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.
