Last week during Nordstrom’s half-yearly sale I had one of the most major shopping scores of my young shopper career. This Vince car coat, which i’ve been eyeing for a while, was 40% off with the last one available in my size. I received the coat just a few days later and legitimately have not taken it off since. It is just so gorgeous (especially on a fuller figured girl, rather than the slim model) and I absolutely love it.
Truthfully, I don’t own any other item like this. It is the most draped, softly structured garment in my closet but I love it for precisely that reason. The way that the contrasting colors drape in the front, the length hitting right at my knees and freeing feel make it so much fun to wear.
The coat is wool and is a two-tone color with a light charcoal coating the outside, and a soft camel fully lining the interior. When the coat is turned up at the sleeves or blows in the wind, the gorgeous camel peeks through.
The snaps you see above technically work to drape the coat over and close on the opposite end, but I do not plan to wear it in this way at all. I love the blanket-like ability to wrap it, and even envision myself wearing it belted.
The bottom is a beautiful curved hem with slits on either side (much more flattering in my opinion than up the back). The coat also falls fully to my knees in the front and the back, eliminating any unflattering cut across my widest part.
I absolutely could not ask for a more fun yet timeless addition to my closet.
