Sometimes things just fall into place and make life that little bit easier – I love it when this happens! For the last two years when finding a winter coat I’ve agonised, looked at every single site and never really liked one enough or had to pay through the nose for it. Last year I got a great biker jacket from Simply Be, which took me AGES to find and then I thought about it as it was very expensive – and the year before I did without and wore layers under my old scruffy parka because there were none I liked.
HOWEVER, this all changed this year. I popped into Primark with a friend just to have a look and ended up finding the coat of my dreams!
It’s an oversized boyfriend/crombie style coat with disguised buttons and large lapels.
The colour is between a white and a grey which means it can go with so many different outfits/scarves.
The shape is much wider at the top and tapers down. Not so good for a pear shape but it fits my large bust and petite height perfectly.
This coat also comes in yellow, pink, baby blue and tartan so if they grey/white isn’t for you – there’s options!
This coat is so cosy and effortless to wear. I’m a size 22/24 but the size 20 fit me with room to spare. I like to have the extra room for layering in the super cold weather!
The best part of this coat? The price. It only cost me £25! I had been looking at ones for double that and more but this one is perfect and meant I had some money left over to buy a lovely popcorn jumper (which I’ll show you later) and some bits for Christmas! I can’t wait to layer this coat with trousers, boots, cute jumpers, big hats and scarves in a whole variety of colours!
Are you into the boyfriend coat look? Have you got a new winter coat this year, or making do?
