This Blanket Stripe Chore coat is so versatile because of its cut and colors. Being from Minnesota, it will be a coat, worn as a sweater indoors or an additional layering piece and in use for ~8 months if needed. The colors make it easily wearable. It is finely finished in details of cut, colors, and finishings. It wasn't as 'soft' as I was expecting according to the description and the material content online differed from what was listed on the coat but no difference made in how much it will be worn.
