Giving a nod to the 1950's, this coordinating coat and dress references the classic Burberry coat style, while modernizing the look. A golden yellow mohair trench coat is accented with a cranberry multi-colored tweed, and a variety of visual detail; epaulettes, rain guard, gun flap, wrist belts, triangular welt pockets, and a tieable accent belt give this coat a modern spin. In coordination, a sheath dress of the cranberry multicolored tweed is in accompaniment. A square neckline, box-pleated center panel with mohair accents, and a thin coordinating belt finish off the dress, and altogether the look becomes one that will leave you hot even in the coldest of winters.
