Are we doing this? The sleeveless coat


I saw this link and fell in love with the sleeveless coat trend. How do you make this 70’s avant-guard look work? I did a little on-line research and discovered:

  • I love the attitude it makes when you mix this menswear with casual pieces.
  • If you want sleeves, it’s a good idea to layer what you expose, be it your leather or denim jacket, thinner sweater, t-shirt, dress shirt, or lumberjack shirt.
  • It’s all about thin belts, statement scarves, and playing with a mix of footwear.

I plan on getting this one from dynamite to wear with shorts and a t-shirt, or dress it up with black for the office.

If this look is too avant-guard for you, then I hope you at least enjoy this. A friend posted it on instagram and it made me giggle.



Do you plan on trying or skipping this trend, or perhaps flirting with sleeveless denim jackets, capes, or ponchos?

  1. Love the look — but mostly the straight-up-and-down column cut jackets… I feel like you would have to be supermodel skinny to pull off the trenchcoat or more full-skirted jacket. Or maybe that’s because I have NO waist and super-long legs so I fear those kind of cuts in all clothes!

  2. I’m in love with the first look! I agree I love mixing the men’s wear with feminine touches. I bought one randomly at wet seal for $9 they had a additional on sale items but it’s a large. I was thinking maybe pulling it off as a overly boyfriend vest but I’m still not sure. Wish I can repost this post ”
