Cosy Autumn Coats: Style Not Age Challenge

Gail Hanlon from Is This Mutton in velvet coat from Joe Browns
 

It's time to reach for a cosy coat, and here's the latest Style Not Age Challenge to inspire you.  My coat is called "the Virtuous Velvet Coat" and you can find it on Joe Browns. They kindly gifted me the coat, which I think you'll agree is stunning with its gold buttons and shaping. 

A burgundy velvet coat with gold buttons is the cosy coat chosen by Is This Mutton for the Style Not Age Challenge Cosy Autumn Coats

I'm wearing the coat over a Hope burgundy velour skirt, Ted Baker jumper and Kettlewell silver scarf. The vegan lace-up brogue boots, new, are from Marks and Spencer. Bag from Mulberry.

Now let's see what my blogger friends came up.  Hilda, from Over the Hilda, who devised the coats challenge, is wearing a Michael Kors coat she found in TK Maxx.  It's a very warm coat with a hood, like a blanket she says, so Hilda is obviously expecting a cold snap or lots of outdoor dining  (if another lockdown beckons, hopefully not!). Her green boots are from Primark/Penneys.  Her leggings are by Spanx.  

Emma from Style Splash is also wearing a coat she snapped up at a bargain price. Originally from Marks & Spencer, she had seen the coat in a charity shop but it wasn't the right size. Then it popped up on eBay for £10.  It's a very desirable coat with its contrasting leopard print collar. 

Emma has layered it over a leopard print top from SilkFred and some velvet trousers from Very. She says a bad hair day led to her wearing the velvet turban style hat with pearl embellishments. 

Jacqui from Mummabstylish can't wait to wear her new padded coat from Marks and Spencer with its fashionable press stud fastenings. It looks great with her houndstooth bag and will certainly keep her warm during chilly shopping expeditions and lunches with friends.

Anna from Anna's Island Style is wearing a pre- loved coat from Kew 159, dress from  Topshop, shoes by Office and sunglasses by Radley London. Her blue sky shows us that autumn/fall is not always too cold, so perfect for a lightweight coat.


I hope we've inspired you with our coat choices! More pics on each of the blogs. See you on Wednesday for #WowOnWednesday.

Capsule Dressing Made Easy - and Link-Up

Dear friends. I was very shocked when my winter clothes came down from the loft a couple of weeks ago. Four large bags, and there were already quite a few winter clothes already taking up space in my wardrobe, Mr Mutton's wardrobe, and the downstairs coats cupboard.  

Over the last few months I've been building a colourful wardrobe of clothes from Kettlewell in my colours  (Winter), which should last me for several years.  It now takes up one half of my wardrobe.  And Mr Mutton then issued an edict that my coats Had To Go.  From his wardrobe, at least.
