Winter is almost here. Coatdresses and coat & dress ensembles are an option many brides overlook simply because the concept is just now being reintroduced by a few savvy designers. A coatdress is just that: a lighter weight coat (street or floor length); and can be single or double-breasted. Then there's the coat & dress ensemble. Defined, this is a coat with a dress out of matching fabric underneath it. In the 60s, these were popular mostly for formal occasions. If you like the idea of a fitted coat, you could wear one for your ceremony—long or short—over a corresponding sheath. After the ceremony the coat could be removed so you could move freely throughout the reception.
