The Burberry Coat

The Burberry coat is a worldwide style icon, easily recognizable thanks to its classic and sleek design. Originally designed in 1912 by Thomas Burberry to protect officers from wind and rain, the coat combines beautifully with any outfit or, as I dared to style today, transformed as the main focus of the outfit.  While it is a fabulous layering pieces, it's even more stunning repurposed as a dress. 

As you know, at the heart of my blog remains the motive of reusing and repurposing the clothing items already in our wardrobe. I do adore shopping, however using a piece of clothing only as intended is quite boring and fashion is adventurous. To transform it into a dress, I let the coat slide off mu shoulders buttoning it down at the chest. To create the effect of puffier balloon sleeves, I tightened the buckles at the wrists. Since it is London after all, the need of something warm underneath was real, so I added a black turtleneck. Not only does it keep my warm, but it creates a contrast with the coat, while still mixing well together. 

It was fun to style, wear and looked chic. Would you wear your trench like this?

Have a pink-tastic day!
