trend report - the swing coat

Swing into spring with a 60s-inspired swing jacket to ward off the last of the winter chill. Huge buttons, round collars and simple lines characterize the mod shape of this season's hottest little coat. With a cropped style that fits cleanly at the shoulders and floats gleefully away from the waist, the swing jacket can be worn on just about any body shape with a flattering result. Pair a pink puffed sleeve version with your favorite pair of jeans or top a pencil skirt and heels to wow the girls at the office. Rival Rachel and Nicole with your take on this versatile trend.

I scored a cute one of these at Kohl's......they were having a huge sale and I bought mine for $12.00! So if the trend tanks, I didn't spend a lot......

I scored a cute cropped swing trench at Urban Outfitters...but beware! If the swing coat lines "swing out" around your hips and your thighs are wider than you calves (because you're not 12 or on heroin), you'll look like humpty dupmpty. That's because you have a triangular shape on top and a reverse triangular shape on bottom, looking very heavy where you meet up. (Watch out skinny jeans wearers) Straight over even wide leg pants work better, a dress or skirt is best!
