Winter Lust List #1

It's that time of the year once again when I'm searching the web looking for the perfect new additions to my wardrobe. As we enter Autumn I'm already looking one season ahead and I've started compiling my Winter lust list. To to be honest there are way too many items I'm lusting after for the chilly season so I will be sorting the 'Lust Lists' into style groups and sharing them with you over the next few months!

I already have a huge winter coat collection and, well, let's face it, an outerwear addiction, but I'm still hunting for a few more pieces for winter 2015! I've found some brilliant items at a website I've only just stumbled across - Izabel London. A UK based fashion site with super cheap shipping to both Australia and New Zealand!

Now I have a wardrobe full of coloured coats in pinks, maroon, prints and more but I'm really lacking in either plain black or black with contrasting fabrics. So here is my current lust list :

Absolutely in love with this contrasting trim coat in black with an almost tween looking textured print! Such classic tailoring that works for all outfits and all body shapes. I love the bold print and black panels and the shape they create. A perfect coat to keep me warm and wear to work all winter.
This style is available up to a size 14 and I find that I can wear UK14 coats with ease.

 I'm a absolute sucker for studs and this style has so many of the features I'm looking for. Studs in silver (I don't really suit bronze or gold) PU detailing at the waist, big buttons and hits mid thigh.  Another perfect style for both work or play! I tend to dress my winter coats up or down depending on how cold it might get. This style also goes up to a size 14.

I may own 4 biker jackets already but this minor detail does not stop me from lusting after more. I'm smitten over this style due to the unique quilted texture on the arms. I've yet to purchase a quilted biker jacket yet and this definitely needs to be in my collection. Available up to a size 14.

In need of something larger than a 14? Well Izabel London have a brilliant plus size section as well. This first coat from the plus collection to catch my eye was this double collared leopard print biker. Such a brilliant print and would look amazing with black skinny jeans or disco pants. Loving the glam rock vibe this jacket has and would love to style it. Available in size 18+.

Then finally the one coat every women needs when the weather cools down - a double breasted hooded black coat. This style pairs with everything and can be worn to work, out to the snow, out for coffee or even to keep you warm on an evening out. The super warm lining means you don't have to layer too much and you can pair this with your favourite gloves, scarves and berets. I'm loving the hood feature as I can't get enough of hoods over winter.

So there you have it! These are my stand out favourite styles for the cooler months ahead but there are so many more to choose from with more colours and prints. I'm also loving the price tags as I very rarely spend over $120 for a winter coat and with shipping these are a steal!
