A coat can really make or break an outfit. A stylish topper can take a look to the next level, while throwing on any-old winter jacket can ruin whatever you’ve got on underneath. When winter hits, I make sure I’ve got three coats in my closet to cover all my bases: a utilitarian parka for bundling up in on weekends and pairing with sportier/tomboy-inspired outfits, the everyday wool coat that can take you from the office right through to cocktail hour, and the special occasion coat for wearing over holiday dresses and out at night.
This Samone Coat from Club Monaco could easily pull a double duty as both an everyday coat and a special occasion coat. Its no-fuss timeless silhouette and neutral camel color makes it ideal for everyday use. It’s dressy enough for office attire but also looks great with a pair of boyfriend jeans and a striped tee.
The collarless neckline, however, elevates its “everyday” sensibility to “special occasion” status. I love the mod-feel of the collarline and the slightly oversized fabric buttons. The shortened sleeves are also great for accessorizing and showing off a nice pair of gloves.
If you’re worried about how chilly you might get wearing a coat with no collar, stock up on wooly snoods and infinity scarves. If you’re ready to suffer a little for fashion, and look absolutely faboo doing so, skip the scarf, button the coat up all the way, and throw a stop-you-in-your-tracks jeweled bib over top.
The Samone Coat is $369 over at Club Monaco.
