I have been wanting to pick up a non body con coat for quite some time now. I have a couple of winter coats that are form fitting which I do like, but it can make wearing blazers and bulky sweaters a bit difficult. So when I spied this extra long double breasted man tailored coat at Mango, I knew I had to have it. It is not a heavy wool coat so it is probably not going to work for extremely cold weather but is perfect for warmer winter days when the temperatures are in the forties and fifties. Although with the more generous cut you could wear it with layers of warm clothes and so you may even get away with wearing it when the temperatures drop in to the thirties.
Here I paired it with a long sleeved striped sweater from J Crew, gray jeans from SOLD Design Lab, and white Vans. Then I added a boxy handbag from Guess in a fun burgundy red color which brightens up the whole look. The double breasted gold buttons also had an interesting detail to the outfit and ties in nicely with the nautical feel of the stripes. The sweater, coat and the vans were all on sale when I bought them. But you know me the consummate bargainista, I love to get a good deal!
