Houndstooth

Props (is this still the word kids use these days?) to Banana Republic who designed this long double-breasted houndstooth wool coat in petite sizes. It is such a rarity, even with brands now venturing out to be more accommodating to those of us who don’t fit into “regular” sizing (i.e., tall, plus, petite).

Banana Republic Houndstooth Coat (extra 60%!) (Houndstooth) / Babaton Turtleneck sweater (old) / J.Crew French Girl Crop Trousers in 365 Crepe (Black, similar) / Marc Fisher Ulani Pointy Toe Boots / 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel (Black)

The coat runs pretty TTS. I am usually a XSP, and fits just right. A thick, chunky sweater like I’m wearing here makes it a bit snug, but going up a size would have definitely thrown off the proportions. It is also definitely a “car coat” weight, i.e., light and designed to worn over other layers. It’s a classic pattern and with an extra 60% off it’s sale price, plus another 10% off with a GAP or BR card, you can snag this for under $100 (keep in mind, however, it is a final sale item!).
