Would You Wear… a Bell Coat?

Whether you’re ready or not, it’s time to start thinking about winter clothes. After all, unless you’re living in the Deep South, temperatures are dropping. We all have our go-to coat for the season: a peacoat, a trench, or perhaps a warm bomber jacket. If you’re interested in stepping up your coat game this season with a super-trendy style, a bell coat is the way to go.

Characterized by a slight flare-out in the bottom section, the bell coat resemblesget this – a bell! It’s an unusual shape, but can be tremendously flattering when worn with something fitted on the bottom. This is not the coat to pair with your favorite flowing maxi skirt or slouchy boyfriend jeans. Opt for leggings and sky-high shoes for optimal results.

Not sure about this trend yet? Here’s how we’d rock it…

    I would totally wear one of these in a heart beat! This would look super cute with some skinny’s and tall boots!

    Bell coats are cute, but I don’t think they would flatter my body shape or height.
