“Our coat is a classic staple inspired by Audrey Hepburn. The silhouette is elegant without too much fuss. The Peter Pan collar is timeless, while the high waistline flatters the figure, and the belt ties it all together. We made ours mod in a silk bouclé with black buttons and buckle. Try it in a bold orange or yellow å la Breakfast at Tiffany’s, or black gabardine for a downtown look.”
