One things is certain when it comes to this seasons trends, it’s all about monotone or monochromatic color palettes and the fine detailing in pieces. Just so we’re all clear, “a monotone or monochromatic color palette is one that is made up of different tints or shades of a single color.” So in this instance it would be a play on the color purple.
Coat dresses are one of the pieces which I categorize as minimalistic and timeless. They require little outfit co-ordination to “get it right” and still keep you cozy and comfortable all day. One glimpse at this coat dress and you can appreciate the simplicity in the tailoring as well as the carefully crafted detailing of the buttons on the sleeves.
Looking into the framework, you can see how it accentuates the lovely silhouette of the female body, giving off an hourglass shape, while still keeping things somewhat bold and sophisticated with the double button up detail, as well as the button detail on the sleeves.
“The basic coatdress was a wardrobe staple for most decades, but became particularly popular in the 1960s. In the 1980s and 1990s, Diana, Princess of Wales, was a particularly high-profile wearer of coatdresses, many designed by Catherine Walker”
How I wore it:
I wore the purple coat dress fully buttoned up with a pair of burgundy pointy sock boots and a matching burgundy hat. This look works for absolutely any occasion this winter. From lunch dates with the girls, to a business meeting at the office. It is winter, but that doesn’t mean lose the glam, right!? A pair of statement earrings seal the deal and add an extra hint of detail and piece the outfit perfectly together. You can also dress this look down by undoing the buttons and wearing a basic-T, denims and a pair of sneakers for a chic casual look.
The Faux fur shawl is your BFF this season. It completely transforms even your most basic look and adds a touch of glamour to your outfit. Practical for the winter chills, and the ultimate statement maker. All the drama darlings, why not?
