Vintage 60s Mod Orange Coat

I am over-the-moon in love with this coat. It's vintage mid to late 1960's and completely Mod. And it's orange. How could you not love an orange coat?

Narciso Rodriguez showed a bright burst of an orange coat in his Fall/Winter 2008 line. Ralph Lauren, Nina Ricci, and Prada also showed bright orange for fall.

Take a look at the details of that 1960's coat. The strong geometric seams are accented with topstitching. And those buttons? They have hot pink centers. Pair this coat with hot pink tights and you've got an eye-popping and eye-catching outfit that is true vintage but fits right in with today's style trends.
