Street Style // The Red Coat

I've never been a massive fan of the colour red any where other than on lips or the soles of louboutins, however recently that's changed. I've been seeing a lot of street style images focusing on red coats and i'm converted. I've realised wearing red doesn't have to be a festive occurrence and teamed with the right things can be worn all year round. So I wanted to share with you some of my favorite street style images.  Whether its layered over a chunky knit, denim shirt or slogan tee a red coat can really stand out and make an outfit.

I particularly like how the blogger in style picture number two has layered hers over a leather biker. I'll be doing that with all my coats soon, Adds an interesting dynamic to an outfit. Hope you enjoy the images and if your looking for the perfect red coat we have one for sale at Annie and the Mannequins (as pictured above). Its 100% pure new wool size 12. Shop HERE!!

Happy Monday Lovelies xoxo

Camel Shades

January is always a difficult month for styling. I'm always tempted to go out in a lighter jacket, lets face it we're all sick of wearing heavy jackets all winter. However as soon as I step outside I get a breezy reminder that its actually still winter and I am in denial about how cold it still it.

So it got me thinking what will freshen up my January wardrobe and still keep me warm. My answer is camel..not the animal..the colour. It's a light colour without being to 'summery' and can brighten up an outfit. Given I sell vintage clothing for a living it was easy for me to find a coat that was just right for me, A camel pure new wool cocoon coat.

I have lots more camel winter warmers available to shop HERE!! Above are my top 4. Teamed with light denim mom jeans, stripe tee, chunky ankle boots or relaxed runners and leather backpack. The perfect January warm but stylish day outfit.

Totally Beaded Maxi

Totally Beaded Maxi Dress - Annie and the Mannequins
Leather Crop - Topshop
Faux Fur Collar - Annie and the Mannequins
Necklace - Primark

Have you ever wondered what kind of jacket to wear with a full length party gown? Well we have styled up our vintage totally beaded maxi dress with a crop leather jacket and added a cutesy faux fur collar. Normally when planning our party outfits we would always opt for a classic vintage faux fur. However on this occasion we think the length of the jacket is perfect for a full length dress, its doesn't take away from the look of the dress and the faux fur is just the right amount of fur :)

We have added lots of new vintage party perfect pieces to our ASOS page, including this amazing totally beaded maxi. Have a peek HERE :)

Love The Annies xoxo
