The day before London Fashion Week in February I popped into Topshop to pick up some pieces to round out my wardrobe for the new season. I’m terrible at putting together my outfits in advance and, without fail, each season sees me running around the West End the day before LFW throwing clothes in baskets, and hoping that I’ll magically find several great looks that will see me through the week.

My absolute find this time around was this loose trench-style duster coat.

Generally I think trench coats look abysmal on 99% of the population – unless you happen to be very tall and very thin, but the loose, unstructured and unlined nature of this coat means that it hangs beautifully. It’s also uncrushable and, best of all, it’s navy. Sometimes I think that finding anything navy is like a fashion four leaf clover – they’re so rare that you start to think it doesn’t exist.

I ended up wearing it almost every day, over my navy DL jeans, with the simple French navy jersey T shirt dress, with a cream tulle lining, that I am wearing here, and over my beautiful Preen print dress.

It also happens to look excellent with my pink Raf trainers, which I LOVE LOVE LOVE.

@Sasha Wilkins:

Sasha,
Are the shoulders fitted? What size did you order?
Managed to find a 16 and ordered it.

it’s a loose style, but the shoulders are set as standard. I think mine is a 14 LLGxx

Sasha, I have a feeling that you would look fabulous in whatever you wore, though I must admit that having a gorgeous dachshund as an accessory helps!

Hi Sasha

Really fancy a pair of the DL1961 jeans – anywhere UK or Europe based where they might be sold! Hate paying that ton of duty on imports from the US
Thanks

I love your adidas,

Do you always tie the laces or do you sometimes leave them loose and untied?

Both! Sometimes tucked in too! LLGxx
