I love this coat - i have had it about 3/4 years - it is Mcqueen and i never ever wear it - maybe once or twice. You know those fashion rules - large always meets slim - so in theory this should work with a slim silhouette on the bottom - well it doesn't - it finishes at a particularly unflattering point on my thigh and i completely lose my waist etc - i feel unflattered in it shall we say and that is the death knell for me.
Then along came my newly designed by me trousers - i dont know why i tried them with the coat i have just always liked grey and camel and i have to say the coats i thought would work didn't, so out came this little beauty and i felt like i had just stepped out of a Charlie Girl ad - i loved my (to date frustrating) coat, i cuddled it, it became the perfect car coat to my perfect wide trousers. So next time you have a frustrating piece, ignore the silly rules and try with something unexpected it may well be your best pairing yet xx
