Cute Coats To Wear Over Your Party Dress (They're Red Carpet Worthy)

December 10, 2009 by Jeanine Edwards

You’ll normally find us oohing and ahhing over the to-die-for dresses A-list stars are wearing on the red carpet and out on the town. But recently, we’ve  really been feeling their coats. Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon and Kate Hudson are just a few celebrities we’ve spotted in outerwear we’d like to own.

You’ll need to cover up that cute party dress with a coat that is just as opulent (the better to party-hop in)  so we rounded up a few of our favorite star-inspired coats. They’re sure to garner just as much attention as the cocktail dresses underneath them.

kate spade colorblock coat

Pretty purple and red stripes look chic on this slim A-line  colorblock coat–way better than a basic black one (and easy to spot at the coat check).

g by guess trenchcoat

If you don’t want to wear a heavy wool coat, throw on this bold blue trenchcoat. The flared hem is a figure-flattering touch. We like the idea of wearing a just as bold party dress under it–in yellow, red or purple.

t tahari calypso coat

It’s all about the ruffled collar on this cherry red T Tahari coat. It’s festive attire at its best.

snow leopard faux fur coat

Looking for a short, funky coat option? This faux fur coat will keep you warm and looking great, a la Kate Hudson.
