Hello again, friends! I’m back after a short little Christmas break. Stuffed to the brim with excessive amounts of candy and Christmas cheer, I’m so excited to be back with y’all here on Lonestar Southern! With a show-stopper coat from Chicwish I’ve been dying to share with y’all. Hello, beautiful!
The cut is what kills me. Such a classic, standout look! I’ve found that 3/4 length sleeves are universally flattering, and pair that with the structured neckline? Timeless, Jackie O elegance right here. As if that weren’t enough, the color is breathtaking! The perfect way to break up the oftentimes mundane hues of winter.

I wore this exact outfit (you may remember this dress from last Christmas) to a friend’s wedding a couple weeks ago, and received compliments on this coat all night. I love that you can belt it shut or wear it open – both ways create their own, glam look!
The older I get (and I realize I’m not speaking with much authority, but stick with me…) the more I realize that classic, striking pieces are the ones that build the foundation of personal style. A timeless red coat is something in past years I would have never thought to go out and buy, but has now become a closet favorite of mine. From New Years Eve to Valentines Day and even through the chilly first months of spring, I look forward to bringing out this beaut!
For size reference, I’m in an XS. And heads up, it’s currently on sale and under $100!
Love from Texas,
P.S. Y’all, Chicwish has got a thing for gorgeous outerwear. Do you remember this burgundy trench from this post last month? Still a favortie!
Thank you, Chicwish, for sponsoring this post!
