Favorites- Cocoon Coats

It's not hard to see where they got their name, and with those slinky dresses of the late nineteen-teens through the thirties not hard to see why cocoon coats stayed in fashion for so long either.

Whether it's an original or a modern take on the classic, like this blue velvet version, they are just stunning in their simple, sumptuous lines.

I have an emerald-green evening gown, and was inspired by this picture to get some teal-green and gold burn-out velvet to make a similar coat to wear with the dress.

  1. I have a beauty, rather like the last pic, mole velvet with fox. Alas, the fur is starting to split....my own fault.

  2. Oh, it's so sad that the fur is splitting. Can you take it somewhere and have it repaired?
