When the “motoring coats” of the last century were shortened to mid thigh in the 1950’s… they became known as car coats.
This new design allowed the wearer to ease in and out of cars without having to adjust extra fabric around seat belts…and make sure nothing was left jammed in the door! Usually unbelted and sometimes with a dolman sleeve…a perfect car coat can easily accommodate your favourite fall and winter sweater.
Thought I would share my great find last week at Topshop...this warm and comfy car coat is a great buy at $120.00 cad…check it out here.
Here are some of my other favourites….
