Well the Christmas markets are in full festive flow here in Zurich. There’s gluhwein on every corner and not surprising it’s pretty cold in Switzerland. If you’re planning a visit bring ALL the layers. Short of taping a hot water bottle to myself I’m doubling up on layers. I’m working to a two coat minimum at the minute, though that quota may increase…

Speaking of coats, I’ve been keeping my eye on the oversized check coat this season. I’ve seen quite a few versions doing the rounds on social media. You might recognise this one I’m wearing from H&M. There’s a similar one from Mango (here) which is just as stunning.

THE VERDICT

I have to say I’m loving the loose fit of this H&M coat. The androgynous style is THE silhouette of the moment and I think it’s incredibly flattering especially when you wear a slimmer look underneath the coat. You could add a belt for even more feminine vibes. What cemented my love for this coat was the black, white and tan check. A plaid coat is the perfect way to add texture if like me, you’re not into patterns.

THE LOOK

I wore my oversized check coat this weekend for Christmas shopping and lunch with friends (I am soooo unprepared for Christmas this year). The cold weather makes me instinctively reach for dark colours so the coat broke up the all-black look nicely. Size wise, I’m wearing my usual size (UK size 8) and find that it’s loose enough to fit over chunky sweaters and in this case a turtle neck jumper and leather jacket.

What do you think of this look?
