In the city yesterday for a meeting, I was caught in a downpour, so I popped into the Westfield store, snapped up this coat in cream and put it straight on. It will look great over anything! A silky, floppy trench coat like this works for every day, but it will also take you into situations that are quite dressy – it’s suitable for a business meeting or draped over a black dress for evening. Belt it tightly (if you have a waist!), very sexy when worn with high heels, or leave it open and flowing over skinny or wide leg pants.
The simplicity of this coat, with its lack of buttons and superb European fabric is just so chic – you’ll feel like a million dollars even if you’re in sneakers and jeans.
