Do you ever walk into Selfridges with the sole intention of perhaps looking for a bracelet and then come out with an All Saints trench? No? Just me then.
Stepping outside my wholly black wardrobe, I bought the softest oyster trench to transition through to autumn and beyond. I've been throwing it on over riding pants, black shift dresses and leather skirts as the perfect alternative to my companion, the black duster coat. And because it's still within my monochrome, tonal range of colour choices (oyster counts as grey which is in the black family, right?), it lends itself to a perfect bold lip.
