I ordered this plaid wool blend coat on a whim, and I didn’t expect much from this brand, but I actually love it!
I usually feel like long wool coats like this wear me, rather than me wearing them, but this one has such a nice streamlined silhouette.
There is no big collar or oversized lapels, no belt or anything to add extra bulk. Plus, the neutral color palette is gorgeous, and it looks and feels like a quality coat. It’s fully lined and runs true to size.
I wore it last week to meet a friend for lunch over a rust colored sweater and grey jeans, but today’s outfit is inspired by the neutral tones in the coat.
Because the components of this outfit are all fairly plain, I relied on the coat to add pattern and texture, and I also added gold chain link hoop earrings and a pearl station necklace.
The necklace is from Victoria Emerson, but I can’t find it online. It could be that it’s not online yet, or it could be sold out. I will keep checking.
I just love how this neutral plaid coat completes an outfit. I was never one to own more than one dressy winter coat, but as I get older, I realize how having a few coat options keeps your looks polished and sophisticated even when wearing very simple pieces… or maybe especially when wearing very simple pieces!
If you feel like a longer coat like this one is a bit much for your personal style or the area where you live, you can get the same effect out of a shorter coat. And of course, it doesn’t have to be plaid, but I do think it’s fun to have one print in your collection.
