Dear stylish friends,
I have a lovely waxed cotton jacket, a duffel coat style (see picture), almost never worn, and I do not know how to style it in a fresh way, suitable for my dramatic rather dressy style. Maybe it is a totally wrong item for me?
My sister and I found this jacket on deep discount for about five years ago. It is from Gloverall. I thought it was a great idea then. Classic, cute, great quality, perfect for my climate - simply something that “everybody” should have in their closets. And my DH is very fond of that style and himself wears Barbour jackets and such all the time. So I bought it and was happy. Until I realized that it is quite outside my style. And I cannot style it. You know me by now dressy, dramatic, polished and struggling with casual or sporty looks.
So, what to do? I really like the jacket as such, still think it is a great timeless classic item, but do not wear it. I do not want to give up on it quite yet…

Do you wear wax coats? If so, how do you style them? And do you have any idea how to style mine in a modern and less traditional way -perhaps a bit dressy and softer, more “feminine”? Is it even possible? Or any other ideas how to handle it?
