A Coat is Not A Dress (But It Can Be)

Double-duty is what we're talking about.
|

Let’s talk a bit about mileage for a second. In simple terms, mileage in the world of shopaholics, stores and credit cards refers to how much wear you’re going to get out of something. A white shirt, for example, gets plenty of mileage. A coat though? Not so much. When you live in the sunny island of Singapore, the only times that a coat gets worn are when you’re not actually in Singapore, or when it’s monsoon season and you like to pretend that it’s “fall” because you’re vain as hell and you need any justification you can get to whip out your fall stash. Come on, we know you’re guilty of the latter – we definitely are.

So, here’s a simple way to un-seasonalise the coat: by pretending that it isn’t one. Wear it as a dress by buttoning up or just throw on a belt. Or wear it as a top, like what I’m doing with the Louis Vuitton coat above (alternatives that don’t break the bank here, here and here). No shirt necessary. Trim off a layer, trim off the (potential) sweat. And, for that extra dose of ventilation, a super-high ponytail which actually does create some wind when you walk fast enough. #truth
