Since writing about wearing a cosy jumper with shorts (also known as the most impractical combination of clothing ever), I’ve been drawn to other pieces that look great but don’t really perform their basic duties of keeping me warm and protecting me from the elements.
Enter the sleeveless coat.
I’ve been wearing this ‘coat’ so much, despite its total lack of practical features. It basically serves as a fancy throw-over, and I’m fine with that.
Worn over jeans and a jumper, I suspect it could be called the ‘perfect transitional piece’ for those of us who speak wanky fashion language. It is great for this time of year, when it’s not quite cold enough for a proper winter coat even though we’re all thoroughly sick of our summer wardrobes.
