My favourite winter outfits!

Hi! I know it isn't *quite* winter yet,but you get the picture, it's freezing outside. So, who says that you have to look boring to be warm, hmm? Just because it's not shorts and tee-shirts doesn't mean it's not lovely. In fact, I prefer winter clothing, so here are my top outfits for Winter 2010! Oh by the way, in winter, my style can be seen as 'wacky' or maybe just a tad too unique...

Kiki's Top 3 Winter Outfits-

Outfit 1-
This lovely red jumper has a great wintery look to it, and seems it can be worn with plenty ofdifferent outfits. Also, everyone loves a bit of red in winter!
Jumper, £38, Topshop.

I love this cable tunic, the colouris niceand neutral, and it has a lovely fitting and shape. The dress is detailed,yet not too intense. I think it's beautiful!
Dress, £25, Next.
These boots are the perfect winters buy, trust me on this one! They are shockingly comfortable, and are very stylish with their buckle pattern. I own a pair of these boots, and I can honestly say I wear them most days!
Boots, £69.99, Rocket Dog.
This delightful charm bracelet holds tea party themed charms, which I adore! It also just makes me think 'winter!' because it's cups of tea and stuff!
Bracelet, £12, Accessorize.

Outfit 2-
This woolen dress isjust amorous! You have to love the sweet little cat, and also the fact that this cream dress is cosy and woolen, I think this is my favourite winters dress!
Dress, £25, New Look.
Firstly, sorry about the photo quality! Anyhow, these jeggings are set to make yet another comeback over the winter season, and also they are likely to keep you warm through winter due to their length, and tightness.
Jeggings, £12.50, George @ Asda.

A stunning shoe/boot combo, this leather laceup is perfect for this winters trends, and with the heel, it looks pretty elegant!
Shoe/Boots, £50, New Look.
Warming, woolen, well knitted, this black scarf will definitely last you through winter and find itself worn in a great variety of outfits! This will certainly keep you warm!
Scarf, £16, Topshop

Outfit 3-
This teadress might not come across as particularly wintery to you, but I think with its sketchy detail and cosy cream colour, it might be your best buy this season!
Dress, £37, Miss Selfridge

A nice and simple black cardigan, a winters essential. However, this particular cardi has more shape, with a bit of a stylish edge, perfect to wear with the above teadress.
Cardigan, £22.99, New Look.

Black cable tights! The cable knit is very in now, so there is no reason why these cable tights won't put you in perfect style.
Tights, £4.99, New Look

Kimchi T-Bar Ballet Pumps! I love these fashionably pretty shoes, and they will help you pull off any girly dress this winter, and they add the vintage look I love.
Shoes, £26, Urban Outfitters

We all know I love tan satchels, so why not through this cross body version in with a winters day outfit? After all, it's pretty much Christmas :P
Bag, £22, Miss Selfridge

The Camel Coat!

Right in style now, the coat for Autumn/Winter 2010, The Camel Coat!

This coat is very practical, and has some very sophisticated looks. I like that this coat is pretty versatile, as it is available in different materials and lengths, so that you can choose your own style, and make sure it fits best to you. Not only is it widely available in designer and high street shops, but it is also being increasingly seen on celebrities and catwalk models.

Here are a few of my favourite celebrities spotted in The Camel Coat:

Alexa Chung, found wearing a Camel Coat, and pulling it off well. Alexa has her sleeves rolled up, and her Camel Coat looks slightly worn in/creased, giving it a great casual and everyday edge.

Whether she is walking with purpose to a meeting, or a shopping trip, Stella McCartney shows the Camel Coat at it's best, with boots. She looks rather stylish in this coat, and seems to like wearing it!

When worn to what looks like some kind of awards ceremony, or possibly her film premieres, Angelina Jolie shows everybody how it's done, by wearing her longer styled Camel Coat with heels, looking wonderful.

So, as celebrities are most definitely loving the Camel Coat, we should too! Here are a few varieties on the coat:
Karen Millen's version of the Camel Coat, mid-length, high collared, and worn with belt. £225.

The more formal, shaped Camel Coat, by Planet. This Camel Coat costs £249.

Next's Camel Coat. This one is made of a thinner, less lenient material, and costs £75.

Thanks for reading, hope you like the Camel Coat! xx
