Looking back at my style preferences over the years, I noticed I would almost always jump for trendy and in-style pieces, which of course can add up pretty quickly with how much money I spend on clothing, and the amount of clothes in my closet that I don’t have room for, which then would lead to more and more closet clean outs. One of my goals for 2021 is to focus on investing in more timeless wardrobe staple pieces, even if that means investing in splurge-worthy items as well if I know I’ll wear it over and over again. And this coat is one of those timeless wardrobe staple pieces I know I’ll wear on repeat for a long time! As I’m writing this out, it has me thinking that maybe I should start a monthly series here on my blog of timeless wardrobe staple pieces. Let me know in the comments below if that’s something you’d be interested in!
I was gifted this open-front wool-blend coat through a collaboration with Chicwish and this style of coat has been on my wishlist for as long as I can remember. For some reason I never thought I could ever pull off a coat like this but always loved how it looked on others. I decided to go for it and is now one of my favorite coats I have in my wardrobe!
This style of coat is always trending and has been for years and I love that it just never goes out of style and is very chic. This one in particular has two pockets on the front, and a tie belt so you can tie it in the front and wear it like a robe if need be. For sizing reference, I am 5’1″ and wearing a size XS. It fits very well, and the length goes right past my knee.
While I am still currently working from home, I just know I’ll be wearing this coat a ton in the fall/winter time when commuting to an office again. But for now, any excuse to dress up these days I take it and this coat is one of my favorites. See below how I like to style this coat during this time of year! Would also be so cute with a nice pair of pumps or boots.
