Shopping is our favourite pastime. Read on to find out what we bought this week and let us know us what you bought too.
A stone coloured mac (€29, Penneys, £15 Primark, pictured)
This prudent pick also comes in ivory, navy and black and is currently in store. It’s time to ditch the winter coat and look to a lighter, brighter option for spring outerwear. We’re wearing with a vintage style silk scarf from River Island (€27).
A classic mac silhouette is our favourite way to make the transition from winter to spring, or in Ireland’s case from very cold to cold-and-probably-raining. Other trench coats in the shops right now include short and long styles at Debenhams and for those after a high end fix, a classic Burberry trench (€950, Netaporter) – worn by, dare we say it the conservatively dressed Kate Middleton in Belfast this week and by singer Elie Goulding, who was treated to an edgier studded version by Burberry, just for their London Fashion Week AW11 show.
WSW Style Tip: Taupe or Stone is a good basic colour for Irish (pale) skin tones – the neutrality of it will ensure that it goes with most things in your wardrobe. The warmer nude or beige tones suit, like what Ellie is wearing, only those with sallower skin.
