COVET: Carven Two Tone Coat

This sharp two tone, navy and black, wool Carven coat ($865) has been stalking me since I came across it at Farfetch.com. I then spied two women wearing it at an event last week and fell in love with the jacket. I love the structured tailored fit that accentuates the waistline, the round neck and the curved hem and tonal stitching that gives the illusion of a peplum hem. This striking and ultra-versatile coat can lend a dazzling lift to everything from casual to after-dark ensembles. Carven’s timeless feminine take on the classic military-inspired winter coat will inspire you to reach for it time and time again, if you are willing to fork over the dough. If you think about the amount of wear you’ll get out of this coat over the years, the price is a true fashion investment that will most likely outlast many of the fast fashion outerwear sitting in your closet.

Here are two covetable looks I’ve created around this gorgeous coat:

Christopher Kane Red Leather Trim Leopard Kilt, $1800, 3.1 Phillip Lim 2-IN-1 Transparent 31 Minute Clutch, $575, Christian Louboutin Troop Boots, $1595,  Carven Two Tone Coat, $865

Zara Skinny Trousers, $59.90, Comme Des Garcons Tartan Clutch Wallet, $100, Madewell The Aberdeen Oxford, $198, Carven Two Tone Coat, $865
