Orange, thats right it orange. Don’t worry you haven’t started seeing black as orange, Chloe Knott has brought an orange coat. Every year it comes to that time when the hunt for the new winter coat begins with last year coats coat feeling a bit over worn and tired. Instead of the normal black or dark grey this year I decided to mix it up with a splash of orange.
From going out to find one I knew I wasn’t wanting the normal black or grey and did want something different, thinking more in the ream of camel coloured. It was the camel coloured version of this coat which drew my eye to it but when I noticed the orange one I knew that was the one I wanted.
With wanting your coat to last the whole winter you want it to be something very versatile. Now if I was someone who wore a lot of different colours then the orange may not be the best for a coat that you want to go with everything, but as someone who has a very dark coloured wardrobe this is a brilliant way of adding colour to any outfit without much effort. I think this statement coat it a brilliant way to do this.
The main reason I love this coat so much is the cut. Its such a classic cut which works for everyday and for more smarter occasions and will go with most other items. Despite the fact I have been talking all about the fact that it is orange it’s not too bright and is a slight darkened/muted orange which I think make it a bit more wearable with lots of other things.
I got this coat from Zara for £59.99 which defiantly was the top end of my budget however for a good quality winter coat I that will get plenty of use I think it was a worth wile investment. For a long time I have looked at Zara coats and always admired them from afar with them usually being out of my price range so I’m very glad this year they have come out with some lovely ones with a slightly lower price tag.
If orange isn’t your colour this same coat comes in 4 other colours of black, grey, camel and yellow.
