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?
Yep I do plan on trying this out! And we were just having this very discussion you and I a few days ago! 😉
I really see it on you! Can’t wait for the office fashion show!
I saw a gorgeous one in Zara in camel! But I decided to buy culottes. Can you ease give mesons footwear ideas?
Working on it!
Rachel Comey can do no wrong. It’s all for the very tall though, so I will personally abstain…
Is that a HINT villedary, because before this post I knew nothing of this trend… but now I think I love it.
Oh it would look slamming on you, suzanne, Angelique! But the whole layering thing is really hard when you’re under 5-5″. You end up cutting your whole length up and look like a stumpy bag lady, unless you’re Kate Moss.
I have seen you Em in your cape! You would rock this! It’s all about finding the right silhouette for each person. I can’t do boxy but I can do a belt.
I love love my cape- it’s got such a great line. I just can’t do layered sleeveless without looking like a potato octopus. IVE TRIED!!rlook like a
Annabelle, we need to shop and set you up with this look. On the asap.
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!
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 $9 they had a additional on sale items but it’s a large. I was thinking maybe pulling it off as a overly boyfriend vest but I’m still not sure. Wish I can repost this post ”
9$? what a steal! Feel free to repost! 🙂
Just did! Tell me about it ! I was like no way this cant be $9 haha 🙂
