1970s Unlabeled Black Sequin Full Length Trench Style Maxi Coat

I have the twin of this coat in my own personal vintage closet and wear it endlessly. The combination of that classic trench coat design, the full length of it, and those dramatic sequins make it a vintage staple. The collar of the coat os over sized and pointed with all that seventies exaggeration to the shape that you want. The sleeves are cut straight and simple. It crosses over itself at the front and snaps to close and has a sequin belt that you can wrap and tie to add extra shape. The lower portion of the coat sweeps out to the floor and widens as well so you get lots of movement when you move. That full length allows you to throw it over absolutely everything from jeans to a ball gown. The coat is finished with a covering of glossy black sequins that literally cover every inch. Thousands and thousand of sequins have been used and the effect when they catch the light is amazing. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a black silky rayon. Closes at the front with hidden snaps. Sequinned covered elastic belt. Pockets set along each hip. I see no areas of sequin loss. The cut will fit a variety of sizes
