The designers have transformed a simple coat into the latest fashion in pastel yellow tones.
These perfect models look great when worn over a transparent cotton chintz dress. A mono-look with matching leather skirts will look stylish as well.

What to wear with a leather coat
A leather coat is a basic item that can be worn for almost all occasions. Perhaps the only exception will be a wedding – and that only if it’s your wedding. Such coats go well with jeans, trousers, skirts and dresses of any length. With leather coats, massive boots, ankle boots, patent leather heeled pumps or fashionable sneakers look extremely stylish (perfect for a casual outfit).
