Hey all you winter fashionistas, need something to keep you warm that also has a touch of pizzaz? I sure did! And since I’m of the church going faction I really wanted a coat that would be long enough to cover my legs and add another layer of warmth when I’m wearing a dress.Apostolic Clothing happens to have dozens of floor length dresses, jackets and long coats perfect for sprucing up your winter wardrobe and they are adding new styles all the time! I love coming back to their site and seeing the fresh inventory just waiting to dazzle my closet (ha).
If you haven’t heard of Apostolic Clothing before you’re really missing out. They are an awesome store that specializes in modest modern & vintage style clothing (thinks trendy patterns, flattering cuts, and long stylish dresses and skirts).
Anyway, I was over the moon when Apostolic Clothing asked if I would like to review a winter item, following my review of their ballerina skirt a few months ago (you can read about that here). I choose the Adora, one of their long dress coats time.
This coat drops to just below my knees, and has a quilted/ruched type design that is elastic and pulled the coat around my curves, making the coat also resemble a dress. Actually if your look at the picture on Apostolic Clothing website they’ve accented the coat with a black belt making it look even more dress like (though the belt does not come with the coat).
It has a high popped up collar that rests just under your jaw and is great for wind protection along the sides and back of your neck though it doesn’t close in the front so if you’re going for warmth with your fashion you’ll want to pair it with a scarf.
It’s also a really light weight coat, (made from 100% polyester) I would say it could easily fall in the jacket category and is ideal for warmer winters days when you don’t want to haul around a heavy bulky coat, but you still want protection from wind. I’m quite tall (5’10”) and I found the sleeves were just a touch short for me, ending just above my wrist. I ordered a medium and if I were to do it again I would probably go up a size just for the sleeve length, but I suspect not many of you are going to experience the same height issues.
Finally this coat comes in tons of colors (blue, black, white, red, purple) and sizes S – 1XL. So if you’re looking for something to add some color to the bleakness of winter one of these colorful numbers might be just the thing.
Check out Apostolic Clothing for more great modest winter styles, perfect for Christmas and ideal for winter weather.
