When I think “long coat”, Sandra Bullock in “While you were sleeping” comes to mind: a cute rom-com movie that made my teenage heart throb. The throbbing had more to do with the twisted and unexpected romance than with the coat, but it seems my unconscious has been at work.
This year, I’m wearing a very close replica. The below the knee cut is considered dangerous because not very flattering and because of the shortening effect, but I still wanted to try with heels (along with sheer socks and a thick “fluffly” sweater, rest assured).
I now understand why Sandra Bullock could concentrate on her romance with not as much as a second thought to the freezing Chicago cold: a long coat is like walking around wrapped in your comforter: bliss! (English translation by Bleu Marine)
