QUEEN MICHELLE: THE TONAL HALF LONG COAT
The lovely Queen Michelle from Kingdom of Style has featured our tonal grey 'Half-Long' jacket this week. We love this jacket and hope you do too!
Here are the words she wrote to inspire you...
"Grey is one of my favourite colours for coats. It feels a little less dramatic than black but it doesn't overwhelm in quite the same way. With a black coat, the coat is definitely the focus. It swallows up everything else, which is great when you have a stunning coat to show off of course. But grey can become part of your outfit a little more, as it's neutral enough to work with most colours, so when we see what's happening underneath the coat, it feels less jarring.
When I tried the grey panelled 5Preview cocoon coat from their new collection, I knew this would be a simple but massively useful coat to have. I'm a sucker for panelling, as some of you might have noticed, so the two shades of grey leading to black lent this coat everything it needed to work as both a classic, and as a little something to add an edgier element to your outfit.
The menswear inspired cut compliments the cocoon shape, resulting in a very wearable, everyday kind of garment. Throwing on a nicely cut coat over a relatively 'safe' outfit means you always at least feel quite pulled together.
I've been wearing it most days and it just seems to look good with everything."
Watch this space for a GIVE AWAY soon.
