Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” – Coco Chanel. When I’m shopping and I see myself reaching for all those florals, ruffles and puffs,  I remind myself of the 50/50 rule by Parisian style icon Ines de la Fressange: Buy 50 % basics and 50 % trendy or unique pieces.

My navy, faberge figured, egg shaped spring coat is one of those work horses and basic go-to-pieces I find myself coming back to  when I need something uncomplicated to throw on over jeans or dresses. The three quarter length sleeves and stand up collar are feminine, timeless and desirable features in any spring / summer coat.

Egg-shaped, voluminous coats have been all over the catwalks FW2013 of Celina and Giambista Valli to name just a few. And this shape is not just a fleeting trend but a timeless and playful coat shape.

Voluminous coats are easy to wear, just remember to pair them with something skinny underneath. Fitted jeans, pencil skirts or mini skirts all work well.
