I feel like I’ve had one of those rare fashion wins. My old coat is back in style! To be fair, it’s a pretty classic color and shape, so it never really went out, but it’s more current now than in the intervening years. I bought it in London, 2008. We were living there for almost six months, and my Californian winter clothes were not even coming close to keeping me warm in the frigid temperatures, the hail, and yes, there was snow that year.
Bell sleeves are suddenly everywhere. My coat combines those with an easy pale tan color and a simple shape. When I team it with my favorite skinny jeans, a crisp white shirt, and a pair of nude lace-up ballet flats it gets a great new lease on life.
