Celebrities Wearing Coats December 2011

Trendspotting: Outerwear as Evening Wear

When Winter hits, the thought of leaving our coats at the door can literally send shivers down our spines. Fortunately, this trend makes use of our pretty dresses, favorite accessories, and our best outerwear. With cues from Kirsten Dunst in a belted Burberry trench coat, Alexa Chung in a waist-cinched Burberry pea coat, and Laura Bailey in a cozy, belted Burberry overcoat, we're newly inspired to incorporate our outer layers into a fresh, wintry evening look. No coat check required, these celebs stay snug and styled, adding waist-accentuating belts to temper the volume and streamline their warm toppers. Meanwhile, a pretty pleat, silky slip dress, or leg-baring slit (we're looking at you, Alexa!) plays up the glamour on your bottom half — add in a little fancy footwear and the result is chic enough to head to any of your holiday fêtes. Just shop our key pieces to outfit your own version of this ultra-polished evening look.
