Wear it twice Wednesday: doubling up your coats

Finally a trend that's as practical as it is fashionable! Not so long ago some very clever fashion fans started wearing not one but two coats to shows in New York - a trend which fast caught on over here during London Fashion Week. It's probably the simplest trend to wear without having to go to a lot of expense as all you'll need is two of your favourite coats. You could try mixing leather and fur, fur and tweed, different colours, similar colours, the list is endless! Or for a more elegant look why not try wearing one coat and draping the other over your shoulders?

The best thing about this trend is that not only will you be looking amazing as you walk down the street, you'll be helping keep out that bitterly cold wind! We've put together six different combinations for you to give you some ideas of how to rock the look! All of the coats featured below are vintage and available at Emma's shop.

This long tweed coat with a fur collar looks amazing with a leather jacket underneath. All you'd need to do with this outfit is add a pair of jeans and some heels and off you'd go looking a million dollars!

Don't these colours just look amazing together? This is a 50s blue coat teamed with a bright green blazer which will give you an amazing bold look.

You don't just have to stick to two completely different jackets when you're pairing them together. This is a tweed on tweed look which is just amazing and is a more subtle way to way the trend.

This is an example of how matching a similar print but different colours works really well. This gorgeous green tweed jacket with the red and blue checked one underneath is a really striking look.

If you've got a fur you want to incorporate in to this look, it doesn't always have to go on the top. Here the lightweight fur jacket is underneath a beautiful tweed Jaeger jacket.

If you're not sure you want to go for the full look straight away or once the weather warms up a little, why not try adding a fur collar such as this one to a coat like this amazing long leather jacket?
