In this weeks edition of Take 5’s magazine the centre page had been dedicated to The Top 20 High Street Buys and Chic Bargains and this mustard bow neck coat is number one. With its high neck and oversized bow it really gives it that chic 1940’s look.
It is a felt jacket with ballooned sleeves and is a loose fit. It is made from wool, nylon and cashmere and the colour is described as olive. Inspired by the 40’s era it’s not something I would hit the high street for, but it certainly would inject a bit of colour into everyone’s wardrobe. Available from French Connection and costs £140. I personally think it is horrible, I’m not sure if it is just the colour that puts me off but I wont be purchasing one. Maybe it’s a bit like marmite, if you like it you can get one online here.
