LONG FOR A COAT
The pre-war look is still with us, exerting a wintry influence on coats. The casual trench has been restyled, and is now longer, with squarer shoulders. Large shoulder bags and high-styled Granny shoes follow the look through. It could have been borrowed from an old Rita Hayworth film. Length varies from just below the knee to mid-calf, and although some coats are slimly cut, they all have that marked Granny look, and are made up of appropriate fabrics like tweeds, smooth wools and velvets.
