convertible coat





COAT Reciproque vintage find (try this blue number or a waistcoat topper) / LEATHER JACKET Rachel Roy (similar) / TOP H&M / COATED DENIM BDG (on sale now!) or try these / GLOVES Bloomingdale’s (on sale now!) / ANKLE BOOTS Stuart Weitzman (similar and on sale!)

This vintage coat was my biggest splurge on a recent trip to Paris, and while I’m still paying the credit card bill, the versatility of this piece was well worth the price.  It’s finding unique pieces like this one that make vintage shopping oh-so-rewarding.  Whether worn as a cropped jacket, waistcoat, or as full on winter garb, this coat is a multi-season piece and a new closet staple.

Tip.  Throw a waistcoat or gilet over a leather jacket in lieu of  your go-to winter coat for a thoughtfully layered look.

    Good eye Jess!!!! Way to think ahead of the seasons I don’t know if I would’ve been able to splurge and wait two whole season to enjoy it! But you proved it’s not about instant gratification with this buy!

  4. Wow this coat is dope!
