Next Girls Winter Coat - Cute & Cosy!


The Princess wore a 'Grey Frill Wool Rich Coat' from Next, over her dress for The Pickle's Christening.

The coat complemented The Princess' dress really well and kept her warm and cosy on the walk to church and back.  It was generally a pleasant, sunny day but it did get quite cold in the wind.

I opted for the 5-6 years size (The Princess is 6 but quite petite).  The coat is quite generous and will definitely last all through the Winter and probably Spring too!  It has 2 pockets on the front, ideal for keeping mittens in or collecting leaves which is my daughter’s main use for pockets at the moment (I usually discover these after they’ve been through the wash!)

I love the frill detail on the collar and cuffs and the chunky buttons.  The coat is ideal for the Winter party season, but would also look lovely dressed down with jeans.

It’s made of 60% wool so is quite heavy but not uncomfortable to wear.  It’s also fully lined in a dusky pink polyester satin fabric, so is easy to slip over a party dress and won’t catch on any beads or delicate fabrics.

Here is The Princess’ verdict: 
“It is grown up, soft and has smart buttons”.
