For me, Autumn is that time of year where the search for the "perfect" winter coat begins. Every year this remains a constant struggle to find the right balance between the warmer days from our past summer and the bitter cold we can expect here in the upcoming Winter. As you know, from previous posts I am forever lusting over anything leather/fur related. When I came across this jacket with the combination of the two, you can just imagine my reaction. The thing I was most pleasantly surprised at is the fact that it's not real leather nor fur, being a passionate vegetarian this just makes the appeal of the jacket more intense. In order to make this jacket ideal for Winter, I would personally go a size up from normal so that I would easily be able to layer jumpers and cardigans for extra warmth.

I've styled this outfit with a plain white loose fitting top, this is just so that you aren't too warm with the jacket on top, purely for those last days of sun!

Choosing not to add any accessories, I added this simple white watch of which I feel makes the outfit look a bit more polished.

Jeans again, are another key piece to my winter wardrobe. I love the fact that you are able to wear leggings underneath without anybody knowing yet still remain just as cosy. The detail of the zips and side paneling also gives the outfit more of an edge than say a pair of ordinary jeans would which is always, a bonus.

Boots are an essential in the colder weather, especially if your feet get as cold as mine! Again, going that extra size up will give you enough space to put on your warm fluffy socks. I decided to go with a leopard print style boot as I feel it lightens up the outfit due to not opting for anything colourful (surprise, surprise).

Lastly, I chose to match the boots with the bag (which may I add is gorgeous) to help compliment the outfit and bring it together as a finished look.

So that's it guys, my Autumn/Winter look for the House of Fraser blogger style challenge. If you fancy giving it ago, you can find all the information here regarding how.
