Style Glossary: Dressmaker Coats

PinterestTwitterEmailFacebooktumblr

This week’s Style Glossary post goes out to our ModLovers in the southern hemisphere (and anyone else who is still enjoying crisp, cool nights)! A dressmaker coat is a relatively general term, but my closet is full of whimsical examples nonetheless. By definition, a dressmaker coat is is a woman’s coat designed with softer lines and “special” details not often found in standard outerwear; thus, it’s styled more like a dress. Our Carmen Trench features a beautiful bow at the back, full “skirt”, and 3/4 length sleeves, making it quite a bit more special than your average trench.

What do you look for in your perfect cool weather attire? Let me know! Thanks for reading, and happy shopping!
