If you know me, you know that I love Isabel Marant. I can never choose a favorite designer but she is definitely in my top 3. She has a magical way of designing pieces that are stunningly elegant while maintaining a comfortable, cozy element. The Adil coat from her Fall 2014 was everything I love in a coat: longline, sweater-like and hooded (with pockets too!). I am definitely not in the place to drop $2,000 on a striped coat though, so I left it as one of those 'inspiration only' pieces.. forever lingering as an unrealistic tab on my laptop.
However this fall, fast-fashion superhero Forever 21 came to my rescue! They released this coat which is clearly 'inspired' (somewhat copied! haha) by the Adil coat for only $40, a price that seems a little more doable. I'm quite impressed with the quality of it too, the fabric is thick enough for the chilly Boston fall, and maybe a little into the winter with some serious layering.
I chose to pair the coat with some Zara moto jeans from last season (rips by me), my ps11 bag and some Mango sneakers. Sadly these exact items aren't available anymore but I've linked some awesome alternatives below! xxx Flo
