All wrapped up

As the autumn draws near, more layers are required to block out that cold.  A good coat not only completes the look, but also fights the freeze.  Be sure that your coat still fits with a thick knit underneath, for when the blitz hits.  If you have a tight budget, choose a versatile jacket, so that you can wear it with a multiple of styles.  Like with shoes, be sure to buy a coat to fit your personality, as it is the first thing people will see of your outfit.

If the boot fits ...

So the nights are drawing in earlier, and the weather is turning colder, and it some cases wetter (if possible).  We have reached the transitional phase for a woman's wardrobe.  Heavier fabrics, tights, outerwear.  So what happens to the feet?  A popular choice is the boot.  They keep the foot snug, and fight out the cold.

Below are my top 5 choices available on the high street, each to be worn for an alternative look.
