I’ve been browsing outerwear as fall flurries into our fair city.
While my newest acquisition is this cute swingy, 60′s-esque coat by Voom, I can’t help but drool over Mackage’s prim-but-utilitarian, ultra-tailored, super-luxe coats. It’s neo-victorian meets urban dwellers and it somehow seems so right for the season – whether the look is ultra ladylike, or military-inspired.
Ladylike bell sleeves and the extra length in the back offset the oversized collar and pockets. The look is militant, but soft.
With a nipped in waist, cowl neck and large buttons, this coat has a futuristic ladies-in-menswear feel. I see oxfords and slim suit pants; silk and leather gloves.
This next coat is my favorite from the group…
Victorian puffed sleeves in a slim cut and a center yoke give this coat a vintage feel in a streamlined modern way. It says “high-street urban gamin” – ultra tailored, without being overly fussy.
And as fall rolls it’s way into winter, ladies will be wearing these in style. The looks are modern, but not overly forward – they are looks that will last!
