It’s been years since I’ve dreamed of owning a white coat or blazer. Every time I was just about to buy one, I managed to talk myself out of it.
With three kids and a dog, it’s really hard for me to keep anything stain free. Now that my kids are slightly older and less prone to cleaning their mouths and snob all over me (if you have kids, you would know this is one of their favorite things to do) I finally decided to go for it and hoped for the best!
Knowing it wouldn’t last very long anyways, I went on a mission to find the most affordable yet fashionable coat out there. After days of searching all the high street stores on Kings Road, I gave up and decided to check out Zara.
I was extremely surprised to find not one but three different kinds of white coats. Two of them were lighter and more for spring/ summer. I wanted something that could stand lower temperatures so I went with the thicker material. With a price tag of £95.99, it was a steal!
I’ve had this coat for a couple of weeks now and although it has already been stained a few times here and there, I’ve been able to wash it off quickly with soap and water. Amazing!
Styling tips: if you love wearing black and you are looking for a change or to brighten up your winter wardrobe, a white coat will immediately give you a chic look that also looks fresh and elegant. If you have a more colorful outfit, a white coat can tone it down and pull it together. If you are trying to pull off an all white look, match it with a purse in a different color to break the monochromatic scheme.
