Since about three years now I’ve been having a real coat obsession. On every flea market I buy at least two to three coats and working on the Trend department at H&M isn’t helping me get rid of my addiction either. Right now I think I have collected about thirty coats and they just keep on coming…
I’ve been thinking about starting my own coat collection, which would be a combination of real vintage treasures and own designs. To start off this project, I was looking for some street style inspiration and the images I found are truly magnificent.
In the last few years I think coats have become a more and more important fashion item and has really become part of an outfit or maybe even the eyecatcher of an outfit, which is exactly the reason why I started collecting coats in the first place. I used to have the problem that my really cute outfit was downgraded by my coat, but now that I have enough variety, there is always a coat that matches my outfit.
Soon there will be some posts with outfits of me online again, so you will get to see some of my coats and how they are really part of an outfit! For now I leave you with this beautiful inspiration. Hope you enjoy!
