yay-or-nay-kenzo-coatA coat? In spring? That’s what you’re thinking, right? No, we’ve not completely lost our style marbles, but one look at the 50 shades of dull sky and you’ll get our drift.

As much as we’re dreaming of willowy blouses, thigh-grazing minis and the softest of pastel hues to take us into spring, we can’t resist good-looking outerwear for when the weather can’t make up its mind. Enter the colour-pop cover up from Kenzo (£356): a riot of colour and cosy, chill-proof chunky-knit against a salt and pepper backdrop. Yum.

But, a coat so crazy comes with reservations, so we’re taking a moment to weigh up this Kenzo beauty’s purchasing potential below…


Alternative cover-up: If you’re done with drab coats, let this colour daubed version take you through the final stretch of winter – stylishly, of course!

Great price: Given you’re bagging Kenzo for a pretty charming sum at our favourite online designer outlet, you’ll automatically land the bragging rights, much to the envy of all your friends.

Day-to-night coat: Thanks to its belted waist and sleeve detail, why not take on the coatdress trend with this Kenzo number? It’s perfect for after-work drinks in the chill.


Statement piece: As much as we love it for the look-at-me detail, it could also be the reason this buy ends up in the one-wear-then-despair pile.

No hood: Practicality isn’t completely lost on fashion, which is why we wish this coat had a hood for those frizz-inducing drizzly days. See ya, sleek hair!

Difficult to style: Brights are often difficult to pair with your wider wardrobe and, unless you’re addicted to bright colours and big detail, this coat could prove just that. Think hard before pulling the plastic out.

Kenzo belted wool-blend felt & chunky-knit coat, £356, available at The Outnet.
