Review of Old Navy chest strap long coat

Investing in coats and coats is never a bad idea, especially if you’re looking to grow your collection beyond the essentials. I love collecting quality coats and coats that I can instantly pair with anything in my wardrobe and give my outfits that much needed extra boost. As I was browsing through Old Navy’s collection of cute and affordable options, I came across Long coat with two belts ($90), immediately caught my attention. I chose the navy blue in size XS because I don’t have anything like it. Overcoats are a wardrobe essential, especially if you want something that can accentuate your outfit and since the Side-Bracelet Jacket has arrived, I couldn’t wear anything else.

What I like about Old Navy’s lace-up jacket

For starters, this long coat has a lightweight yet insulated feel; it’s like wearing a blazer, but this keeps you warm yet cool. It has a comfortable soft texture that is stretchy and flexible, unlike other trench coats on the market that are structured and feel stiff. I love that this is a lighter jacket that allows for layering chunky sweater, bodysuits, and tanks alike. This down jacket is definitely a versatile piece that you can easily pair with more chic pieces and casual pieces.

Despite the casual feel, the trench coat features a tailored fit with knurled collars and lapels, adjustable button-down cuffs, and a tie-down waist. The double-breasted coat has two functional buttons on the outside and a drawstring, which you can leave it open to wear fresh and cool or close and bundle it up for a neater and better look. It has two extra buttons on the inside of the jacket, providing a secure fit, which comes in handy when I’m wearing a scarf or the wind is a bit too strong. Best of all, the jacket has pockets deep enough to fit my wallet, keys, phone, lip gloss or lip balm, and my AirPods.

The remarkable thing about Old Navy’s double-breasted jacket

This long coat is great for layers and keeps me warm, however, it’s not ideal for winter storms or temperatures of 40°F or below. If you’re wearing this in colder temperatures, wear appropriate clothing sweater or sweater, or wear a long-sleeved shirt or skirt with tight pants underneath. This jacket isn’t water-resistant either, but it can handle a rainy day with a proper umbrella and rain boots. If you’re looking for something that can withstand heavier showers, Old Navy has a waterproof outerwear that’s also an editor’s favorite; read Review of Trench Tie-Belt Waterproof Jacket here.

The waistcoat is pretty long and for a 5’1″ tall, it’s mid-shin just below my knees. If you’re looking for something shorter on the market, there are many other jackets and coats from Old Navy that I’m keeping an eye on. It has a comfortable fit, so order the correct size. You can use a belt to give it a more fitted, tailored look.

Who’s the best fit for an Old Navy belted jacket?

The blazer with belts on the chest is perfect for anyone looking for a quality down jacket that is a wardrobe essential. It complements both dresses and more chic outfits and elevates casual looks, from sweaters and boots to t-shirts and jeans. Plus, you can wear it year-round if needed. It’s light but warm enough to top it off when the temperature rises quickly, whether it’s spring or fall.

Is the Old Navy double-breasted jacket worth the splurge?

A quality overcoat that will last a long time and, of course, not compromise on style is hard to find and can cost a pretty penny. The Old Navy’s double-breasted belted jacket is a truly timeless piece and costs less than $100. It looks designer, comfortable, and luxurious, but for a fraction of the price.
