Matching The Fall Leaves: Rust Coat Outfit

I don't know about you but I am so over black, grey and navy for the colder months. This season it seems that colour has stuck around and lovely green and mustard tones are exceptionally trendy. Which is why when I was on the search for a new coat, I knew I desperately wanted to add some colour to my coat collection, previously dominated by boring shades like black and its variations. I also knew I didn't want anything too expensive as I prefer to replace my coats every year by giving them to charity and picking up something brand new. There is only one place for coats (or pretty much anything) on sale at this time of year, and that's Lovethesales.com. I talked about this website previously here, when I picked up a few summer bits I could make work for fall and this website has seriously become a firm favourite, not only of mine but the whole family (who doesn't love a good bargain?).

"You cannot fake chic but you can be chic and fake fur" - Karl Lagerfeld

When I spotted this rusty/terracotta/ginger coloured coat I knew it had to be mine. It is in a cut I confess I wasn't too sure would flatter my figure, but it is so comfy and roomy I can just see myself layering big chunky knits underneath when the truly harsh weather makes an appearance. Despite being stunning, I also thought this rust colour would be difficult to pair, but how wrong was I. It goes well with white, black, denim and alike earthy tones. The coat also has a detachable faux fur collar, perfect to add that extra touch of glam to an outfit. All in all, it is a beautifully made coat, in a gorgeous eye-popping colour and oh so incredibly comfy, plus it was on sale, what's not to love!

This trend has exploded all over social media, and I've always loved a good wintery hat so I had to add this to my wardrobe. The newsboy cap is a hat of the 19th century, favoured by working boys then. Today the piece is very much du jour, and best yet, it suits almost all face shapes and it is very easy to wear. You can wear the design with everything from a dress to jeans, making it indeed a fashion girl's must-have item for the season.

Wanting to draw attention to the colour of the coat, I went for an all-black outfit and I must say those are my favourite for this time of year. Adding a leather skirt to any outfit instantly makes it more stylish and these boots have been on my feet on repeat so it was a no-brainer. They were also a find on lovethesales.com and what can I say, best boots ever! Looking back at the photos, I would lose the bag but otherwise, this is one outfit I will be counting on this season for when I want to fill glammed up but cosy.

  14. I do enjoy my fair share of black but I know what you mean as I am totally loving these autumnal rust shades at the moment. I've found myself added more colour into my wardrobe this season too. I love the colour of this coat and this whole outfit combo looks so good together!

  15. Loved the pictures, Pam, you look so sweet and beautiful as usual! Loved the colour of this coat, it is really super sweet! The quote is great - you can fake fur, but not chic :) The outfit, black, goes very well with the coat's colour! I hope you enjoy the evening!

  16. I'm so glad you've bought a newsboy cap Pam as it suits you so much! Yayy for fake fur- I hate real fur, I don't see why an animal has to suffer when the fake stuff looks just as good. This terracotta coat is gorgeous- such a versatile hue and a refreshing change from black as you said :)
