Empire Style

Coats/ Dresses/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

The Empire style dresses and coats, sometimes refered to as Babydoll, describes a style in which the dress has a fitted bodice ending just below the bust, giving a high-waisted appearance, and a gathered skirt which is long and loosely fitting but skimming the body.

My beige Empire Style trenchcoat is from Stefanel SS 2012 and has the classic characteristics of the Empire coat: Pockets at the front and ruffled at the back.

Team the coat with ballet shoes or boots like Jessica Alba below to tone down the girly look of her Isabel Marant denim empire dress.


Sienna Miller paired her girly Empire dress with flat sandals and a cropped jacket.
