Girls We Like: Katie And Her Stable of Black Coats

Pin it


I was standing outside a bar in Williamsburg on my requisite cigarette break when I saw Katie. I figured her casual style and laid-back demeanor marked her as just the person to strike up a conversation with as we both braved the elements. A New Mexico native, Katie says her look incorporates bits from all over – everything from punk and rockabilly to couture and more classic style. But what intrigued me the most was the sleek Alexander Wang tuxedo coat she wore over her blouse – one of the many black coats she relies on to tie her disparate styles together. And if I didn’t like her before, the simple but fantastic origin story of this particular piece would have won me over in a second.

Mouse over the photo to see the coat’s story and where Katie found the rest of her outfit.
