Hello dearest readers! Welcome back to this second installation of Style This | Coat Dress from Exhibit Store.
I live along the equator on the small sunny island of Singapore, where the only climate changes we experience is sun and rain. Well ok, there is rain, heavy rain and thunderstorm. ;-p
As we approach the year end, the temperatures do slide a little lower from the usual 32degrees to about 26-28 degrees when it rains but when the sun comes out again, the ground warms up and suddenly we are hit by the heat and humidity.
So the easiest way to prepare yourself from the sudden change of temperature and humidity is to be armed with an outer wear which you can remove when temperatures start to rise.
I style Exhibit Store coat dress as a long coat and rolled up sleeves.
The Exhibit Store coat dress is made out of a heavy cotton and double lined on the front to give it structure. To prevent it from looking like a stiff looking laboratory coat, I added a white leather belt to clinch the waist so that I do not lose shape and end up looking frumpy.
The leaf prints skirt from The Velvet Dolls added interest to the look and complimented the coat with its sections of white.
If you would like to try to use some of your coat dresses as a long outer coat, a tip would be for the hem of your inner piece to end at the same point if not higher than your coat to avoid looking overwhelmed by the coat.
Leave the long coat + long midi skirt look to supermodels or lucky beings with legs that go on forever. Otherwise, chances are you will end up looking heavy and stunted.
And when the rain clouds are gone, all you gotta do is remove the coat dress and you are ready to brave the sun!
