Red Heaven! - Debanhams Henry Holland Coat!

I just want to start by apologising for the lack of posts recently as my internet was, and still is down! God help me.
I was lucky enough to be chosen by Debenhams to style an absolutely stunning red fluffy Henry Holland coat. As you will probably know, I am not one to wear much colour or at least a lot of it, so the idea of this was a challenge! However when it arrived I completely and utterly fell in love, as you would know if you follow my instagram  you will have seen the sea of red! Fluffy coats are something that has suddenly flown onto the scene of street style with everywhere from Primark to Prada showcasing the comfy things. It is literally like carrying your bed around with you, what more could you want?

I was so surprised at how warm this coat was and it is definitely going to be a coat I will be wearing in winter and through Christmas as it is also a very very festive looking coat. I paired it first with a simple look consisting of my trusty TK Maxx black skinny jeans, a plain v neck tee from Gap and my babies which are my Dune booties I bought from Selfridges in the sale in Birmingham. I loved how the coat worked so well with such a plain and casual outfit, but it doesn't make the outfit too dressy or over the top which means I did not feel out of place walking round the centre of town.

For the second look I created with this coat was one where I decided to go for all black, surprise surprise...
When I first tried this on I had a black tee and some black leggings on and I just fell in love with the contrast of colour with the dark black tones. With the weather in autumn not being too cold but not being too warm, the bare legs surprisingly were not noticeable with the super warm top half of my body. I wore a jumper from Free People available here! which was sent to me by the wonderful online shop Shop Mixology, I then wore my H&M a line skirt and my trusty Dune boots again. This look would also work when it starts to get a little colder by wearing some opaque tights or even thermal tights as it gets into Winter, with some leather gloves and a thick warm scarf.

 This coat is one of the best coats I have ever worn it is so unbelievably warm and I cant stop wearing it! The black version of the coat is now available online at Debenhams here! And its half price! Honestly it is 100% worth a purchase.
I hope you enjoyed this post and the better quality pictures very kindly taken by the wonderful Monique, follow her instagram( )
