A Tale of Two Coats

Colonel Mustard








So the story is that I am on the hunt for a new winter coat. I have a lovely long houndstooth print coat from Soïa and Kyo that I absolutely love, but it is a little dressy for every day. So when I stumbled upon these two coats by BB Dakota I was smitten. I love bright colours, especially in long Canadian winters when the weather is so cold, drab and grey.  Happily for me, both of these colourful coats fall into the price range I was hoping for - but not so happily, I can't decide which one I like best!







Finding Emeralds









Mustard yellow and emerald green are consistently two of my favourite colours to wear at any time of year but particularly when the frosty winds of winter are blowing.  I like the simple, military-esque feeling of the style of the gold coat, but the easy simple style of the green coat makes me feel like it would go with a lot... but I can't justify getting both, at least not at the moment.

Help me decide! Green or Gold? Would love to hear your thoughts!

I love the gold coat! It would look so great on you and be such a nice pop of colour over the dreary winter months!

As much as I love the gold/yellow, I'd go with the green, due to its shape. It looks like it would be much easier to layer, espacially for those cold winter days coming our way.
But both are pretty!

Definitely gold! It will look amazing on you!

It's hard to say, they are both pretty- I feel emerald is more classic and may stay within your wardrobe longer, but the gold coat is very pretty and has a higher neckline which is likely to keep you warmer during the coldest days! :)

There's a yellow coat like the one in your post on sale on ModCloth!

Both are great, but I think I'd go with the green. I like the shape, although the buttons are pretty low so you'd have to make sure to wear a good scarf if it was really cold out.

i vote green! I love the shape - and as much as i love mustard i think the colour will pair better with other pieces (while still not being something boring like black!)

Green - that deep vee will be elegant and flattering on most body types.

Military style jackets, particularly with the parallel buttons and rounded collar, will make most ladies appear boxy.

If you're built like a waif though, the gold is lovely.

I'm partial to green, plus I think the cut of it is more suited to daytime. I like the gold one too but to me it's more of a coat dress, and I agree with the above comments it'd be harder to layer. Let us know if you do get one of them!
