The Perfect Winter Coat (Under £50)

Thursday, 8 February 2018

Outside, the weather is 3°C.

The winds are shaking and winter is in full effect.

In my second year spent in the cold season, I thought I would splurge on a new but affordable coat. One that wasn't bought on a whim from Gap Kids. I wanted a coat that was versatile, sleek and minimalist. 

After scouring the Internet, I had found The Perfect Winter Coat (and more!)

sunglasses: Accessorize   |   shawl: (DIY)   |   coat: ASOS
shirt: H&M   |   jeans: Superdry   |   shoes: FentyxPuma

I chose ASOS Slim Boyfriend Coat during Boxing Day when many pieces were marked down on sale. Then £41, now £26. 

It was the perfect coat for my everyday wear, fitting in my almost all-black wardrobe perfectly. With its slim fit and wide pockets, It has become the coat I use often. At least, compared to my well-loved but bold pastel pink skater coat and an unsightly oversized Boy Medium's Windbreaker.

What I love most about my new coat is how easy it is to style up or down, since it blends into my wardrobe. I matched it with my H&M Cropped Hoodie and SuperDry High Waisted Skinny Jeans. One of my go-to outfits to look somewhat trendy at Uni.

While searching for my coat, I came across some other affordable pieces that caught my eye. To my surprise, there were all under £50! While they are different looks from the typical black I bought, it would certainly brighten any wardrobe. 

Personally, I think the faux fur trend is growing on me. 

Which one is your perfect coat?
