We often speak about the extreme importance of investing in high-quality, durable outerwear that will be sure to last you for many years to come. However, this usually involves spending a large amount of money, which is not always viable (or necessary).
Zara, the world famous Spanish fashion giant, are renowned for creating high quality, contemporary staples at an affordable price point – this beautiful wool coat from the AW12 collection is a case in point. Coming in a deep brown colour, red-orange flecks have been incorporated into the body of the design in order to inject new life into a traditional piece of attire.
The detailing is both refined and classic, with a front pocket for that mandatory pocket square accent and a central vent on the back. However, our favourite feature is the patterned collar lining – when ‘popped’ it adds an unexpected injection of character to the whole aesthetic. This coat, as always, comes in a tailored, slim fit, which should hopefully save you a trip to your seamstress.
This muted wool coat is the perfect outer layer for any British heritage inspired outfit. It would look superb paired with a crisp white shirt, a solid knit tie, a pair of rugged chinos and a good polished pair of brown brogues. Of course, you can always dress it down with your heavy duty boots, dark jeans and a thin knit.
This piece retails at just £99.99, which is an extremely reasonable price for a classic wool overcoat, so do not hesitate to add it to your wardrobe. With winter rapidly approaching, every layer of your attire should be both warm and stylish, and this is exactly what this Zara wool coat offers.
