with classic tailoring and design it makes this coat a no brainer for me. Plus it looks pretty darn good with opaque tights and, since I live in black tights from November - February, thats yet thing another reason for me to stick this coat at the top of my wish list!
