The Dream Camel Coat from Jaeger



Style Theory: I have wanted a camel coat for years, in fact, since my first 'proper' job in PR at 22. I did buy one from a market, it was £20 and to be honest, it looked like it was worth a lot less. I have pinned hundreds of photos of camel coat looks on Pinterest and tried so many on but they have always been not quite right. That was until I tried this Jaeger one on in their new Marylebone store.



Shoes - Gucci
Bag - Furla

It is the most beautiful wool cashmere mix, it is a true investment piece but will last you year after year and the fabric and the cut are exceptional. It is simple and and completely in proportion - I cant do oversized or big collars as I am too small so this coat works perfectly for me. I teamed it with autumnal colours, a gorgeous deep red wool top from Jaeger's edge Laboratory range and the coolest, most comfy flannel trousers from Jaeger's range, keeping the look completely classic but knowing that all the different elements of the outfit would look good dressed down.

I love the idea of the camel coat with dark red New Balance trainers, the trousers with a slouchy knit and my Stan Smiths and the dark red wool top with boyfriend jeans and heels. Each part of the outfit a stand out piece and all items that will work hard for me in my wardrobe.

If you are in the Marylebone High Street area or even if you are shopping on Oxford Street and don't normally venture Marylebone way it really worth making the 8 minute walk (from Selfridges) up to Marylebone and checking out the gorgeous boutiques and the new Jaeger store. There so many fab cafes too and it just less manic than Oxford Street, more a relaxing amble than being pushed along with the crowds.

There were so many pieces in the store that caught my eye, from buttery soft leather gloves to a cool pinstripe top and trouser look to the most wonderful teddy fur coat. My Nana who always dressed in the most glamorous way always wore Jaeger camel coat and it makes me feel nostalgic  and happy (she was an extra special warm fabulous lady) that now I have one too......

Have you invested in a winter coat? What style /colour has caught your eye recently? Have you popped into a Jaeger recently, it is really worth a little nosey around...

As always thank you so much for reading, until the next time Fran xxx
