The dust coat

I love the dust coats

When I was a little girl and went with my mom to my aunt’s lab, I often heard  them talking about the dust coat, as one of the mid-season must-have garment.

The mid season does not exist anymore, I haven’t seen the tailleurs (jacket and skirt) in a wool lither than the one used for winter clothing that along with the dust coat were statement garments for the period and they were worn for less than a couple of months.

Dust coat has come back to life, but with different characteristics, we say it’s  more a summer coat. No longer wool, but silk or cotton. No longer in plain colors, easily matching, but with impressive prints to make it the most important part of the outfit.

I love them, The one I propose today is one of my favorites.
