Hi everyone, so I have a wedding to attend this weekend and ended up ordering two possible coats to wear with the dress I’m wearing haha (it’s still chilly here in Australia so I’ll need to wear one). I have to return one so would love some advice on which looks better with the dress, as everyone is so helpful on here! I like both and will get lots of wear out of either after the wedding so I literally cannot decide which one to keep and it’s driving me crazy!
I’ll also be wearing either sheer black or nude stockings. My legs are also not as ghostly pale as the photos suggest, it’s the lighting haha.

Are those the shoes you are wearing?

I said burgundy because I think it looks better with your dress hanging lower. However, the pink one is more formal, so they both have their pros. I think either one is fine.
I do LOVE the pink coat though! Where did you get it?

I think the burgundy coat is a bit too matchy-matchy, the pink is a nice contrast.

laurenkate1 : the blush coat! The blue looks nicer with your dress and just objectively has more style. The burgundy coat is a yawn.

The blush one gives an interesting contrast, BUT the burgundy is more versatile, you’ll wear it with many other outfits, goes great with jeans and the dirt will not show up as much.

I think burgundy looks best with your dress out of the two. But I think a black would look better, provide nice contrast, and match your shoes.

laurenkate1 : I like the pink coat better but to be honest your shoes are way too clunky for both the jacket and your dress. They look like Irish dancing shoes and with that photo with your arms to the side with that shape dress I keep imagining you to kick up your legs and start dancing. 😜
I’d totally rethink the shoes to something more delicate to match your dress and jacket. It doesn’t all quite go together. It’s kind of mismatched but not even in a quirky cool way. I’d also do flesh toned stockings because the black will just add too much extra visually.
Sorry OP just trying to be honest. Fix the shoe choice and you’ll be golden. 😊

I agree those shoes have to go !
Sane Sane white panty hose no !
I would pick the pink coat just as an overall choice
Sorry to be so blunt but it looks like you didn’t plan your outfit 🙁

motherbee33 : I think she said she was going to go with black or nude hose. The white is her legs.
laurenkate1 : I agree with a previous poster, the maroon seems more versatile. I love winter coats, so I have way more than would ever be needed. So it would probably be best to ignore me when I say, why not keep both? Wear the pink coat to the wedding.

The burgundy, the black shoes look too severe with the pink coat (I know you won’t be wearing the coat the entire time but I don’t like the combo)
