Best Value Winter Coat 2011

Now, from the title you might think, “what gives Chyaz the authority to comment on the best winter coat of 2011?” Well, I shall tell you! Never before have I tried on SO many winter coats in SO many shops. I literally feel that I have tried on every coat known to man, and the one I eventually picked was by far the best value! It was from Primark and cost £25.

It is a gorgeous dark navy colour, has navy and gold buttons and gorgeous detail on the lapels. I actually featured it in my latest Outfit of the Day video, which you can view here:

And a close up of that lovely ruffling near the lapels:

So, why do I think the value is so great? I like to match the look, feel and quality of the item with the price and see which comes out best overall. I was willing to spend up to £100 on a winter coat – it gets extremely cold up here in Leeds and I feel the cold at the best of times!

I loved that this coat felt heavy but not stuffy; although it is from bargain brand Primark, the quality feels fantastic and long-lasting. The £25 price tag (although quite expensive for Primark) is wonderful, especially around this time of year.

I just love the classy feel of this coat. And the fact that I get to break a fashion rule each time I wear it (navy and black not being seen together…how outdated!).

What do you think of this coat? I’d love to know!

Stay Creative,

    Hello Chyaz.

    I should say Primark is my favorite store for “quick and good” stuff.
    What I mean is that I always found many things very nice for a very low price, clothes, but also hair accessories and fancy jewelry. When I am looking for something in particular, I always start to check at Primark before everywhere else.
    Like you, I also have found my “very coldy” winter mantle. If you like to watch videos, whatever if it is in english or not (because my vids are in french), so, here it is :

    I am so pleased to read your reviews or watch your videos, I really like them alot! 😉

    Nice Winter Coat 😀

    Speaking of Winter Coats, I really love the Winter Coat that Avril wore at the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade today, it’s from Betsey Johnson, too bad it’s so pricy 😛
