Tweed Boyfriend Coat

Tweed Blazer Coat - New Look
Cream Aran Jumper - Primark
Paperbag Waist Shorts - ASOS

I've finally got around to taking some photos of this coat. I first spotted it back in November and searched every New Look across the land for it but had no luck. I tried on a very similar one in Topshop and I was even considering the £80 price tag which is quite a lot for an impulse buy.
With huge effort, I put the Topshop one down and mooched off to New Look for one last look. It must have been fate when I found it.... for half the price!! They didn't have any size 10s left, so I went for the 12 to make room for thick jumpers or layers. And managed to knock a further 10% off for a small 'fault' (loose threads) at the back. So in total I paid under £18.00

I've hardly taken it off and although I've bought a few coats this Autumn/Winter, this one has to be my favourite. I love the looser 'boyfriend' fit and the whole androgynous look really appeals to me, especially in the colder months. I'll be wearing this with skinny jeans, boots, shirts and collars. It also looks great slung over a pretty dress and its surprisingly thick and warm. I wore this today to take photographs at the airport (long story) and it makes my everyday clothes feel a little smarter.

  1. I still haven't managed to find that coat in a New Look store, so gutted because it's absolutely perfect! Really suits you, and looks sweet with some burnt orange popping out (:

  3. Looks like it was meant to be! The sizing is great even if it isn't what you'd normally go for.
