There is something so sexy about a robe coat or trench coat worn as a dress… I fell in love with this Line and Dot black coat the moment I laid eyes on it. I have worn it so many different ways, some of which I’ve shared on Instagram including; as a jacket over easy separates, with jeans, or even with a simple black slip dress.

Can you tell I’m obsessed? I literally haven’t taken this thing off, and the styling power is proving to withstand the 10+ wears I already have underneath my belt. I’m still not bored! For a new twist, I wore my robe coat as a dress. It’s the fine line where prep gets a little scandalous, and I love it. It cinches in the waist, creates a feminine silhouette, and is so comfortable you feel like you have your bath robe on (oh wait, you basically do!)

If you chose to try this look, I suggest wearing a nude dress underneath so you feel a little more protected. The super high slit is so sexy, and breaks up the coat in the a slightly sultry way. I know a few of you out there will question my shoe choice here. I wanted to ground the look and make it more daytime, so I went with chunky strap sandals that almost feel like hospital shoes. I like the minimal approach it has – it feels like something you’d see in a 3.1 Phillip Lim Pre-Fall lookbook. Shop a few of my favorite robe/ trench coats below and wear them like a dress all summer and into fall!
