As our extended summer fades to grey now is the time to seek solace in AW 2014’s sumptuous offerings of warm woolens and cost coats, but with the high streets bounty even more generous than the previous seasons and designer investment pieces only a click away, the choice of winter hero pieces is more daunting than ever.
Classic and timeless or of the moment, super warm or super chic, save or splurge… if the swirling decisions are enough to numb your brain faster than the first frost fear not, and take a relaxing gander over my low down of the best the high street and investment pieces the season has provided.
Grasp this seasons ongoing obsession with the nineties and make like Courtney Love in her heyday with this candy offering that is anything but sweet. Extreme coziness is an bonus.
