Dressy Coats and Wraps
Brrr, a cold snap is settling in and you’ve got to find the right coat or wrap to wear over your gown. MomsFashionFile.com to the rescue. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite looks to keep you warm and fashionable as you make your way to cocktail parties and holiday balls. Neiman Marcus offers this chic long Ruffled Velvet Coat ($585) that pairs well with longer dresses. The dramatic neckline elevates this from ordinary to extraordinary. A good investment.
A ruffle cashmere wrap is our choice to go over your Little Black Cocktails dress. Don’t be afraid to play with color. This winter white version works with red, navy, jewel tones…so many options. The Bloomingdale’s version is on sale now for $125–scoop it up and be cozy and cute at the same time–a great pick for warmer climates.
And what about fur? While we aren’t card-carrying PETA members, we do think faux is the kinder, gentler way to go. Here’s a peek at a faux version from Juicy Couture ($358)–love this warm color and the modern, yet classic shape.
Nothing ruins the look of a glamorous gown like a dowdy coat. We know evening coats can be pricey, so we suggest shopping after the holidays, looking in consignment shops and braving discount designer spots like outlets. We spotted this one on ebay.
