With autumn rolling around, it’s time to start thinking about a new season wardrobe and in particular, new outerwear.
We’re sad that summer is over and as has become an annual tradition, we’re channeling that raw emotion into searching for a decent coat.
It’s one of the few good things about the weather getting sh*t and there are loads of lovely bits landing in shops right now that have caught our eye.
A coat that’s definitely grabbed our attention (but maybe not for the right reasons) is this one by PrettyLittleThing.
Yeah. That’s a high-vis jacket.
Now, we have to say from the outset that we here are big PrettyLittleThing fans.
The brand is always at the forefront of new trends and sells some seriously stylish pieces – but this ain’t one of them.
“Girl, get ready to get noticed in this seriously cool high vis coat,” the blurb on the website reads.
PLT recommends pairing the jacket with grey cycling shorts and reflective boots “to complete this eccentric look.”
Inexplicably, it’ll set you back €65 of real life money (or £45 in the UK) and even more inexplicably, it’s selling out.
The piece has gone viral this week and lots of folk are making the same joke about it.
