What Is A Blanket Coat...

I know you’re all thinking, WTH is a blanket coat?!?! Don’t be alarmed, I was thinking the same thing when I heard about this new fashion accessory. After a little research (Thank God for Google), I was able to get a little understanding of what a blanket coat was and more importantly, how to wear the thing.

Before we get into how to wear the coat, let’s get a clearer definition of what exactly a blanket coat is. A blanket coat is something like an extra long coat with no buttons and extra long flaps. It’s something like a poncho, for lack of better explanation. It sounds pretty ugly and doesn’t seem like it’s all that wearable, right? Well…WRONG! The blanket coat is one of the most stylish pieces of the season. This chic and stylish garment can be worn with a thick knit sweater, men’s inspired trousers or even a pencil skirt. Since the coat does not have any buttons or zippers, pair it with a belt to give it a closure piece or to add a little shape to the garment.

The beauty of this stylish garment is that it can be worn casually or formally. Having a versatile garment in the closet is every fashionistas dream and this piece here, is definitely it. Try it, you might like it.
