Grey White & Black

16/01/2017

When I shop for winter coats keeping warm takes priority over looking good, haha but with so many beautiful puffer coats on the market, I believe that we can keep warm while looking good. Layering is a good way to keep warm but I don’t particularly like to wear so many pieces at once especially if they are heavy.
This makes me feel uncomfortable. If layering is not done correctly, it can make you appear bulky which I’m sure none of us really want unless that’s the look you are going for.

What I love about this coat is that it is so light-weight – and at the same time extremely warm. When I bought the coat I promised myself that I would never again buy heavy coats. ( I don’t always keep promises I make to myself when it comes to buying clothes). The pattern and grey and white colour are so beautiful. It is reversible but up until now, I have worn it only on the grey and white side. I paired it with Stuart Weitzman over-knee boots which are not really appropriate for snow, as the soles are too thin. A  chunkier rubber sole with a profile would have been a better choice for that day.

    Super stylish coat, i love that it reverses, how cool, and warm! Love it with the boots, but I agree a different boot would be better in the snow! So chic!

    This jacket is perfect for winter! I am the same with lightweight coats, heavy ones just drag you down and make me feel tired. I love anything reversible so you found a winner with this one as now you have two coats in one. So much fun! I hope you have a great week Yvonne 🙂 xx
