I think it’s safe to say I’m a coat addict. I’ve been collecting them for years now and I usually invest in classic shapes like the pea coat as I know they’ll never go out of fashion. When I saw this red wool coat by Australian designer Nicholas I was surprised by how much I was drawn to its modern and structured shape. A little out of the norm from my overflowing coat collection. I can honestly say I’ve never had so many comments on any other my other coats before, nor have I worn one so much in such a short period of time. Within its lapels are small magnets which make closing my coat look so much more sleek and chic without the hassle of bulky buttons. It also makes catching elevators that much more entertaining when my magnetic coat glues to the sides of the elevator. Win!
I paired this with a thigh high split maxi dress is actually lined with a playsuit underneath which made swirling and twirling much easier and also made me less self conscious about what exactly everyone was seeing on the street. Add my favourite go-to pieces for the night with pops of red and my satin Charlotte Olympia Heels and you’re looking at a super easy evening outfit which I wore to dinner with the Mango team and the girls.
