Lands' End are launching their Autumn/ Winter campaign and i had the pleasure, alongside some other fabulous bloggers, of trying one of their beautifully made Cire Down Coats from the Ladies Coats section.
I thought i'd give it the best possible test run and take it up to the highest point in Llantrisant, where the wind was howling and the temperature was 5 degrees Celsius. And d'you know what? I was toasty warm... seriously, really warm! I have never actually owned a coat that has kept the cold out so well. Most of my coats have previously been "fashion" type jackets which means i usually moan within 10 minutes of being outside. But The Cire Down felt so great on and looked as good as any fashion type coat i own.
I've worn mine here with a simple dress and a pop of colour with the tights, which is one of my favourite go-to combos.
The wonderful thing with this coat is its versatility. I will quite happily be wearing my skinny jeans with blouses or funky knitwear underneath. Pops of colour look great and add interest to the colour palette, so any coloured jean/trouser would look fabulous. Ankle booties, tights and skirts are also another go-to for me and thankfully this coat will keep me warm whilst wearing them. It also has a sports luxe feel so i think it would look amazing with a pair of wedge hi top trainers that are everywhere this winter.
