Did you hear? Eighties are back with their mutton sleeves trend. Great news, right? Mutton sleeves are actually much older than that. They started already at the beginning of the 19th century and since then they just keep coming back once in while, like any other good trend. Mutton sleeves are the ones that starts with an accumulation of a lot of fabric slightly below the shoulder and than get tight again at the wrist area. You can now see this trend popping up everywhere and Topshop even came up with an amazing winter coat. When I saw it first, I thought it looks rather enormous and just baggy. But when I tried this Topshop coat I could see how chic it was. There are many different blue coats, but this one with mutton sleeves is my favourite.
Topshop coat with mutton sleeves
I love the way it emphasise the hourglass figure, even if you don’t have one. it looks great open as well, but I really like to make the belt quite tight. It has a great length, just below knees. That makes it a great coat for dresses and knee length skirts. My favourite look is to wear it with a turtleneck sweater underneath, ideally white or off white like this one or this one. The white makes the coat stand out a bit more. Simple blue jeans and Sergio Rossi boots makes the whole look very effortless and chic. The winter headband is just cherry on the cake, however I can imagine you might like to choose to wear it with one of those big winter scarfs, like this one.
When it comes to coats, I always follow my rule to always go for good quality over a trend. Last year it was all about classics with a beige coat. This year it is Topshop coat which combines both the trend with the quality. In the end of the day, if you choose well, you have a beautiful coat that lasts for at least few years.
