Last Winter I bought two coats, one being a leather sleeved boyfriend style and the other a burgundy fitted coat with detachable fur collar, as you can imagine, they aren’t really appropriate for spring/summer. When the weather is rubbish (which is quite often the case) you want a coat that is on trend and comfortable, without being to heavy but warm enough to take off the chill in the air and protect you from the rain. Typical british weather, ay. I searched everywhere for one that I liked but nothing really stuck out at me, after countless fitting rooms and online purchases then returns I had pretty much give up.
The camel colour makes it perfect for summery outfits that are mainly bright colours or pale jeans, that said it also looks so smart and put together with some dark blue denim jeans. The floral detailing repeated on the cuffs and up the inner zip seam really adds a touch of femininity whilst still keeping it very versatile and casual.
Finally, lets just take a moment to appreciate this lining. I know its inside and you never get to see but isn’t this just lush. I am a sucker for a good lining, it’s a little like matching under wear. No one can see it but you know it’s there and it makes you feel more confident. The added details of this coat really add to the quality of the piece.
Joe Browns offer a wide range of unique clothing for both men and women, if you haven’t already checked them out I’d definitely recommend them. The service is 1st class. A huge thanks to them for sending me this coat, I can’t believe after all the searching for the perfect summer coat I finally found one and I love it 🙂
Have you found your staple summer coat this season? If so where was it from?
