Coats are often thought about in the dead of winter, but surely everyone still needs a cover during the crisp spring evenings. Great Coats, a fashion exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art gives some great ideas on how to transition your wardrobe from season to season.
This lovely plaid coat is by Pauline Trigere. But what I really love about it is that it’s reversible! It’s always good to have multiple options.
My pick for an spring evening coat would be this yellow Bonnie Cashin. I’d pair it with jeans and moccasins. The muted plaid with leather embellishments and fringe makes me think of throwing a party around a bonfire.
Evening coats always complete a party look. Normally, Dior would be my pick. But after having seen The Artist, I’m in LOVE with this 1920s silk velvet evening coat. There are small beads that really catch the light and sparkle.
