6 coats in the sales we want after seeing all the gorgeous inauguration style

The inauguration got us thinking about coats, so we dove through the last of the sales to find some steals.


I can’t remember the last time I wore an “occasion” coat. The type of coat that just ties an entire outfit together, that you put on like a piece of armour. My coat stipulation these days are waterproof with a hood and some poo bags in the pocket (for the dog!).

Then I saw Michelle Obama’s berry number at Thursday’s inauguration. She looked like a Black Forest dream in her all-Sergio Hudson outfit. Her outfit was only to be upstaged by Vice President Kamala Harris’ step-daughter Ella Emhoff is a drool-worthy Miu Miu bejewelled coat. 

While we’re not quick ready to give up the comfy pants and snug trainer yet, a coat that makes what you’re wearing today actually feel like an “outfit”, is no harm, is it?

My mother would complain that I’m buying a “winter coat on the way out of winter”, so I dug through the sales sections’ rather than the new season kit to uncover a few beauties.
