Superdry AW14 Collection.

When Superdry got in touch and asked me to review a piece from their new AW14 collection, at first I honestly hesitated. However, I'm now very happy I accepted. You see, I'm not one for accepting anything and everything that's offered to me through this wee blog, I only ever accept things I think will truly fit my blog and audience, and are things that I would buy myself anyway. But every so often I like to try out new things that maybe I wouldn't always buy, and open my mind to new brands and products.

My views on Superdry before they got in touch, were that they were a very active fashion brand aimed at individuals who enjoy 'cool' clothing. I do not think of my style as 'cool'. They always reminded me of Jack Wills when they first came out, a brand aimed at teens spending mum and dads money, or adults who liked to think they were still in with the young crowd. As a teen I was in the Jack Wills band, however my brother was in the Superdry band, and thus I never thought they were a brand I would ever appreciate.

My views have now changed.

Just like when I went out of my comfort zone when I chose a bright red (I rarely wear bright colours) Barbour jumper, I went totally out of my comfort zone this time too, and chose the Superdry Everest slim coat (a Parka style coat) to review. Yes. A Parka. The last time I wore one of these or even owned one, I was 13 years old and thought I was honestly the coolest person on the planet. I've noticed lately that they seem to be back in fashion, so I thought 'why not'.

Well, this Parka is definitely more flashy, cool, and warm than my one from ten years ago (ten years :O). The fur part on the hood is detachable, which I quite like as I don't always want faux fur hanging off my head (seriously, I found this out the hard way 10 years ago, it does not mix well with rain and snow).

While it's still a little warm outside to wear a thick winter coat, I'm so excited for the weather to get colder this year just so I can test out whether or not this coat is as warm as it feels. It just feels so snug. Also I love how deep and large the pockets are - perfect for putting glove-covered hands into. I'm so happy I've finally gone out of my comfort zone and tried a piece from Superdry, I have a feeling this might be my new go-to winter coat. Watch this space!

Now, although the downs really does look lovely in summer, can the snow please hurry up?! I need to test out my coat, and Dylan misses eating it. He told me so.

  1. The coat looks lovely on you and it's very practical for this time of the year. Well done for trying new things. When I bought my 1st dress from Superdry I've hesitated , it's very short and I thought that in my 30s it's not that appropriate. Now I love it and I feel great in it.

    1. Thank you! Yes, it's definitely practical - I'm hoping it'll snow this year so I can fully make the most of it!
