Seoul does street style so well — the girls of this super stylish city never fail to blow me away. While I was drooling over browsing Vogue’s street style photos from Seoul Fashion week, there was one trend I literally couldn’t stop seeing: the gray check coat, particularly the long variety.
I love how this classic coat seamlessly blends together masculine and feminine features. It’s one of those unforgettable boy-meets-girl kind of pieces you might imagine your cooler-than-thou French friend breezing out the door in on a brisk morning.
Unless gray check happens to be the national print of Korea, which I’m seriously doubting, it’s safe to say this coat is trending hard. These girls both made this trend their own, showing off the versatility of the piece. Or maybe — just maybe — it’s one of those elusive items that makes you look amazing no matter what you pair with it?
When you’re lucky enough to find one, isn’t life just so much easier?
If you, like me, currently feel that you absolutely need this coat to get you through the cold winter days ahead, your fashion BFF Zara has you covered yet again.
