Please note due to the cut of this coat it is quite difficult to determine accurate measurements so use the aforementioned as a rough guide only.
WEAR | Remains in excellent condition.
WHEN | The deep rich colours of this coat allow it to be effortlessly paired with a little black dress for evening events. For the day, pair it with slim black jeans, a fine black polo and loafers for a more casual look. Don't be afraid to experiment with a light blue washed pair of denim to really accentuate the contrast. This exquisite coat has gold accents throughout the material so we recommend pairing with gold jewelry only. Due to the wonderful oversized nature of the garment we recommend leaving it unbuttoned to showcase the outfit underneath so as to create height on the wearer.
