I am SO excited to be featuring Coast Apparel for today's post. I am one lucky girl because Coast sent me a big package of things that boys and girls should BOTH own (and how cute is that box?!)! Not only am I in love with every single thing they sent me, but I am also in love with their motto: "Where taking it easy is serious business".
Check out what they sent!
Their website says,
"Our clothing lines are designed to take you back to the coast: in your heart, in your mind and on your back. They are comfortable and elegant in their cut, style and feel. It is our desire that when you put on a piece of COAST apparel, it will ignite some of your fondest memories and place you in a coastal state of mind no matter where you are."
There is no doubt about it that the cut of their clothing is perfect. They are my new go-to company for polos, that's for sure. They sent me two of their Winyah polos (this was their first product!) and I can't say enough positive things about these shirts.
The cut of the polo is longer than other polos I have tried, but this is definitely a good thing. The sleeves are the perfect length and are definitely flattering. I find that a lot of other women's polos have longer sleeves and while I don't mind that, these sleeves are definitely a better option. I have several pictures with both polos. First I did a casual, "trendier" look pairing the polo with denim shorts. I really love this look and wore it to a sorority meeting. While at the meeting, a lot of people asked me what the crab logo was because they thought it was so cute.
Then, I paired the pink polo (cosmo pink) with a Lilly skirt and wore this outfit to class.The pink was a perfect match to that in the skirt. I find that my Ralph Lauren polos err on the shorter side and so when I try to tuck them into my bottoms, they easily become un-tucked. With the Winyah polo, there is plenty of length and stretch so it is great for tucking into bottoms.
For sizing I usually wear a small in most tops, but sometimes order a size up if I want a looser, more casual fit. For these polos, I got a small and they fit perfectly. I would say that they are true to size.
Next, they sent me the fleece vest in navy. I am in LOVE with this vest. This is so perfect for fall and winter weather. I got a medium in the vest and it definitely fits. I've got plenty of room for a heavy sweater to put underneath but when wearing a tighter shirt, the vest doesn't look to large at all. This is another true to size garment, but I would order up if you want to fit a chunky sweater underneath.
I haven't worn this out yet, because it is still too warm here, however, I'm sure in the next few weeks I will be reaching for this. I paired with a navy blue and white striped turtleneck and am loving this look. In the winter you could add a jacket over the vest for more warmth, but for fall, you could wear it as is and be warm! It has a zip pocket on the left chest and says Coast in small blue writing. I am loving the fact that they don't over-do with their logo. It's the perfect size. My favorite part is that their crab logo is stitched on the back of the collar! The quality is just right. The fleece is soft and there is plenty of pockets.The best part of this fleece vest is the price. It is $89.50 which is great because if you compare it to an outdoor company such as Patagonia or North Face, their fleece products are almost double the price of the Coast vest.
With the vest, I would wear the Coast Cap. Mine is pink! I am a big hat wearer while at school because sometimes when I don't have enough time to style my hair, I just put a hat on. Or I especially love it when I go to the gym and don't have time to shower before grabbing dinner, I just put a hat on and it makes me look a little more put together.
I love when guys wear white hats and at $20, this would make a great gift for a guy.
Last but not least they sent me a koozie! I might as well tell you all that I have a slight hoarding issue with koozies.. not really but I collect them, and I am so glad to have added this one to my collection!
