As an avid fan of Zara and a regular wearer of classic black, I was overcome with joy when I found this bang on trend overcoat within their winter offering.
Whilst the fashion world turns its focus to black this season, it can sometimes become difficult to find the right piece that works, without looking too heavy. A black garment can often provide the perfect example of fashion that wears the individual as opposed to the other way round. However, when worn correctly, this piece will always appear chic and stylish.
With its glossy sleeves, the piece instantly becomes interesting, effectively introducing an alternative texture to your outfit. Its mixed fabric exterior is made up mainly of polyester, cotton and polyvinyl chloride – making it durable and functional. Its classic cut provides a slim silhouette, gives the appearance of timeless style, whilst the sleeves add a sleek modern twist.
When paired with tailored bottoms and black shoes it will give an effortless, refined look; whereas when worn with boots and dark denim, with the added extra of a chunky scarf or snood, the result will be a more playful one that mixes several textures and styles.
Outerwear on the whole has seen much attention this autumn/winter, with many designers experimenting with alternative shapes, cuts and fabrics. So whatever one you ultimately go for, try to be adventurous and take advantage of the vibrant range on offer.
The Overcoat with Faux Leather Sleeves is available at Zara now, priced at £149.00.
