Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez: Coat Dresses for a Night Out in London

Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez were spotted in London a few nights ago. No, they didn’t go clubbing. Instead, the two girls went for a nice dinner at Jamie Oliver’s new restaurant (Covent Garden), then went for some ice cream. It was all good and clean fun.

Interestingly, the two were dressed alike. Both were in coats, Selena in a black swing coat with cape, and Taylor in a classic khaki version:

I like how they opted to button their coats all the way up and wear it like mini dresses, I find the look very cute and sexy.

Coats are abundant this season, but don’t limit its use to outerwear. Take a cue from these girls, wear it like a dress if you must, belt it on the waist, pin a brooch to it, don’t be afraid to try different looks with it.  Here are a couple of coats that can double up as dresses:
