A coat is not a purchase; it is an investment

As the winter months draw near to the little, bad-weather ridden island that is the UK, I found myself in the predicament that I did not pack a coat for university. now, coats are not something that should be bought and worn twice when you decide to actually emerge from the house in these arctic temperatures; bit of an exaggeration I know but have you felt the temperature recently?!

So hear my word of warning: do not buy a cheap coat. It will break and you will be cold. A coat should be something you want to wrap around yourself in the winter months because it looks and feels good. A coat should compliment and add to every outfit you wear this season. A coat should allow you to feel confident enough to step out into the cold and think that you look stylish and, above all, warm.

I spent £90 on this wool coat from Topman because a good coat is an investment, it will last for a while. I’m not a huge fan of shopping on the high street any more because I don’t like the idea of everyone owning the same clothes as me, but when I wandered into there with a friend, I literally could not resist.

So whenever someone is trying to talk you out of buying a new coat, do not let them. Think to yourself, “I will be warm this season. it is an investment.” because let’s face it, you’re going to buy the damn coat anyway.
