Blue coats! ♥ I’ve been lusting after one ever since the craze about pink and pastel coats started last fall, but wanting something and finding it are worlds apart most of the time. I know about that Zara blazer that keeps popping up on my newsfeed on several social networks, but Zara just doesn’t fit on my tiny frame… So let’s just hope major high street retailers come up with more versions of baby blue coats and jackets this season!
Looking through the fall/winter 2014-15 collections shown during fashion month, I discovered coats in several shades of blue across all runway shows and lookbooks, ranging from pastel hues over the brightest blue to cobalt, ink and indigo. The materials and cuts the designers used were just as diverse: we saw everything from fuzzy (faux) fur to wool and mohair, shapes ranging from boxy and oversized to fitted, from belted to classic double-breasted closures … So until next winter, chances are good I will have at least one baby blue model in my wardrobe – but if I still want it then is yet another question!
What’s your opinion on the blue coat and jacket trend this year? Do you own one already or do you stay out of hypes likes this in general? Oh, and if you have tips on finding one for my petite frame, do tell me! ♥
See more blue coats and all the best looks from the fall/winter 2014-15 runways on my Pinterest board.
