Everyone on Instagram is wearing this £50 houndstooth coat

Everybody needs a simple winter coat that goes with everything, and luckily for all of us, New Look has answered our prayers with the perfect understated houndstooth number.

And unsurprisingly, we’re not the only ones loving this style; influencers and celebrities alike can’t get enough of the Black Fluffy Houndstooth Double Breasted Coat.

The cover-up in question comes in two shades: a black and a lighter grey. It combines an elegant look with a super cosy feel, which is something surely all wearers will appreciate in the current British weather. Plus, the coat has handy side pockets, a double breasted button fastening, and comes in a relaxed fit that sits just below the knee.

Like with most of New Look’s diverse clothing, the coat is available in sizes 4 to 20, and is currently still available in all of them (although it looks as though the size 8 is running a little low).  

The genius of this exact style is its versatility. Not only will this look great with a simple pair of jeans, roll neck and boots-style outfit, it’s also suitable for throwing over a cocktail dress or wearing to the office to look smart.

And as mentioned, we’re definitely not the only ones who are a big fan of this piece. For one, the piece is endorsed by Rochelle Humes, who is an ambassador for New Look. As one of her must haves for winter, you know it’s a good’un.

Next up is its presence on social media; the coat has been spotted everywhere. Bloggers such as Katie Penny, India Moon, and Olivia and Alice have been spotted rocking the style, amongst other Instagram stars.

But in our books, the best thing about this has to be the price. At £49.99, it’s amazing value considering just how versatile it is – your cost per wear will soon be tiny.
