Coat Corner: Patent trim belted wool coat from Bebe

Wool_trench_coat The style of a classic trench coat, plus the warmth of wool – that’s what drew us to this Bebe coat, because let’s face it: trench coats are very smart, very stylish, and very fashionable right now, but the problem with them is that they’re not very warm. Sure, they’ll be your BFFs during Autumn and Spring, but when the winter chill really hits, you’re going to be looking for something warmer to wrap up in.

This coat is the perfect compromise. At first glance, it looks just like a trench, but it should be warmer than one, and the patent detailing on the belt adds a touch of glamour.

We love this beige colour (or “champagne”, as Bebe call it), but if you’re worried about your dry cleaning bill, the grey or black versions could be a better buy. Of course, if you’re not remotely worried about keeping it mud free, this is also available in winter white, and is $249.

    It’s very Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I like it. The black one is almost gestapo chic!
