Metro Fashion Column – Summer Car Coats

Hi all,

Whisty Clobber Blogger June 2013 Header

Here’s this month’s Metro Fashion Blogger Column

There’s no debate that summer coats are a necessity for our climate, so why don’t we bother? Most of the time what we wear over our summer clothes is a sartorial choice we hurriedly make just before leaving the house. When the hope that the weather will be warm enough not to wear one, finally fades we grab a jacket from behind the door; mentally aware that we daren’t leave the house in a single layer.

In SS’13, say goodbye forever to the white jacket pulled from the back of the wardrobe in May, for its annual trip to the dry cleaners. And don’t even think about wearing a Pashmina to that ‘do’ in July, just because you think it’s more appropriate than your black wool coat. A carefully chosen summer coat will stop the chilly breezes, (and accompanying Goosebumps – nice), and stylishly look the part for both afternoons in the park and evenings on the roof terrace. Best of all, chosen correctly it should look like it’s part of your whole look, not a weather-wary afterthought. This season’s ‘Car Coat’, comes loose at the waist with unstructured shoulders, has either a deep V or round neck, big low pockets and is tapered to the knee. Wear it open…

Echoing Louis Vuitton’s SS’13 triumphant yellow and white checks, this Zara coat (pictured €79.95) is perfect for this summer. If you can wear yellow that is. (Not jealous if you can at all, at all…). Team with white to keep it pretty or navy blue to add depth. At Jaeger, this Leopard vs. Dalmatian print coat (pictured €275) is great to wear over your shoulders (coats as capes, still big) with Ray Bans and cigarette pants. If you want to combine your SS’13 Car Coat with SS’13’s summer-leather trend, then (carefully) choose this Simone Rocha leather coat at Havana (pictured €3,240.00).
