Best of Fashion Week: Fabulous Coats Edition

I, like my mother, have a thing for coats. I put so many coats into my “BEST” folder, where I’d been keeping links to every single thing I loved this week, that I decided they deserved a category of their own.

#5: Fall in London

Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2010

Simple but chic, feminine, and classic. This is what I imagine basically every wealthy London woman wearing around town, minus the hat.

#4: A Twist on a Preppy Classic

Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2010

I. Want. A. Sleeveless. Trench. What an absolutely fabulous concept.

#3: The Tahari Suit


Tahari is famous (in my family, anyway) for making incredible well-tailored and truly magnificent suits. But with the fur shawl and the belt, this becomes more of a coat than a suit jacket, as far as I’m concerned. But I could just sit and drool over this photo for hours.

#2: Casual in Eggplant


I generally prefer much more tailored, streamlined coats than this, but the casual slouch to this makes it that much more beautiful. And I also generally disapprove of belts outside of beltloops, but how can you not love that deep brownish burgundy belt with the sparkly buckle?

#1: A Vision in White


The collar, the belt, the cut, and the design on the right side – it’s all beautiful, modern, and unique. I’d also kill for those leopard-print stockings, but that’s irrelevant. Kudos to Vivienne Tam for knocking it out of the park, and winning out over quite a few much more high-profile designers (at least, according to this Diva).
