Still in the market for your winter coat but afraid to commit? Selecting a military style in suits-every-skin tone navy will see you though the next few years.
The classic styling with oversized collars (we love that you can style these collars up a la Victoria Beckham) equals instant wardrobe classic, and we like that because it means it’s not shouting ‘AUTUMN WINTER 2015’ – signaling to everyone in bright neon lighting how you brought into that key trend of 2015. Then fast forward to 2017 everybody knows about it and how old your coat is. First world problems you might say, but nobody likes to be ‘So last season’.
So what more do you need to know about the Joanna Hope military coat? The contrasting gold buttons and detachable faux fur collar adds a glamorous touch and the detachable belt enables you to cinch in that waist (great for us British pear shapes) or style it out and wear loose – This looks particularly effective with slouchy trousers, a striped roll neck and an extra long chunky scarf. We also like this look over an evening dress for an edgier look if you’re not into evening coats. Its longer length also means warmer pins and the best bit for the time poor purchaser – its machine washable! No more expensive dry cleaning bills attached to this purchase.
