Sleeveless coats are often seen on the catwalks. What is the name of this new design art and how to wear it?
Women's sleeveless coat has been in trend for several seasons. At first, European ladies appreciated the novelty: a handy thing when there is no frost, but the heat has not yet come.
In Russia, at first fashionistas were in no hurry to buy an unusual thing in their wardrobe. It was not entirely clear how and with what to wear such clothes.
Sleeveless coat - what is the name of such clothes?
Many women have coats in their wardrobe. They differ in style, material and can be completely different colors. But for those who want to stand out from the general background, designers offer to pay attention to the cape.
What is this? In fact, this is the same coat, but without sleeves. The material from which the models are sewn is also diverse. For warm autumn days, the coat can be made of jacquard and look like a warm jacket.
For colder weather, sleeveless coats are made of wool, tweed or cashmere. Such outerwear is especially appreciated by women who often spend time driving. As a rule, sleeves greatly interfere with riding, and it’s not too comfortable to sit in bulky clothes incar. But a thin coat with slits for the arms is a great solution.
Like regular outerwear, capes are different. In stores you can see a cape with and without a hood, with a belt and flared, in the form of a jacket or with cutouts for the hands. Colors and materials also vary. Fashionistas will always choose the right option for all occasions.
When to wear a cape?
If the coat is made of tweed or wool, then wear it in autumn, when there are no severe frosts yet. A jumper with warm sleeves must be worn under it, because the cape will not warm you in this particular place.
Lighter sleeveless cashmere or jacquard coats are great for spring. When the sun is already shining outside, but still there is not enough heat, the cape is put on over a turtleneck or a light jumper.
Like a regular coat, sleeveless clothes can be complemented with a scarf and gloves, but always long ones.
But still, despite all the advantages, sleeveless outerwear does not belong to the category of practical. But if a woman does not plan to stay in the cold for a long time and there is another option for cold days, then why not diversify her wardrobe?
Summer coats look especially impressive. They are usually made of light cotton jacquard and worn over the dress. You can wear it in the evening when the midday heat subsides, or for a solemn event.
