Checked Blanket Coat - Next/Tall Long Sleeve Tube Dress - Next/Shoes - Joan & David/Watch - Forever 21/Clutch - H&M

I am obsessed with the tall coats from Next. They are entirely hot and haute. Not to mention they have extra length for us in both the body and arms (as any true tall garment should).

This particular hottie is the Checked Blanket Coat and she is a betty. I love the collar, oversized yet figure flattering cut and a matching belt to tie the whole look together. Now...it is pretty thin but it is really warm because it is wool. Lastly, I love the hemline of the coat. It adds a little flair without making the coat too fancy to wear with casual bottoms.

I paired the coat with the same dress that I wore in the Black Sand post. It's a slightly different look for the dress, further showing the versatility of the simple-chic piece that is also from Next Tall.

Another tall coat from another tall retailer that you should definitely know. What do you think...was this checked coat a checkmate?
