Get your Frocks off with this season’s Frock Coats!

Spring has sprung as far as I am concerned! Well, I dropped my winter coats off at the dry cleaners last week and to me that signifies I am ready to welcome the new season with open arms! A great transitional coat away from your woollen winter staple is the frock coat: a lightweight thigh length coat which may or may not be heavily patterned. Zara is always my first port of call for frock coats and this season they have some beautiful pastel pink options, a few black & white beauties and one zesty yellow piece of wardrobe heaven which caught my eye! A frock coat looks better on if it is slightly oversized – you still have room to layer a big ‘ole jumper underneath if the winter wind is still blowing where you are! Further up the scale Maxmara is always a good bet for a classic, timeless wardrobe investment piece. Whether you are trying out this season’s new crop flare style jeans or sticking to your skinnies – Frock coats look great with either. Add a cashmere jumper underneath, a band t-shirt (very on-trend) or your trusty denim shirt and you are good to go. Footwear wise you can’t go wrong with a trainer or a loafer. It’s far too cold to be thinking about getting my toes out yet so I’m sticking to my short, suede cowboy-esque ankle boots which are a step away from the plain leather ankle boots I was wearing all winter. Spring is a great time to add a bit of colour and creativity to your wardrobe so if you’d like some help with that...
