THE SHOW- OFF SHEARLING
Investing in a new coat? Grazia’s style editor Polly Knight reveals her hero pick
IT’S OFFICIAL: coat season is here. Whether you love or loathe winter, finding the right cover-up can make it a breeze style-wise. This autumn, the only coat you need is the statement shearling – and Very’s pink-and-black version is the dream. So how to wear it? The key is to keep the rest of your look understated. It’s a no-brainer thrown over jeans and white sweater for off-duty days, and also looks the part with black trousers and boots for the 9-5. But a coat like this really deserves to be taken out on the town – team with a tiered black dress and knee boots for a look that’s a bit ’70s, a bit glam-goth and totally cool.
