|J. Crew Double-cloth Lady Day Coat with Thinsulate® | Zara Shirt with Bow Collar | Forever 21 Watercolor Floral Pencil Skirt | MICHAEL by Michael Kors Selma Large East West Satchel (reviewed here) | Zara Court Shoes|
If I were asked to name the five best clothing purchases that I’ve ever made, this coat will make the list every time, regardless of the criteria.
The style is flattering on even those with straighter figures, not unlike my own, with a slight flare at the waist. It’s only moderately warm on its own but can be easily winterized with the right accessories.
Most female members of my extended family–from age 20 to age 80–own this coat (thanks to me) and all wear it remarkably well. It doesn’t age or infantilize the wearer, which speaks to its accessibility and versatility.
I am thrilled that J. Crew decided to bring it back in a dozen colors this fall (also in sunny yellow and light gray, which are not pictured below).
