We’ve all seen the sad sight of a gorgeous woman in a beautiful evening gown wearing a utilitarian day coat because she doesn’t have something as fabulous and frothy as the dress to keep away the evening chill. Every woman should have a great evening coat or wrap so that she isn’t the woman wearing a dull day coat over her diaphanous gown.
As it happens, I saw a great option for evening over at Bluefly.
This lustrous gold sateen puff sleeved coat from Cole Haan will look every bit as elegant as what’s underneath without attempting to take center stage for itself. The 3/4 sleeves and self belt are elegant and on trend while the notched collar is a timeless classic element. There’s a hidden button placket and a back kick pleat, too. The length also makes it appropriate for the cocktail hour and more formal daytime events.
Of course one reason so many women never get an evening coat is the pricetag so often attached. Well, as luck would have it, Bluefly has just taken an extra discount on this superfantastic piece. The original retail price was $595.00. Bluefly’s original price was $299.99. But right now it’s been marked down to $269.99! That’s 55% off the retail price!
At a price like that, a lot more of us can afford to make the best possible entrance.
