How to wear a wrap coat this season.

If you are looking for a lightweight coat to wear over a jacket or thick  jumper the wrap shawl collar coat could well be the answer. A bit more formal and practical than the popular cape the wrap is ideal worn now over a blouse or light sweater and can be layered over a thicker sweater or jacket later in the season when the weather gets really chilly.

I am wearing a slightly deeper shade of “Biscay Bay”, which I would describe as a blue toned green.

I have teamed my wrap with a pair of wide leg trousers and a bright pink polo neck sweater. It would look just as good for smart casual week-end wear worn with jeans or slim trousers.

Similar wrap coats at Nordstrom,  turtleneck sweaters and wide black trousers.

    great pictures of you, and it’s nice that you tied your outfit as an example of how to use the season color palette. Thank you!

    I just bought an unlined Merlot wrap coat at Zara-I love the colour and I am looking forward to wearing it this fall and winter.

    That color is lovely! I’d love to find something similar (unlined) for our climate.
