Finding the perfect coat for the Autumn and Winter can be tricky. I don’t usually go for padded coats and I’ve found it hard to find one that I like in the past. After our last freezing Winter, I thought I’d think ahead and find a cosy coat that would keep me warm no matter how cold it might get. A padded coat was the warmest I could think of and, when I came across this teal coat on ASOS, I instantly loved it! It looked both stylish and warm – exactly what I was looking for!
Despite the coat being teal, I think it works with a lot of colours, especially blues, greens and yellows which all work perfectly for the Autumn. I like that the coat has a hood, as it’s really practical if it rains or if the air is really chilly. The padding inside the coat is thick enough to keep me warm, but the coat doesn’t feel like it’s weighing me down when I wear it. I went for a size up from what I usually buy as the coat was described as fitted, meaning I can layer up with jumpers and cardigans underneath on a colder day.
Here, I’ve paired the coat with my ripped high waisted jeans and brown boots for an autumnal look. I think brown boots work really well with the coat, and pretty much any pair of jeans would pair well. I think a padded coat like this one is perfect for any day time occasion when the weather turns colder, as I can layer up underneath it and keep warm whilst still wearing a coat that matches my style.
This teal padded coat by Brave Soul can be found on ASOS’ website here. It’s on the expensive side at a price of £40 in the sale, but I think that it’s an investment worth making for a stylish, practical coat that will last for many years. The coat is also available in other colours, and there’s a longer version too which would be perfect for the colder Winter months. I know that I’ll be much more prepared if we have a cold Winter again thanks to this coat!
