The Long and the Short of It

A print coat in any length will do, from cropped to maxi and everything in between. Throw a maxi coat over your mini for contrasting proportions. A knee-length coat over the same length dress is a ladies-that-lunch must-have. A cropped jacket over a long, voluminous skirt makes it office appropriate.

Prints, Prints and More Prints!

Spring/Summer 2015’s vivid prints are as varied as the personalities who wear them. Allover florals add a vintage feel, while oversized mod prints have a 60s vibe that screams peace and love. What colors are hot for your new print coat? We say, you can’t go wrong and the more, the merrier!
