This season coats have been doing the talking and proved that they are a statement wardrobe essential in their own right. From shearling lined parkas to pastel pink coats in varying sizes and textures, there really is something for everyone.
When I first laid eyes on this gorgeous ASOS check coat I knew it had to be mine. I was instantly drawn to the check print that to my delight included pink but also had an uncanny resemblance to the Stella McCartney 'Harvey' Coat. At a mere fraction of the price I was eager to add it to my basket as you can well imagine. When it arrived (next day - courtesy of ASOS premier) I was so impressed with the quality not to mention it fit like a glove. The website really does not do this coat enough justice and it is even more beautiful in person. If I were to give you one good piece of advice it would be to purchase this coat immediately as I am positive it will sell out soon.
My ASOS coat has found a new companion in my Whistles reversible clutch. I love the versatility of this pouch and how I can mix and match it with various outfits making it a great yet affordable staple. Better still, I managed to bag twenty percent off at the time which of course justified my purchase.
Will you be investing in a check coat this winter? What are your thought on this Stella-esque coat from ASOS? I would love to know. If this particular check coat isn't for you, Topshop have some great alternatives here and here.
