I love me a good classic watch. I wear one every day and always get compliments. This black-face one is a new level of fabulous.
A lot of coats, like the one I’m wearing here, one don’t have much shape to them. Unless they are worn belted, they look boxy and unflattering. Which, when reading reviews on belted coats like this one, seems to be the biggest complaint.
The easiest way to solve this problem is by tying the belt in the back, as seen in the picture below. It instantly adds shape, looks a lot more flattering and polished. Problem solved.
I do this with all my belted coats, including my trench coats.
I found the sleeves to be just a tad long but it didn’t bother me. The coat runs slightly big…but again, when tied in the back it instantly adds flattering shape.
