Petite wrap coat for winter and fall


I can never complain when brands bring back old favorites! Read my review of this coat from last year, and see how I styled it with a dressier office look. That charcoal gray is an older color; I received this current “smoke grey heather” color (the one featured in today’s post) thanks to Ann Taylor. Fit is true to size – I’m under 5 feet measuring 32-24-32 at my bust-waist-hips, and my usual xxs petite fits with room to layer underneath.

This coat is straighter-cut throughout the torso, so the belt is important for creating some waist definition. The wool-blend material is lined and weighty, and of course I love that there’s pockets! I wear this during our Boston winters with a thick sweater and a thermal tee underneath. As of right now, this coat is still available in classic black in petite xxs and up … I’m sure small sizes will go quickly, though!

Measurements of xxs petite: 14″ across shoulders, 32″ length, 22.5″ long sleeves, 5.5″ across the middle of the sleeves.

    I absolutely love the wool coat, Jean! It looks so snug and nice – I can’t decide whether I prefer it in grey or camel, they both look so good!

    I hope you’ve had a great weekend,

    These coats look amazing on you! I remember last year, you wore your Burberry Daylesmoore coat on a few posts. Do you know if they plan to bring that particular style back? Haven’t seen it since last year. Also any tips on buying an authentic one through eBay? Thanks!!

    • Reply Jean | Extra Petite October 23, 2017 at 4:20 pm

      Unfortunately for us, I think Burberry is phasing out their “moderately” priced coats in favor of the ones priced closer to 2k : ( I haven’t seen the Daylesmoore coat back this year, and the closest option that is around the 1k price point is this one (another classic):

    I love the camel wrap coat so much, though the gray version looks just as gorgeous! <3 🙂 Definitely a wardrobe staple for the cooler months! Glad to hear that Boston was warm this weekend too!

    Hi Jean, do you have photos/video showing how you tied the belt of the coat?

    • Reply Jean | Extra Petite October 27, 2017 at 10:51 am

      Hi Elaine! I’ve only done it on Instagram stories video before but will try to take step by step photos to include in a future post.

    I’m loving both coats! Ann Taylor’s petite line really is the best!

  • Reply Stephanie October 24, 2017 at 12:48 am

    I love belted coats like these! However, I have no idea what to do with the belt sometimes. Could you please help with how to tie belted coats in the front and back? Or advise on how you’d style the belt when you don’t want to tie in front? Thank you Jean!

    • Reply Jean | Extra Petite October 27, 2017 at 10:53 am

      Hi Stephanie, when I want to leave the front open I always just do a loose half bow tied in the back! I usually do a bow like this in the front when the jacket is closed just so no long tail ends are hanging … will try to take photos of those steps soon.

    This wrap coat from Ann Taylor is such a better and affordable alternative to the one I have from Aritzia. Although it is a bit longer but the material is such high quality and it’s so soft. It’s worth keeping!

    Hi Jean. Sorry I’m commenting here with this question, but I couldn’t find another way to contact you- do you have recommendations for petite bust bralettes/bras?

    • Reply Jean | Extra Petite October 27, 2017 at 10:57 am

      Hi Jo! I buy most of my bras now from Nordstrom … they have some very extended sizes now in bands and cup sizes. You can also look up the little bra company, sold directly on their site or on shopbop!

    Stylish, Gorgeous and Cozy……I like the coat specially Grey color.

    This coat will look beautiful with dark color trouser.

    It doesnt look like XXS petite is an option and the grey XS Petitie is sold out. 🙁 My measurements are similar to yours, height as well, do you think the XXS regular would be too long?

    If I end up having to do the black, there us an XS petite, Too big?

    Thank you!
