Think it depends on how old your DD is...if she were more adult age I would say that it'll be a classic worn on evening 'do's' for years and years to come. My cousins and I still pinch our Nans coats that look like this (although longer) that she's had since she was a young woman!

so yes adult

I think that's lovely. It's such a classic style that I think it will age well. She can wear it over jeans or nice evening dresses. You could always go for black if you're unsure.

I'm very envy. It's such a nice luxurious thing to get as a Christmas present.

I'd love it if I were her. Is she slim? If she's curvy it might be a bit Pat Butcher. Which is why fat old me isn't getting one.

think she'd wear it more
