I initially thought that this coat would be more of a statement piece for me, only worn occasionally and with a simple base, but I’ve found myself drawn to this cozy floof of a coat time and again. I threw it over a jumble of contrasting textures the next time I wore it, with a patterned crinkly chiffon top, pebbled pants, and perforated creepers:
