Autumn and winter still remains my favorite season for fashion and I can’t wait for colder days to roll in so I can explore more autumn/winter style.
The inspiration behind this blogpost is my £39 coat from tkmaxx that I can’t seem to get enough of. I want to point out that getting a great coat is definitely a good fashion investment, one I’m pretty new to.

This coat was the first item that caught my eye as I stepped into tkmaxx and even though it was perfect, I still looked to my friend Aisha and that was what sealed it for me. She gasped! There was no way she was letting me get out the store without buying my now favorite coat.
I automatically knew that was the impression or effect I wanted to have on people when I styled this coat. So I wore it to the counter to pay for it. You know that act you put on when you fall in love with an item? Yes, that’s the one.
The first way I styled my Fabio Lisandro coat was with a black midi dress from saint and Sofia and I wrote about it here.
Now here are a few things that stood out for me:
The fabric is amazing. It has the really soft, fury but firm fabric. Feels absolutely great on the skin so why the hell not?
I don’t know where this started but I think heavy coats also means great quality. The first time I tried it on, I could feel it’s weight on my shoulders because boyyy… is it heavy or heavy? It completely made me feel rich even though I got it for cheap.
No belt: I know this might sound odd but I love coats without the whole belt situation. This had very clear and little detail. It wasn’t too much or little, just the right amount.
Styled it with a plaid pant from Topshop because plaid is another autumn favorite I hope to explore this year.
Of course a basic black top from new look to set the base.
Another star of this look for me is the round bag from mango. Really loving mango’s bag and boots collection, I won’t hesitate buying one of every piece 😂
My badboy boots are from primark and even at a bargain. I’ll have other options you can shop from as it’s currently out of stock.
Now that you’ve gotten to the end of this post, what are your thoughts on autumn and winter style?
I really do hope you enjoy this post. Do comment below how you feel about this look, what you would have done differently and other style content you think I should explore.
