SLEEVELESS COATS

If there’s one item of clothing that is the hallmark of “transitional dressing” then it’s the sleeveless coat. When it’s not hot anymore but it’s not quite cold, it’s the ideal piece to have. Editors and the likes were sporting the sleeveless look all over the streets at NYFW last week – including TKTK in her gorgeous canary yellow one.  It’s definitely an on-trend piece, and I’m totally on board.

There are so many different ways you can go with this trend. (And if I hadn’t waited so long to make a decision on one then I wouldn’t have missed my size in this Mango one.) There’s the super classic: a trench. This is one you really can wear year-round which is always nice. Another equally classic option is a camel version. You really can’t go wrong with a camel coat – sleeveless or not. (If I hadn’t waited so long to make a decision then I wouldn’t have missed my size in this Mango one.) I also love this gray one from Topshop. There’s no collar, making the silhouette even more streamlined. (This JOA one has a similar look but it’s under $150.) Or you can throw caution to the wind and go for it with a bright color. There’s this one from Tibi that’s pretty perfect. I love the pale blue hue. For something brighter: how about this red one? You can also score some good sea
