I do love a little shine. It makes me feel instantly glamorous. This fab satin 1950's coat has a matching wiggle dress with a bodice full of rhinestones which I find a bit much when worn together.
Instead, I like to wear the coat on its own with whatever little slip dress I can lay my hands on. I think the shawl collar is particular flattering, especially if you're like me and not blessed with a smooth swan like neck. The colour is between oyster and champagne, which is a great alternative for those who find wearing white too harsh. Plus, as an added benefit it literally goes with absolutely everything!
