It was a frigid and windy one this weekend! I wore this triple-layered pairing of many old favorites for running errands. We got in just a few snaps before Nick’s hands almost froze off – any good recommendations for photographer-friendly winter gloves? striped white jeans ray ban blue mirrored aviators winter outfit
I first tried on this Burberry Daylesmoore coat (also referred to as their funnel-neck wool cashmere trench) in size 2 in 2013, then did a more detailed review in a size 0 last winter. I finally purchased it this winter after not having found a camel coat I loved more after all this time. I wanted to answer more of your questions on this coat, and also show why I chose the size 2.

Having tried on three years’ versions of this coat, I feel like sizing has shifted to be a little slimmer over time. If you look at my 2013 post in a size 2, the coat was noticeably baggy, although I was wearing a lighter cardigan. This winter when I went coat shopping, I wore my faux leather moto jacket which I like to layer under winter coats on the coldest days. The weight was also a good representation of a thicker blazer or sweater. Please note all fitting room photos below are with this jacket on underneath!

Here is the size 0 – please excuse wrinkles as they had brought this right from storage:

Compared to sizing on American brands, I feel the Burberry Brit line runs at least one full size small. I’m typically a 00p / xxsp in American retailers, and the size US0 coat here was very fitted on me without my extra layer. I really loved the snug feeling, until I looked at the 360 deg. pictures. As you can see in the pics above, with the extra layer on there are noticeable signs of bulging on me both at the front buttons as well as the back torso vent. I did love the narrow fit in the shoulders of this size, though.

Here is the size US 2 in comparison:

The shoulders were not as fitted on me, but the entire coat was more comfortable throughout. After reviewing these photos it was clear to me which size to get. I had my usual alterations done of shortening the sleeves and raising the belt loops. The sleeves were not super long on me and the belt loops were only about .5 to 1 inch low, so those even a little taller than me (I’m 5 feet) may not need any alterations!

Coat try-on tips: definitely try on outerwear with an additional layer, representative of what you’d typically wear on a cold day. Also, have someone else take photos of you in the coat from the front, side, and back so that you can take a closer look from all angles! This lets me see fit issues, like pulling across the back, which I’d miss otherwise.camel coat stripes white jeans winter outfit
I haven’t found any super similar options for less, but here are two other camel coats that do come in extended petite sizing:
– ASOS long funnel-neck coat, starting in 00p (likely fits like 000p)! In my experience their sizing runs small (I usually wear 0 or 2P there) and their coats are on the lighter-weight side.
J.Crew zip Melton coat, starting in 00p in three neutral colors.

    Hi Jenny! I'm wearing just a very light coat of Smashbox cognac. It can get pretty brown with a heavier coat. I also like Bobbie Brown "brownie" lipcolor

    Tale as old as time: the petite and the tailor! This jacket looks great on you, but the real standout is your amazing ponytail! Hugs, Kait

    Is this the coat that you wear on the really cold nasty days, or do you have something warmer? Would love your suggestions on a down coat.

    Great tips for coat fitting! I will keep them in mind when the winter comes in Australia!

    Hi! I love your Coach Court bag and I am looking at purchasing one for myself. I'm leaning more towards this style compared to the Coach Pocket cross body because this one seems a little big bigger. Are you able to fit a normal sized wallet plus a few more items in the Coach Court bag? Do you ever find yourself wishing it was larger? I just want to make sure its a good size before purchasing one! Thanks! Love your blog by the way!

    I just ordered this coat and was wondering, is that back flap meant to lay flat on your back or have a little vented room? I've never really paid attention to others wearing this style on the street so I can't be sure..
