Date Night Look with Cotton Traders

 Is This Mutton's recipe for a spring date night outfit: smart white trousers, light wool-look coat and killer accessories

Dear friends. As Easter approaches, and spring gets into its stride, I've created a good outfit for date night or for any of the seasonal festivities.

In my latest collaboration with Cotton Traders, I've found the perfect lightweight coat for spring and autumn, and a top quality pair of ivory trousers (pants) for all year round. 

I'm wearing the wool-look Unlined Coat in Pale Rose (also available in soft sage). It comes in sizes 8 - 24, although sizes 24 and 20 in the pink are currently sold out.  It's true to size, and it definitely looks like wool. It feels really soft. 

My trousers are Cotton Traders' Textured Jersey Trousers in ivory. They're also available in navy. They're in two lengths, 27 and 29 ins.  I'm wearing size 10, 29 ins  (I'm 5'4). They need a heel at this length, but I prefer trousers to puddle over shoes, rather than have ankle or shoe showing too much. I would recommend sizing down. The 10 was a little large on me around the waist. Unfortunately they don't come in a size below 10.

Both pieces are very good quality. I like to have several coats in different colours and I keep them for years. 

The trousers are very versatile, being white.  They're an on-trend wider cut, and I can see myself coming back to them time and time again.

My husband prefers this kind of outfit for a date night to a dress or leather trousers. Like a lot of men he likes a natural look and this outfit is chic and clean, perfect for a restaurant or theatre.  The pink boots, top (Kettlewell) and necklace give it visual appeal. My bag, in stone, is from Pom Pom London. 

Spring as we're finding can be very cold for the first few weeks. An unlined coat is exactly the right weight for this type of weather.
