Lapel

Definition: Lapel

Lapel

n. Extension of the garment that is sewn to the collar and folds back over the chest area. Typical in jackets and coats and also in some blouses and dresses. Notched lapel is the most classic. Higher fashion menswear lapels are semi or peaked, with sharply pointed extension. Collars arose from simple necklines to support neckwear, then were turned over into lapels starting in the late 18th century.

Take home this DKNY Metallic All Weather Trench Coat, on sale for $112 (originally $168).
