This is a look I can identify with and it is the first one that has really  captured my attention, for Autumn 2016.

Look for  oversized and wear them with heels. My dream one would be from Stella McCartney in navy velvet but I will have to see if it makes it to the sale. I just adore the image below it captures exactly the look I want, simple, easy to wear yet a bit edgy.

Down-Coats-and-Jackets-For-Winter-2015-2016-10This is such a practical trend, you can stay warm and it  hides a multitude, if you are scared of looking like a Michelin Man, then wear this look with heels and go for a cropped version.

It is not a new look,  it is often championed by Emmanuelle Alt, I love the way she has belted hers below. I have the  Isabel Marant, Elori as worn below in leather and the material version the Sherman on preloved searches!

There are so many colours emerging too but I think stick to black or white .  I think the longer version is more practical in the Winter but if you are shorter the cropped version will be easier to wear.

The Oversized Puffer Autumn 2016

So have a look at Marks and Spencer, Zara, Topshop and Nike  and I am sure  the rest of the highstreet will follow. The Brand Outlet has a great leather oversized puffer as does ASOS and the Outnet. The most practical and best priced option is from Urban Outfitters and it comes in a load of colours. I have bought the Topshop one to use over evening dresses . I have also spotted some great ones at TK Maxx.

This is almost making me lust after those colder days! I have my eyes out for a thigh length puffer, the team at Top Shop have promised me that there is a black velvet version coming in September so keep an eye out for that.
