The Budget Coat

Everyone who wears clothes (and I hope that is everyone...) has a 'thing'. Be it shoes, bags, belts or briefs. For me, and many others, that thing is coats. So much so that it has become a bit of a running joke in my family that if I come through the door with a shopping bag - it's probably a coat.

Some of the best coats I've come across have honestly been from the supermarket clothing brands. My £25.00 cream trench coat from Florence and Fred gets more "WHERE did you get this?" comments than any other coat I've owned. So when I wandered into Asda to get some household essentials I, of course, browsed through the George clothing section.

I have been looking for a smart black oversized coat for ages. I have camel coats, beige coats, navy coats, even a purple coat - but I don't own a black coat. This coat caught my eye immediately. With a really nice cut and quality material I looked at the price tag and expected it to be £30.00 or £40.00. I was astounded when I saw £15.00 on the label - a complete bargain.

Here is the coat in action. It's oversized sizing means it's easy to wear and layer and it's smart cut means it smartens up any outfit. I can't find it online but they had tonnes of stock in store - they must have known it will be popular.

Have you made any bargain clothing purchases recently?
