Navy Princess Coat from Miss Selfridge


While most of us are still getting the best out of our Summer wardrobes, the first of Autumn's fare is moving into shops across the high street. This Navy Princess Coat from Miss Selfridge has an irresistible vintage feel that could even manage to make us look forward to September's weather.

The contrast between navy and brown has a very retro warmth, using a variety of textures and fabrics to create an air of luxury. The pleated skirt adds something special, with the addition of round metallic buttons to tie the sixties influences together.

It's now available from Miss Selfridge for £85.

Velvet Princess Coat by Sara Berman


Finding the perfect piece of clothing that manages to incorporate both practicality and killer style can be  near impossible task at times, especially without remortgaging your house to pay for it. This Velvet Trimmed Princess Coat by Sara Berman may not be the cheapest, but such a rare find could well be worth the extra spend.

The coat's classic princess cut taps into a British heritage feel, with velvet trim at the pockets and cuffs adding a timeless luxury. Some sixties-style modernity is added by the vivid red shade and unusually shaped hood addition, a feature that gives this coat an added element of practical design.

It's available in the UK from Urban Outfitters for £195.

eBay watch: Pashley Princess bicycle


This retails for around £550 when sold new, so right now, this Pashley Princess bicycle is a potential bargain.

It's a decent example of this vintage-styled gem too, not perfect, but perfectly serviceable. It's a three-speed in Regency Green with a 20-inch frame size, hub brakes, ding dong bell, Brooks Saddle and recent Michelin World Tour Amber Wall Tyres.

On the downside, the frame is scratched in quite a few places and the outer black plastic covers on the various cables are damaged. Aside from that, it's just fine. Right now, it's at £69.
