The Giant Photo Expo Set – Part II

The outfits in this part of the set are quite inventive and cool…first, a slightly more conventional grey and black plaid manteau worn with a pushed-back snood and ankle boots…


now for the coolness- how about a red and white polka dot dress manteau worn with a….YES…hat and scarf set, a rare and rebellious feature of winter manteau styles- and in this case, the hat happens to be a red beret showing off a ponytail through the back!


Another cool style involves an open olive green cardigan and an equally open olive green scarf over a beige turtleneck sweater. The red and green striped scarf on the right is pretty too…


…finally, a conventional black coat features a huge red shawl-like collar which is a bold and attention-getting detail. Love it!



The Best for Last – Two Media Expo Outfits

Finally, here are the best two outfits from the media expo- these are truly awesome. The blue manteau looks regular with jeans and a matching scarf, but what a difference that black and silver gothic collar makes! It immediately adds a touch of rebelliousness and..yes, coolness…to the whole outfit.


I thought the sleeveless denim manteau below had ruffles on the collar, but upon closer examination, it is actually a print in the fabric. The fact it worn as a dress with black leggings (or tights??) and an olive green top is certainly awesome, as is the loosely draped scarf.


I enjoyed these outfits very much and wish there were more like this!

Illustration Exhibition Styles

Took a little break…was busy with family stuff…now am back for a little while again. These two photos are from an illustration exhibition, and the outfits featured are awesome, such as the denim coat with the rolled-up sleeves and the lovely green manteau worn with a semi-diaphanous red scarf from which brown curls flow…


..and this otufit from the same exhibition is stunning- an olive green long manteau worn as a dress over grey knit leggings, brown shoes, and…yes….a beautiful Burberry plaid pattern scarf! This outfit merges so many manteau style trends in one and comes out on top as one of the best of the year!!!



Some New Dress Manteau Styles

I love both of these outfits since both prove that the dress manteau continues to stay popular…but both have weird elements to them that I just cannot comprehend. For example, the beautiful leopard print dress manteau below is truly gorgeous and even looks great with the dark green scarf…but what is up with those turquoise bow sandals with black socks????


Below is an almost all-green outfit with a stunning sleeveless military-style dress manteau, scarf framing dark hair, bracelets, and even nail polish! However, why on Earth would this lady wear white canvas shoes with flower print patterns? Those shoes are extremely uncomfortable, from my personal experience..and do not go with the “urban combat” vibe of the outfit at all.


Red Printed Dress Manteau at the Glass Museum

The stylish, beautifully lit up displays of glass vases are just as gorgeous as the red dress manteau with white flower print all over and what looks like a white lace insert at the neck. The manteau is worn with black leggings and a matching red scarf and some interesting shoes – it looks like they are black with gold accents, but unfortunately, the photo is a bit dark, so it is hard to say for sure.


Manteaus and Robots

For anime fans like myself, this post is a dream come true…..for the first time ever, behold….manteau styles against a background of giant robots! These are from a robotics expo, and the first one features a black manteau with yellow inserts on the sleeves, black leggings and sandals, and a fuchsia scarf. The “724 club” logo refers to some kind of an app (an Instagram page for it can be found here).


The beige dress manteau with purple flower patterns (paired with a pushed-back purple scarf) is stunning. There is also a navy blue coat with a classic pushed-back snood in the background…and a giant robot called Havit. I tried to search for this name, but I only found a company in Hong Kong that produces computer accessories, headphones, and the like…could this be theirs?
