On Our Radar: Evening Coat

Bring back the evening coat.

While the rest of us are still getting our grips on this year’s winter coat, the evening coat may be making a comeback. You know the one, the ornate, wear to a special occasion kind of coat. Perhaps your mum has one that you’ve borrowed for a winter wedding?

Kylie Minogue wears it well, all be it during the day in London recently, in this Dolce and Gabbana floral coat (£1670, Browns Fashion). To steal her style, head to Monsoon for a new identical version €280.

Fran and Jane are also masters of the evening coat, like this beaded petal coat with embellishment around at the cuffs and collar – it comes in magenta, red or black (€229).

The Fran and Jane styles might be too “motherly” for some, so for classic evening coat glamour in black, a la Anne Hathaway at the IFP’s 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards, try Oasis for size (€125).
