Over the past few years, my outerwear collection has doubled in size, perhaps even tripled. As I've worked to nail down my style, I've experienced just how transformative the right coat can be; how the perfect outer layer can take your look from good to great — and how you don't necessarily have to shell out big bucks to find a really nice one. Case in point: while recently perusing Old Navy's new arrivals for November, I came across the brand's Long Slouchy Double-Breasted Coat ($95). I loved everything about it from first glance: the neutral colorway, the double-breasted design, and its easy-breezy relaxed fit. Ahead, I dive into everything I love about it and what you need to know before adding it to your cart.
What I Like About This Coat
I love this coat so much that it's the only piece of outerwear I brought with me on a recent trip to New York — and I have no regrets. This is coming from a girl that usually packs at least two or three options to ensure my coat matches my outfit. As someone whose wardrobe mainly consists of elevated basics these days, this coat complements that aesthetic so beautifully. The quality is right on par with the design, from the chic and sophisticated herringbone design to the thick polyester-blend fabric that'll easily keep me warm this fall in Minnesota. And that's saying something.
What's Worth Noting About This Coat
Unsurprisingly, this coat has mostly five-star ratings, so I don't have many — er, any — notes that may keep you from adding it to your virtual shopping cart. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that it has an oversize fit, implied by its name, which features the word "slouchy." If you prefer a fitted silhouette, this coat might not be your cup of tea as it certainly boasts a loose fit, though I definitely don't think you'll be disappointed if you're itching to give a relaxed style a try.
Who This Coat Is Best For
This coat is best for those looking for an oversize silhouette that layers well over chunky sweaters and layers. I think it's a must have for those looking for an option that'll elevate everything in their wardrobe, while keeping you warm and cozy all the while.
