Autumn Trend: Grey on Grey

Being petite I sometimes struggle buying coats because they can swamp me so when I purchased this New Look grey fur coat last year (similar here) I was sceptical of how it was going to look but it was love at first sight. The fabric, the faux fur, the colour everything about it is beautiful and as I didn't really get to show off how lovely it was last year, out it comes for AW16.

The grey coat is designed as a longer style so you can wear anything underneath and not worry about the colours clashing too much. For this particular Autumn outfit that I actually wore to work one day I went for even more grey and houndstooth print which has a 60s flair about it. The print is a bit more ladylike than other autumn prints such as plaid, tartan and gingham. 

The exception of grey in this outfit is the La Redoute Fringed Black Boots (£15 in the sale) which haven't come off my feet because they are super comfy! But the whole outfit cost £42.99 including the bodycon skirt also from New Look was just £5 in the sale (similar here) and the grey turtle neck was just £7.99 from H&M.

Will you be wearing grey this Autumn?
