Heart Set on… The Victorian Blue Coat

I am usually not drawn to the pastel color range, but I’ve been seeing this light blue color all over the social media channels and I cannot get enough. This color originated in the Victorian era and became largely popular in the 1920’s and its reemergence has been seen on on the runways and on the streets everywhere. Whether you call it dusty blue or powder blue, something about this color screams winter to me. It is no surprise that I have been on the hunt and this item has risen to the top on my current wishlist.

I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite show-stoppers and I hope you agree that this color is a stunning addition to anyone’s coat collection.

Dusty Blue Trench

Dusty blue + trench is a combo I have yet to see until now. This piece is super unique and I love that Chicwish kept the trench a more classic shape. It gives the blue color all the more of a pop factor.

Cashmere Coat

For the girl who has a bit of a bigger budget for an investment piece, this coat is one hell of a luxury piece. Made of a blend of wool and cashmere, this coat is soft and would last a lifetime.

Sky Blue Pearl Detail Coat

This is one of the more interesting coats as far as details on this list. This coat is in the traditional pastel blue, but the sleeves are where the detail is at. Tucked into each sleeve is a pin/pearl detail and I just love how unique this is.

Classic Blue/Gray Coat

If you are one of those people who are more into minimal color, this coat is for you. It’s a classic shape and it touches just a little on the blue color. I think with the addition of the gray, this coat feels much more subdued.

Collarless Coat

If you are looking for a coat that isn’t quite as structured and classic, this coat is a great option. The coat has buttons all the way down, but it has no collar. Perfect for adding a fun scarf to! I love how Boden styled this too with the striped rainbow sweater.

So what do you think of the dusty blue trend? Are you going to pick up a new coat or sit this one out? I’d love to hear your thoughts below.

Until next time,
