The corset coat proves that while winter is here, it doesn’t have to be boring.
Everyone needs a ridiculous coat, right? (Right, Ashley, right.) I spotted this black corset coat at ASOS (psst, it’s on mega sale right now for under $45!) and had to have it. It was silly and super fun– plus I was very curious if a puffer coat (i.e., a known figure-swallower) flattering. Could it be done?
Indeed, yes! This corset coat (and yes, those are working corset strings; pull ’em as tight as you want!) was a great alternative to the oversized orange version I wore last week. I pulled it on with a pair of high-waisted black denim and black patent boots for an all-black, all-badass look. And, again, functional fashion: this sucker is quite warm.
Shop the look:
Don’t mind me if I add a few more puffer jackets to the wardrobe. Oversized, cropped, hooded– I am down. They’re cozy as can be, and with fashion-forward styling like a corset, you can be sure you’ll stand out in a crowd of basic parkas and wool peacoats. This corset coat also comes in a gorgeous bright red (with a printed corset!) and is on sale, if you really want to knock ’em dead. (It’s in my cart right now.)
Speaking of cozy, check back Thursday: I’m sharing all my cozy favorites right now (many of which are on sale). I don’t know about you, but January is all about getting warm and staying that way. Thursday’s post aims to do just that.
