Would You Wear: A Boyfriend Coat?

A few months ago I got this idea in my head that I wanted a winter coat that looked like it belonged to my husband but fit like it belonged to me. I wanted it to have dropped shoulders, minimal buttons along the front, and be made of heavy wool. Something really oversized but also tailored. I didn’t figure it really existed, so I took to eBay and hounded men’s coats until I found the one, then took it to my tailor to have the shoulders taken up. It was a process.

Turns out Top Shop had the same idea as me and I could have saved myself a LOT of trouble. :)

But man am I excited for this look this winter!

Tell me … would you wear a boyfriend coat? A few really good ones, after the jump!

Limited Edition Rib Insert Coat

This one's from ASOS and I love the long length. Super warm and practical but also just boxy enough to give it some life.
Get this coat from ASOS for $211.08
