Style Challenge with Missguided !

I've been given the challenge by Missguided to style their black duster coat in 3 ways! They have kindly also given me a few little extras to help me mix and match. The reason why I've chosen the duster jacket is because I'm a massive fan of the light weight jacket and they are so versatile! They should be an essential in everyone's wardrobe. Normally I don't go for black but I liked the idea that I could be more creative with the rest of my items that way.. so here goes!

Okay so this is look 1. I wanted to make the first one very casual. To be honest I've really challenged myself wearing a black jacket to style because I haven't actually bought any black coats/jackets at all throughout winter. I'm normally drawn to colourful more statement items but I would happily wear this look again! This outfit will be perfect when the temperature gets milder and we don't need to layer up as much! I adore the Missguided jumper and it's a lovely, vibrant, textured knit. Gorgeous thick quality and the s/m size is a lovely fit on me (normally I'm size 10!) 
I've had my eye on the River Island bag for yonks now and I'm happy to include it in this look. It's bigger than my normal bags, but I love the boxy shape and the detail!

Okay this is look 2, and I have to admit, I was struggling to style this because mum kept on saying I looked like a stylish Hogwarts student (I'm going to take it as a compliment!). I just wanted to make a  smart outfit! I'm in LOVE with this pussy bow blouse and I'm so happy they are making a comeback! It's nice to wear a bow around your neck instead of a necklace for a change ha! The skort is also lovely and I love the print (but do go a size down if you buy this, it has an elasticated waist!) 
I think the fur stole did help to make this look less like Hogwarts. I think adding fur just makes an outfit look and feel glamorous! It has been one of my favourite accessories throughout winter and they are so easy to mix and match with outfits.

Last look! I've been super loving khaki through the winter and I reaaallly wanted to include this colour. Then I remembered I owned some khaki smart joggers that are coincidently from Missguided also! You've no idea how happy I was when I dug these out from the wardrobe! I wore the pussy bow blouse but obviously without the bow because I wanted to wear a necklace instead. The khaki joggers then went perfect with my fedora hat from Asos and my Michael Kors bag. 

So over all, I think I have dressed the duster coat for a casual, smart and classy look! I hope you like! Please comment which one you like the most and HOW would YOU style a black duster coat, I would love to hear ^^
