In The Changing Room At Next

You know it's a bad idea to go food shopping when you're hungry - equally it's a bad move to go in to Next when it's a freezing cold, dreary old day. I don't really need a new coat. Well I would like a mid length black casual/smartish coat. And a fur gilet to wear over volume sleeve tops.. Anyway you're probably picking up that I love coats. I don't think you can have enough coats, which is completely justified living in the UK where the weather can switch from blue skies to pouring rain in a matter of minutes.

Here are the jackets that I tried on in the changing room at Next..
Next Black Coated Jacket
Next Black Coated Jacket
I love this take on a biker style jacket. It's a coated material on the outside and soft cotton inner lining. What I really like about this jacket is the over sized collar, which can be worn up or down. £58.00

In my mind I thought this would look like a trendy dog walking parka. It's not and is definitely one of those items that looks better on the hanger than on me. And at £78.00 you could find better and warmer. But here's a side view just in case you want to see the length.

Next Wadded Jacket

This jacket made me smile so much trying it on. The colour, how snuggly warm it is and the ridiculously big (air bag style) collar. I was tempted to buy this just because of how happy it made me and made me remember the silver Puffa jacket I used to wear in the 90's. Sadly, in the store I went in to they only had petite and I just don't know if I'm brave enough for this colour. It's not the 90's anymore. This jacket also comes in a royal blue, which I don't like at all. £75.00 and well worth it.

Next Berry Mock Layer Parka

Another coat which looks better on someone else. I was attracted by the colour and that it looked a stylish but solid jacket. This is a double layer jacket. I'm not sure how I feel about that. £78.00.

Next Longline Bomber Jacket
Next Longline Bomber Jacket
Although this longline bomber was a little tight on my arms (I'm sure the next size up would have been better), I like the detail, length and look of this jacket. Long enough to keep you dry and warm and not too thick, so you won't get too hot wearing this. £65.00.

All these jackets were in store when I visited yesterday (11 Feb).

    1. Thanks Lucy. I keep thinking about it. I wish I was going skiing then I could totally justify it but I bet if I bought it, spring would suddenly arrive! Xx
