Long Coat Love

CC just adores a coat whose tails graze the ground as she walks… but alas, they are so hard to find! There were some gorgeous versions on the runway, however… enjoy, darlings! Photos via style.com.

Tell CC, darlings: Which topper do you find most tantalizing?
Do you wear full length coats in the winter? Or do you prefer shorter jackets? Understandably, many women reserve long coats for more formal occasions. Go crazy once in a while though, darlings, and wear those lengthy lovelies for day!

Wow. There are some great coats in here. But without a doubt, the Naeem Khan is my favorite. What color!

The Pocket Stylist said...

Lanvin and Jean Paul Gaultier Couture created stunning long coats I am in love!!

Wanderlusting said...

I'm back!!! Lol

To be honest though, I have never been able to do the long coat. I think I am too short for it :S

But nothing looks better than a long sweeping coat on a statuesque dame!

Stunning, but I prefer the middle long coat. :-)

XoXo

Jacqueline said...

I don't typically do long long coats, but it wouldn't take too much to convince me to wear the Byblos white one :)

Happy Friday!

LPC said...

Oh the drama!

FashionHippieLoves said...

really adore the Max Mara coat...

I prefer shorter jackets, hip-length coats, and 3/4 length coats myself. The thing with long coats is that on someone who's more petite, you'd probably have to chop off quite a bit from the hem for the desired length. :-)

The Little Fashion Treasury said...

Happy friday to you, CC!

You truly picked some amazing coats! I honestly have to say that I would prefer a jacket or a shorter coat with cropped sleeves..maybe ;)

Enjoy your weekend!!!!

Love most Loewe and Max Mara!Other one so sexy and other classy.I think long coat is very practical for cold winter.If i m in Finland winter time i prefer full lenght coat,just to keep myself warm:)

Kristin said...

Remember that one Kate Hudson wore in her wedding? SO gorgeous!

Style Justice said...

Great selection!

MizzJ said...

haha it's true, long black coats, particularly trenches make you look goth! How can you wear a long coat if you're short without looking shorter?

Leah said...

Leah adores long coats too. I love the Kenzo and Missoni coats.

Fashion Court said...

Maria Confer said...

I usually prefer shorter coats in the winter, although some of these have really caught my eye. I particularly like the Jean Paul Gaultier one.

nookie said...

great picks!

Petra Bellejambes said...

Hmmm. For me my dear it must be the Lanvin and the Max Mara. A good long coat over a short(ish) skirt is a terrific look. A modest flash of leg warms a winter up nicely.

Bon fin de semaine and my very warmest double cheeked besous ...

Pixel Wild Child said...

I love the goth images OMG! sooo great, I can't help it... I wouldn't wear anything like that but I love seeing it...

Hunters Glory said...

Erika said...

Chrisy said...

I scroll down and it 'ooh i love that one'...then 'ooooh i really love that one'....'oh my that one is gorgeous'...till I've covered most of these!

Hanako66 said...

gorgeous! it's not very cold here so I do not have full length coats but love the look!

FB @ FabulouslyBroke.com said...

Wish I was tall enough to pull it off

Those things swallow me whole!!!

I am way too short for that. Only 3/4 coats work.

xAZD said...

Gabbi said...

Gorgeous coats dear CC, I'm completely in love with the Anna Sui red velvet especially.... amazing.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Brigadeiro said...

chuckles said...

i love the 3rd from last coat. It's divine. I dont normaly wear long coat since I'm quite short :(

Style Redux said...

Ohh these are absolutely fab. I found a great long black coat that I cannot wait to wear. I think it's such a hot statement, especially paired with boots.

Pink Links said...

Thanks for your great and lovely coat photos!

I have two long coats, dark blue and brown but I would like to have a pink long coat. Now I have only short pink coats.

xoxo

Keith said...

These are some really beautiful coats. Some of these are very stunning. I hope you had a great Friday. Take care. Enjoy the weekend.

sisters in black frocks said...

if only LA would ever get chilly enough to enjoy a long coat

Tea For Two said...

Wow, gorgeous coats. I had a floor length leather as a teenager. I wouldn't do the floor-trailing thing now. I didn't grow much and I don't know if I can pull it off at 5'1"! Still, MK does it and it does look fabulous.

Nubia said...

Wow I love that Vivienne Westwood one its Fab

CMA said...

Make Do Style said...

I had an amazing long velvet coat I sold on ebay - how stupid was I!!

I'm going to be head down for a week to write 12,000 words so I might post but probably won't comment due to my deadline.

Beth said...

Gorgeous choices of long coats!
Love this trend.
Awesome post :)

lilmisszolicious said...

hi carrie, amazing photos. I love the coat that is wearing the asian model: it has the perfect silhouette and colour etc.

xoxo zola

Chloé said...

Byblos coat is the perfect, perfect one! But I don't think they're practical, especially that one. I'm afraid it'd get dirty far too soon!

Debbie Shiamay said...

CC I love your blog as usual. I come here for all my inspiration and love all the photos!!! I cant even point out which one i love best

Quixsa said...

Inty swetha said...

ZY(Zakuro Yugo) said...

As you said so, truly it's difficult to find and choose a nice long coat which fits for the person.

ps)Do you like Viveka Bergstrom's jewels?

xZY
