Coast Autumn Winter 2011 collection

Jules animal print day dress - €120
I recently popped in to the Coast press day (where I spotted Laura Whiston looking stunning in her long leather coat, and met the lovely lady behind high fashion site Icone Du Jour). I confess to having pegged Coast as a place to shop for special occasions as opposed to my day-to-day wardrobe, but I was proved pleasantly wrong by the lovely array of ‘pop on’ day dresses, covetable coats and stylish separates on display.  There were influences from several decades from the 30s to the 70s and of course, a glamorous party dress or two was also in the mix.
I really loved the Natalia collection – unstructured, floaty pieces in soft textures and muted tones – and the 60s inspired colour block pieces from the Uma collection (predominately red, accented with black and white).  We’re also in for a treat when the Bianca collection hits stores from November – all metallics and blacks, these pieces are intended to layer into the Jerry collection (in store now) to create a jewel bright look that will be perfect for the run up to the festive season. No,  I can’t believe I just wrote the words ‘festive season’, either.

My favourite pieces? The metallic pleated Coralie maxi skirt from the Bianca collection (€195, above), and the dark green ‘Ashley’ faux fur jacket (€180, no image available yet). I was also rather taken with the Jules animal print day dress (pictured at the top of this post). I’m starting my savings plan now.

May I say, as a short roundy woman, that Coast often have dresses that look better on curvey women than they do on the tall, slim people modelling them in pics. It's a place I often check out for a special occasion purely because they usually stock some classic shapes as well as reflecting on-the-button current fashion trends.

Teresa, I will bear that in mind as a short roundish sort myself!

Paula, it's lovely isn't it - and a good price for Coast, too.

Sarah, you can take the girl out of Glasgow...!
