In Full Swing

Another great vintage coat in a completely different shape than the one in the previous post.  I think this would be considered a Swing or Trapeze style, a shape that was popular in the 1940's.  The coat was fitted on top, and then cut from the shoulders so that it would "swing" wide over the hips.  Love the oversize shawl collar, the echoes of tiger-stripes pattern, and how amazing her red bag looks against the coat!
