I just bought one from jaegar as well and I love it. Wear it with jeans and casual clothing too - it won't look frumpy. Just avoid getting one too long if you are a shortarse otherwise you can look a bit swamped imo
Thanks so much for your help, I have just bought this from Jaeger with £60 off, so fab price and lovely coat, but family reaction was underwhelming... I'm 5'7 so length not a problem. I have a red one from Jigsaw the same style/length and wear it loads
Always a classic, love them. I had a great one from Next's petite range a few years ago but it's gone bobbly AF. Can't find anything like it (simple, single button) so am seriously considering paying like £200 to have a £60 coat copied by a tailor.
I'd agree SheGot. I have the Jaeger wrap coat and it's very long - I reckon you probably need to be at least 5'8" to carry it off. You also need to be on the thin side for it not to look bulky when fastened, but it's a great coat for lanky folk.
BeaBoo I have a mid length vintage Harrods camel coat I paid £20 for in a charity shop in N Yorks. It's lovely and could have been made to measure. DH reckons someone probably died in it, but I couldn't care less - I love a good chazzer find.
