Obsession of the Day: Elizabeth and James Long Duster Coat

I know that it’s sunny outside but let’s face it: spring is basically weather by Ouija board and you never exactly know what’s coming around the corner. Cooler evenings and bizarre changes in temperatures make it necessary for a lightweight, stylish coat to top off your emsemble.

Which is why I am DEAD ON THE FLOOR over this long duster coat. With an edgy, slightly-gothic silhouette and a touch of sparkle at the front hem, this is THE PIECE to top off anything you’re wearing this season. 70’s flares and a light blouse? Check? Flowing evening look? Check. Cute mini with a chiffon blouse and wedges? Yep. How about a sequined tank, denim shorts and peep toe ankle boots? Done.

I personally love the idea of this fabulous coat over a shimmering evening dress. It kind of fills my fantasy of the glamorous woman who was rescued by a nightwatchman and he lent her his coat.

Just me reading too many bodice-ripping romance novels? Fine, but the coat’s still fabulous. Get after it.
