This bright red coat from the 1960's is perfect for fall and winter.  When neutrals are just about everywhere this time of the year, cheery and colorful outerwear can bring some life to a dull cold weather wardrobe.  The large buttons, deep front pockets, and boucle wool are lovely details that are sure to be noticed.  Check it out in the shop!

1960's Mint wool coat

VintageRachel ChurchComment

I know I'm posting two coats in one week, but this one is just so beautiful that I couldn't resist.  It's a 1960's mint blue wool coat that was handmade.  It has no labels and no "union made" tags, but by the style and look I'm assuming that it's from the 50's or 60's.  It has large covered buttons and 3/4 length sleeves.  The mandarin collar is great and the soft silk lining is so pretty.  Because it's not super thick or bulky, but still has some weight and substance to it, I think it would be the perfect fall coat (or...winter coat in states that don't get too cold).  This coat has amazing lines and fun button loop details that really make it stand out.  The color is .. well ... amazing.  Is it "mint to be" for you and this coat? Yeah, I just went there, but you always have to leave room for corny.  Check it out in the Etsy shop today!
