Firstly, Ponte di Roma is what some might call double knitted jersey and ok, maybe it is a bit too much to say “All I want is a Ponte di Roma coat” as you know it’s never enough clothes! But of course there are several reasons that I love about Ponte di Roma coats:
For the strangely warm winter this year in London, a Ponte di Roma coat really comes in handy. You probably don’t want to perspire in a typical bulky winter coat. A coat like this is just enough for it.
It is casual enough to wear daily as the quality of the material makes the coat not too structural, easy to wear and even with a bit of creases won’t make you looking too sloppy.
Strangely, also because of the quality of the material, it is not way too soft and you can definitely dress it up for more formal locations.
Of course you can easily layer on top of any other kind of jackets or even another coat if the weather get colder.
I seriously just love this material and I can actually make an even longer list to tell you what I love about a Ponte di Roma coat. Here in this post, the outfit was for a “doing nothing” boxing day so obviously it was styled for a casual day and the coat I was wearing was from Shein. I have been wanting a coat like this this winter and as soon as I saw the colour, Wine Red, of this coat, I knew I wanted it! Red is a little bit out of my comfort zone if you follow me on my Instagram, you probably have noticed. But as it is at the darken side of red, it brightens up my not so exciting colours usual outfits and at the same time, not over the top. Also this colour really goes very well with the colour trend this season, ex. pink, metallic colours, warm taupe, khaki green, and almost all sort of floral embroidered colour combinations will goes beautifully with this wine red. Of course it is amazing with timeless black and 50 shades of grey.
A super casual look with a cap and slippers. And below photos are from exactly the same look but without the cap and with the bag showing.
Don’t you think with my a little bit formal kind of bag and my glasses on, straight away the coat turn into a more formal feel. Just imagine it with a pair of classic black pumps and pantalon instead, I think you can easily wear it Monday to Friday too.
Now without the coat and with this probably currently the most popular embroidered sweater. Unfortunately it is sold out everywhere and I really can’t find any similar one to share with you but I made a list of my ideal sweaters to go with the coat as a matchy but not so matchy set.
