A netted overcoat with a silver shine.
As we commenced a segment “beg, borrow & steal”, I bring to you my mom’s classic long overcoat.
It is another elegant piece from my mom’s timeless collection.
The highlight of this overcoat is that my mom owned it when she was 18 years old.
She had set it aside for discarding it.
Thanking my inquisitive side, when it comes to my mom’s wardrobe, I had to dig in for a good look at the pile for taking into my possession whatever I found not worth chucking out.
The long silver net overcoat has been with me for quite some time now. And, here I am sharing with you my pretty outfit idea using my mom’s old outfit element.
Here is the outfit, you all.
In the image above, I have worn a black inner tee, with black velvet trousers with a black hijab and black checkered strap sandals. The spotlight is stolen by the long silver overcoat.
For accessorizing, I chose a simple black and silver ring.
Sleeves of the inner being long, I opted for a minimal look.
The inner can also be white, however, the long overcoat will not then stand out as much. The other colours the overcoat can be paired with is grey, white, silver or red. Do let me know in the comments below if you have more colour combination ideas for the coat in the post.
The overcoat is long, elegant and very classy. Hence, paired with wide-legged trousers.
Pairing it with denim could also be a great idea.
However, I decided on the above outfit coz I wanted the long coat to be the focal point of the outfit.
Do let me know in the comments below if you have better ideas to pair such long elegant overcoats with.
