Slouch Coat – Topshop // Jeans – Zara // Slingback shoes – Zara // Roll neck jersey – ASOS // Watch – Vintage Omega
This is the only coat I have bought this year whilst my fellow fashion bloggers are showing off their 5th coat of the season. I already have every colour and in my preferred palette and because I tend to be quite a basic, minimalistic dresser in my day to day wardrobe; the style of coats I have will last a few winters. One coat I was missing was a glorious navy maxi coat. Well…. I’m also on the look out for the perfect aviator shearling jacket that won’t cost me an absolute fortune and is real leather.
I’m a huge fan of oversized, longline coats at the moment. I just can’t think of an outfit you wouldn’t be able to wear with them! They are also perfect for throwing over a little dress during the party season and keeping you warm. I remember the days of going out in minus freezing in a skimpy outfit because I couldn’t find a coat that matched my outfit and my mum begging me to put a coat on. I hear this crazy behaviour is still practised up north?!
Here is a selection of my favourite maxi/slouch coats you can buy now and happy Christmas Eve eve!
