If you haven’t cottoned on already, coats are a big weakness of mine. I’ve got a healthy collection (particularly for someone who lives in a subtropical region) and I justify my collection because coats are such timeless pieces. On a winter-style front, they’re a must. And getting the right coat is key to chilly weather fashion success!
I’ve had this Nanushka coat on my wishlist for over a year. I first saw Hannah of Cocobeautea wearing it and thought it was the ultimate ‘statement’ minimalist coat. So you can imagine how quickly I pounced when the coat was reduced!
The Alamo coat forms part of Nanushka’s permanent line and it has achieved cult status amongst the street style set for the effortless minimal vibes it gives off. It comes in various warm neutral tones, such as camel, stone, cashew and houndstooth (which is a mix of brown and black print).
The coat is a luxurious mix of wool and silk – 90/10 respectively – and feels lush and soft to the touch. In terms of features, it has two patch pockets, dropped shoulders (for a more relaxed feel) and the all important self-tie fastening belt.
I’m petite and I’m wearing a size XS. In my opinion, the coat is large to size because of its relaxed cut. I was initially concerned that it might sit too long on me but with heeled boots, it sits nicely above my ankles (I’m 5’2″ for reference). I’ll need to take the sleeves up as I’ve just folded them under in these photos.
The coats are currently reduced as part of the suite of end-of-season sales we’re seeing pop up and so I’ve linked a few of the currently reduced coats in the houndstooth print and camel below for you to take advantage.
Run, don’t walk!
