The Beige Coat With Leather Sleeves From Zara

(Coat – Exact, Jumper – Exact, Jeans – Similar, Boots – Exact, Bag – Exact, Scarf – Exact)

I wore this outfit when I went out to lunch on Saturday with my boyfriend and we ate at Gourmet Burger Kitchen. I haven’t ever been there before, but it was quite nice! I decided to wear my new Zara coat for the first time and I love it, although it’s a little bulky in the shoulders. I saw it as coming soon on the site for ages and then on a Sunday morning it was in stock, so I snapped it up quickly and it went out of stock again, so I was really excited to finally have it.

I’m wearing my new Zara Beige Coat With Faux Leather Sleeves and Taupe/Camel Cable Knit Jumper/Sweater, my Levi’s Black Skinny Jeans, my ASOS Burgundy Quilted Bag, my Topshop Aubergine Cable Knit Pom Pom Scarf and my KG by Kurt Geiger Winona Booties.

I thought that pairing it with black and camel was a good idea to keep things neutral, but I added a bit of colour with the scarf and bag so it didn’t look too bland. It’s definitely a really nice coat and it’s very warm, I just need to get used to how it sits at the shoulders as I felt quite bulky with it, hopefully it will settle down soon though. Anyway, what do you think of the outfit?

And here are some photos of our food.

This was my burger above, nothing adventurous, just grilled chicken and salad.

This was my boyfriends, I think it was called Rodeo, but he always goes for crazy things ha ha.

And these are the skinny fries, I love them! Although I couldn’t eat all of my small portion.

    I confess: I’m a little bit “meh” on these type of coats, but I am really liking yours. I think it’s the different materials that I’m liking more than the traditional trench-coats with the leather sleeves. Totally like it.

        Hi, i am from mongolia. I have that coat which is from usa my sister bought for me recently. Size is M. But i wear size S. so that is too big for me. But i want to wear it. How to wear that nicely for me. My weight is 50kg, and height is 1.55. Please advise for me.
        Ps. My english is poor. If you dont understand please let me know. Thanks. Eni

          February 17, 2013 / 5:04 pm

          Hi! Is it much too big on you or only a little bit too big? It’s designed to be worn open and not zipped up, so don’t zip it up and put on lots of sweaters underneath it, hopefully that will help!

          • Eni
            February 18, 2013 / 3:47 am

            Hi Lorna, thank you for your advise. Shoulders are big for me. Again thanks.

              February 18, 2013 / 12:04 pm

              No problem! They are big on me too, they are designed that way.

    Great photos! I love this coat! Do you think it runs true to size? Trying to find one on EBay.

    • November 14, 2013 / 12:04 am

      I find it runs a little bigger, I took size S, but could have done with an XS.

      • Brenda
        November 14, 2013 / 2:08 am

        That helps a lot thank you! I was unsure between a small and xsmall. Plus I’m not that familiar with Zara sizing. I have been told they run small. But maybe this coat is an exception?

        • November 14, 2013 / 10:19 am

          They do run small in general, but I find their coats are always bigger. I’m size medium in their sweaters1 and dresses, size small in their blazers and jackets and then size extra small in coats. It’s all over the place lol!
