Is it a coat or a dress?

As I was cleaning out my coat closet, I came across a gorgeous, floral print, WD* NY coat that I actually forgot I owned.  I remember wearing it once or twice and loving it!  Throughout the years, as I purchased more outerwear, this coat simply ended up in the back of my closet and “out of sight – out of mind”.  The functionality of this coat is pretty much a statement whether wearing it as a dress, belting it or wearing it as a coat for warmth.  You tend to get more mileage out of your outerwear when you have more than one option of wearing it.  Of course, as we all know, outerwear in New England really needs to make a fashion statement in style and in spirit. The practicality of wearing it as a coat or wearing it as a dress can be classic, season after season, year after year.


Jennifer Lawrence actress in The Hunger Games and Catching Fire wore a beautiful Christian Dior embroidered coat dress and sure enough pranced it as a dress!  Kate Middleton has been addicted to her flawless look of coat dresses.


The greatness memory of a coat dress is Jacqueline Kennedy wearing a white coat dress with black buttons belted with a black, thick belt. Coat dresses never go out of style. Button it up, belt it and wear it as a dress or style it as a coat, layering it over your outfit.
