Fantasy Buy of the Week: Paul & Joe Sister wool triple button coat

Green_swing_coat

We’ve started looking at winter coats already, and we were quickly distracted by this one by Paul & Joe Sister. At £300, it’s at the lower end of the “fantasy” league, especially given that wool coats tend to be one of those things that people are willing to spend that bit more on, but it’s still a bit too pricey for us, which means making it our Fantasy Buy of the Week is probably as close as we’re ever going to get to it.

The bright green colour was the thing that first drew our eyes to this, of course, but on closer inspection, we were also impressed with the  shape – short swing coats like this have real 60s-style appeal, and can look particularly good, as shown here, with a mini skirt. If you don’t want to show that much leg, though, it’ll also look good with longer pieces. Get it at ASOS.

    I’m not sure if I’m comfortable with that shade of green but I do love the shape of the coat. Unfortunately, I happen to be allergic to wool, so wool coats (unless it’s acrylic wool) are sadly not the sort of thing I can buy. =(
