An outerwear essential, the coat is the ultimate finishing touch allowing you to shape and seal your look just the way you intended. Dress up a casual pair of denims and a t-shirt with a luxurious minimal cashmere blend coat with barely-there buttons; add instant effect to a simple monochromatic ensemble with a retro vintage carpet coat; or honour past time formality in dress and sport a classic trench teamed with a well-kept pair of trousers and a shirt. Mannish or ladylike, bold or blend-in, coats make out key pieces in any sartorialist’s wardrobe, all year round.
OfV says: Our stellar edit of vintage coats is a true feast for the eye. Whether you’re after a Jackie O-nodding pop colour 1960s coat; an antique Edwardian embroidered robe; a cape-style 1970s Yves Saint Laurent overcoat; or a classic vintage trench coat, we’ve got your unique vintage coat covered. From full-length vintage fur coats to transparent plastic rain coats, invest in a selection of coats that suit your style and purpose. A vintage statement coat with embroidery or textured embellishments would wear well both with off-duty looks and classic tailoring. A ladylike swinging sixties style fitted coat is perfect for layering with a matching A-line dress. Consider a navy coat to replace the classic black – the rich, versatile colour will add depth to your overall ensemble whilst being smart enough for events that require a level of formality. Pair your vintage coat with a trouser suit, skirt suit or dress suit from the same era; or team your vintage coat with pre-owned, past-season ready-to-wear and designer accessories for a modern twist.
