Ah bless, the chilly air of Autumn is upon us, and it is almost time for our hibernation for Winter (that's right, just like the bears).
While we are divided here at the Witness my revival tower as to which season is our favourite, there is one thing we all agree on: a new season means a new wardrobe which means happiness. Cue hours wiled away searching our fav online stores for the perfect autumnal accessory...the output of which I give you below.
Today’s blog is on our most desired coats and over the next few days we will share with you our picks of the new gloves, hats and scarves. We have done the hard work for you so you don’t have to!
Enjoy – and remember to wrap up warm!
The devil is in the (shoulder) detail with this coat from Zara - it adds interest to an otherwise plain coat
Oh Monki, I love you so. This is such a cute flattering shape and it looks so comfy and cosy!
Duck-egg blue is one of our favourite colours, light, wearable and it also makes a refreshing change from the dark palette used in Autumn and Winter. This Reiss coat is just lovely.
A black coat with a touch of detail that is extremely flattering, expertly tailored and warm. Perfect, from Whistles.
I cannot find the link to purchase for this coat, but it is just too beautiful to not include. Found via we the people
All this Paris Fashion Week coverage has us yearning for holiday to revive ourselves in the city of love (or light depending on how you are inclined). Given the fact that the Eurostar will not be whipping us away across the Channel this weekend, we thought best to content ourselves with some of our favourite Paris images from the Vogue archives.

I think we’ve made it pretty obvious that here at Lucozade HQ we’re a little fashion obsessed, and that the athleticism and grace of ballerinas is something we aspire too so we were thrilled to discover that Valentino (yes, the Valentino) was going to be designing the costumes for the new season of the New York City Ballet.
The collaboration is a result of the three decade long friendship between Valentino and the Ballet’s director Peter Martins, and while the stilettos have been traded in to ballet points, the collection is still awash with everything we’ve come to love Valentino for – think full skirts, feathers, and of course red!
There are no words. It is all too beautiful.
