Relaxed tailoring– it’s something I can’t seem to get enough of at the moment. A pair of floor-skimming trousers? Count me in. A long, sweeping duster coat? It’s in the bag. There’s something about the flowing, sensual silhouettes, based on stricter notes of tailoring that combines the best parts of a fragile femininity with power and dominance. What’s not to love? Of course I want to feel like a sexy goddess powerful woman, channelling both the grace and command of Beyonce simultaneously, but with Kim Kardashian’s stylist (AKA Kanye.)
This particular trench coat was from H&M’s 2015 conscious collection. Yes, the one seen on Solange. That went out of stock immediately. That I might have spent £30 extra to get it off eBay. But just look at those pictures… It was worth every penny. From the vamped up side splits that catch the wind and flash some flesh (okay, sometimes too much flesh), it delivers the perfect amount of laid-back sex appeal.
