Cocostyling – How to wear… the boyfriend coat

Hello cuties,

today I’d love to share a couple of styling proposals for what has been dubbed as “the boyfriend coat”: single or double breasted, its straight cut recalls a classic gentlemanly coat.

Do YOU own a boyfriend coat? How do YOU like styling it?
Looking forward to hearing from you buttercups!

    Coco these are great styling tips, thx bunches honey. Yep I do have a bf-coat. Mostly I wear skinnies with it. Should try a dress or a skirt. But the coat is longer than my dresses, lol so it wouldn&#39;t make much sense. Style-wise I mean. <br />Happy Sunday darling<br />kisses<br />Lenya<br /><a href="; rel="nofollow">FashionDreams&amp;Lifestyle</a>

    Boyfriend coats are so chic! Love both outfits, but I think the second one is my favorite – LOVE the idea of a feminine skirt with a more masculine boyfriend coat!<br /><br />xo Deborah<br /><a href="; rel="nofollow">Coffee, Prose, and Pretty Clothes</a>

    Ne vorrei uno anche io! I sets sono entrambi molto belli Vale, ma il primo è il mio preferito!:) Un bacio e buona serata!:**

  6. Dania Carbonini - January 12, 2014

    Il secondo set mi piace molto Vale anche se questo tipo di cappotto lo vedo più adatto ad un look casual come il primo.<br />Un bacio<br /><br />NEW POST<br /><br />

  57. Sam - January 13, 2014

    Hi Val, love how you paired this chic neutrals together, very suave and sophisticated. Id wear them both. I am so grateful for your insightful comments. Have a great week ahead hun!

  58. Con estilo al cubo - January 13, 2014

    Both outfits are perfect. Fantastic combinations!<br /><br />xx

  59. Christine Ly - January 14, 2014

    I think both outfits are nice, but I would prefer wearing the first one. It&#39;s too bad it&#39;s too warm here to wear a coat. Can you believe 85+ degree weather in the winter? <br /><br />Sincerely, Christine from <a href="; rel="nofollow">Invisible Blush</a>

  60. Debra - January 14, 2014

    Lovely boards dearest. 🙂 I would wear the boyfriend coat both ways. And maybe with a dress as well. Thank you for your style tips! 😉 xo<br /><br />
