I splurged! On a brand that always makes me want to splurge: Totême. I’ve had the signature Totême Annecy Coat on my wish list for years and when I saw that it was released in a new houndstooth print, it was hook, line and sinker.  This isn’t my first houndstooth coat, I purchased the iconic Nanushka Alamo Coat in Houndstooth a couple of years back but I ended up letting it go as I found it a tad too oversized for me.  While the Annecy Coat isn’t as oversized, it’s still cut to a relaxed silhouette without looking like it’s too big on me.   

The coat features an exaggerated wide shawl lapel and concealed seam pockets that are framed with generous sleeves and side slits.  The fabric is a luxurious blend of wool and cashmere meaning the coat beautifully drapes and falls just on the ankles, and is the perfect weight for layering or just over a t-shirt on milder days.  

For reference, I took a size XS – I’m 5’2″ (158cm), a typical AU 8 and the size is perfect for me.

As the temperature has dropped here in Sydney, I’ve found myself reaching for this coat a ton as it is so easy to style. While it’s technically a print, the monochromatic black and white houndstooth goes with everything – beige, grey, khaki and denim, just to name a few.

Here are four of the many ways that I’ve styled it:
