A Check Coat for Cold Days

Check Coat

Gosh it’s so cold! But I have the perfect check coat to keep you cosy. This has been the ultimate find in Penneys this past week, and I have been getting so many nice comments on Instagram and Facebook asking to know more. Well, here is how I have styled it! Before I go on, this coat is currently in stock in Penneys so no waiting necessary and it’s just €40! I want the check to stand out, so I’ve gone for a black outfit underneath. Penneys have a huge range of knits this year, and a chunky black one will never go unworn. What you can’t see from the pics (it was way too cold to take my coat off!) are the cut outs on the jumper, just to give it some detail. If you love jumpers and tend to live in them at this time of year, try and look for styles that have something that makes them stand out, whether that’s some embellishment or a different cut to what to you usually buy. Make sure you try them on with the coat you will style them with, just to make sure they fit underneath. Mine fit perfectly under my check coat! 

Denim mini skirts are a long time favourite piece of mine; I think they should be in a capsule wardrobe! This black one is a different cut for me as I usually go for a-line styles. This is more fitted and has a 90s vibe going on if you ask me. So I think I’ll be wearing this in Spring with some logo tees and sweatshirts. You may have noticed the faux fur stole too, now this I have had since last year and was also a Penneys find. It’s still going strong and it’s one I wear a lot over Christmas (I have a couple of these!). I like the contrast of the patterns on this look, so don’t be afraid to clash them! 

And just a final little styling note! I am wearing these 100 denier tights that come in a pack of five. They are the best opaque tights on the market and they wash really well (30 degrees does it!). Invest in a few packs to wear with dresses and skirts over the festive season!
