The handy coat for throwing on over the christmas season is one I picked up in Penneys of all places..
Its a good colour albeit its not that warm but that’s ok as I intend on wearing it thrown over outfits.
Its not the warmest of coats but at €40 it looks the part for evening time…I’m forever leaving my coat behind somewhere when I go out for dinner or drinks, as its so easy to leave them behind (nothing worse than leaving an expensive coat behind in a restaurant/bar never to be found again so this coat is perfect just to have!!). My intention when buying this, was solely for wearing going out for dinner or Christmas drinks…
The other reason for choosing this Coat was it ll be perfect for the spring too when the weather is a lot less colder so I can transition to spring/summer…
Its a great colour as it goes with everything, I paired it with the checked trousers and black jumper but goes really well with grey colours too. In the spring I will wear it with blue jeans and pumped. The Grey culottes here are from a previous post, picked them up from Born Clothing and the boat neck jumper was penneys last year but you’ll find similar in penneys at the moment for €14.
I particular love the shape and lenght of this coat. It can be worn with dresses as it sits just at the knee and has subtle side splits. I also love that its belted. Its shape is almost bat winged on the shoulder sleeves area which makes it slightly over sized on top but fitted on the bottom. It is rather chic.
Now as I said its not that warm so you’d need to layer it up if you intend on buying it for every day wear, although in my opinion if its an every day winter coat you are looking for this isn’t going to keep you warm and you are better off investing in better quality.
I’m all for buying a good winter coat and spending a lot more than €40 for a good one. But as I said this is worth buying if you are looking to just have something to throw on over your outfit for a night out or a light coat for Spring!!
Hope you enjoyed this
Until next time
