One of our merry readers Julie has noted that there were no photos of Autumn Phillips on Christmas morning, as the British royals were going to church in Sandringham. Autumn was there, of course, with her husband Peter Phillips. Having missed her in that post, I figured she gets a post of her own.

So today’s fashion feature is Autumn’s coat that Christmas morning. At first, I wasn’t too keen on this coat, with its mix of blue, fuschia, black and white. But the longer I looked at it, the more I like it. Sure, it’s different. But by pairing it with black, I think Autumn has made it a statement piece, rather than something which hurts the eyes. I also do like that flouncy hem, which is better seen in the photo below of Autumn with Peter, Prince Harry and Zara Phillips.

I’m curious about what you think of the piece. Do you like it or not?
