We may be only into the second month of the year but I’m calling it: I’ve found the best coat of 2022, and it comes courtesy of ARKET.
It’s just so damn perfect that I think you can stop searching and dedicate the rest of the year to other sartorial pursuits, such as shopping for a great designer handbag.
The trench is part of the Scandi brand’s new in section, meaning it just dropped this week, and I can tell it’ll sell quickly, so you’d better hurry so I don’t beat you to it.
Dubbed the ‘cotton linen coat’, it’s cut at a flattering calf length and is slightly oversized, immediately making it look more expensive. It’s crafted from a blend of linen and cotton and features a slightly rounded collar as well as slanted pockets and tortoiseshell buttons down the front.
In other words, it’s chic and practical and comes in at just £150, an absolute bargain for a timeless item such as this one.
Now I will say that I ARKET have just launched another great trench, so I feel obliged to include it too. Called the ‘oversized car coat’ (why wouldn’t you need a car coat?), it’s slightly less conventional in that it features snap buttoning, is styled even more oversized and has raglan-cut sleeves.
It is beautiful nonetheless, and could be yours for £190. Something to look forward to for spring.
