I don’t know if anyone fangirls as much as I do about the Outlander series. Actually I’m sure there’s thousands of people who have read all of the books and have at least fangirled in person at a convention or something… so I ain’t special BUT, I am a huge fan of the Outlander series and they just came out with their second line exclusive to Torrid!
I was sent some really amazing pieces from the line but unfortunately some of the samples were a bit small including the jacket I’m about to show you (Waaaaaah) but I absolutely needed you all to see this because I am in love with it.
LOOK AT THIS. To those of you who don’t know, Outlander (spoiler alert) takes place in two different times. It starts off with the main character, Claire, living her life in post World War II with her husband Frank on their second honeymoon to Inverness. She then goes back in time to 1743 not knowing if she’ll ever go back to present day and that’s when the story takes off.
This outfit is obviously inspired by the 1940s but the coat is, in my opinion, TIMELESS. The quality of this line, just like last year’s, is freakin amazing. I think a lot of pop culture inspired collections can come off as “fancy dress” as the British say, but I find about 95% of the line wearable (I was looking forward to the red dress coming out but the fabric makes it come off as costume-y and sadly I’m not in love with the way I look in it but I have pictures and will post them eventually because it is still a really is a cute dress!).
The navy coat is my favorite part of the whole collection. I have spoken about this on my Instagram already but I think it’s important that I’ve always wanted to have coats that don’t make me look like a box. Not everyone has curves in all the “right” places, and though I don’t think this word is a great word to use anymore to describe clothes on anyone’s bodies, but it really is flattering in the sense that it gives my body some shape! It flares out at the waist and there aren’t many things that make me want to twirl around in front of a mirror and just stare, but this is definitely one of the few that does!
I do need to say though, I think this tartan dress was meant to be worn with this coat. I can’t really see it with anything else and I really don’t want to. I love this outfit as it is and it should never change.
Are you guys watching Outlander?! Are you all caught up on Season 3?! Did any of you manage to get some of the pieces before they sold out?! If so send me pictures on my Twitter or tag me on Instagram because I would LOVE to see you in this collection!
Here’s one more picture for the road. I like how it makes my backside look.
