As much as I love my statement winter coats, I’m glad I have my classic black coat to fall back on, especially when I’m wearing striking dresses and accessories.
In my opinion, every girl should own an empire line coat, which is a high waisted coat, emphasized by a horizontal seam. The reasons why are simple:
- The high waist creates the illusion of endlessly long supermodel legs
- The girly shape of the coat takes years off your age
- The A shaped coat looks great both with dresses / skirts and trousers
Pair a black, classic coat with sexy animal print accessories that pop and stand out! Subtle, understated coats and dresses just scream for an injection of glamour with a sexy snakeskin bag. After all, 2013 is the Chinese year of the snake.
I am wearing: High waisted black coat from Max & Co, ankle boots from Goertz, scallop mock collar from COS and tights from Falke. Make sure the faux python print is made of good quality like my leather bag from Alberta Ferretti or you’ll look like Kim Kardashian!
