Ugh, I spot so many good coats recently.
Ages ago I owned a white wool coat, I believe from Topshop. It was a very structured minimal design, with a zipper, and I looked ever so smart in it. I really loved that coat. The downside was of course that it was white and even the slightest of stains or marks stood out on it like a sore thumb. And unless you have a huge dry cleaner budget that alone makes a coat like that very impractical.
Every winter I find myself contemplating buying a puffer jacket. And I always end up not doing so: either the warm winter simply does not call for one or I talk myself out of it based on the fact I find them very unflattering.
