Yep that’s right I do mean ‘dream coat’, who even knew that was a thing right? I’ve been looking for the perfect faux fur coat for what seems like forever… but the search has finally come to an end! So what is the dream coat?I’ve been looking for a coat that’s fluffy that doesn’t make me look ‘puffy’ and is super warm too. I know right even reading about what I want THE coat to do is tiring and trust me finding it was even harder.
From the moment I saw Insta babes such as Lissy Roddy wearing them I had serious coat envy (& wardrobe too). Like who doesn’t want her clothes selection? Anywayyyyy at this point I knew it was my mission to find the perfect coat and I wouldn’t settle for anything less.
I was pretty sure I’d searched every website, every shop I passed and obviously filtering from ‘low to high’ where possible as that’s how I shop and I have no shame. There were many coats that were either; too short, too long, too puffy or I just couldn’t get my arms in them (workout problems).
Where can I find this dream coat?
Until one day a few weeks ago I came across the coat of my dreams whilst searching the boohoo sale. It was reduced from £50 to £40 and it must have been fate because they were out of nearly all sizes but mine. For reference the coat is oversized and I got a size 8.
What makes this coat so dreamy?
The coat arrived the next day and I couldn’t wait to try it on, so much so that I practically ripped open the bag (who needs return bags right?). I almost ripped the coat in the process too as I was in such a hurry to try it on… luckily the coat was unharmed.
I’ve worn it on every possible occasion since it arrived. It’s not only super soft and fluffy but extremely warm. Due to being oversized it is pretty roomy, and I can wear a jumper underneath without being too restricted and yes my arms fit in it too. Success. I’m a pretty cold person so it couldn’t be more ideal.
One thing that makes the coat even better is the inside of the pockets are fluffy too, which was unexpected! The collar is oversized so really keeps your neck warm… I saw this coat available in Green, Camel and almost White too but Black is by far my favourite. It’s also snap fastening so the way it does up is almost invisible.
I purchased this coat in Black because in my opinion it goes with everything! I can where it wherever, whenever without it clashing with my clothes or hair as I get pretty bored with my appearance easily and have the tendency to chop and change.
