The weather has been testing me lately. One day it’s a beautiful 70 degree day and the next it’s 52 and raining. I don’t know why I would expect anything different, considering that this is the way September in the Midwest always seems to play out. Yet, despite having lived through this many times before, I find myself unprepared for the mildly-cold days that are bound to pop up as winter comes closer.
While pondering my wardrobe decisions, I’ve come to the conclusion that the best way to prepare for these sort of days, for me, is to have a good coat on hand. Not a light summer coat or a heavy duty 3 layer protective winter coat, but a nice, quality, fashionable, coat that is able to withstand the bi-polar weather that occurs during Fall. While I’ve certainly spotted quite a few coats I’d be more than happy to covet, the one that happens to be at the top of my wish list right now is the Miya Coat from All Saints.
The Miya Coat by All Saints is made from Italian Melton wool and comes in both “pebble” and “ink.” The design elements of the piece include dropped shoulders and a large collar with contrasting fabric underneath. The oversized silhouette of the coat is very on trend for this season, and is great for layering bulky knit sweaters and large infinity scarfs underneath. Overall, the Miya Coat is sleek and sophisticated making it a perfect option for the office for years to come.
The Miya Coat also has a robe-like belt (pictured above) that cinches in at the waist and closes the coat to protect you from the exterior elements. This is by far one of the coolest (or warmest…get it?) elements of the piece and what ultimately makes the coat as fashion-forward as it is.
