We Love Ruth Negga’s Oriental Coat – Here Are Three Affordable Aternatives

Irish actress Ruth Negga is carving out a unique place for herself in the fashion world. From the modest but striking Valentino gown she wore to the Academy Awards last year to the Louis Vuitton oriental brocade frock coat she’s pictured in above at the Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards, Negga continues to make refreshingly unpredictable style choices. If you’re looking for fresh style inspiration, Ruth Negga is one to watch. And if it’s her oriental coat that has particularly caught your eye, here are five wallet-friendly alternatives.

This sequinned kimono-style dress is a showstopper, perfect for the upcoming party season. It’s more of a dress coat, so wear it over a slip dress or tuxedo trousers for evening, and black jeans for day.

Kimono-style sequinned dress, €229 at Uterque.com

Nothing says Christmas party quite like velvet. I love the rich autumnal shades and tactile feel of this gorgeous kimono dress. Lose the polo-neck for evening and wear with statement earrings instead.

Printed velvet kimono coat, €59.95 at Zara

This shorter-style kimono coat would look stunning over a pair of tuxedo trousers. I love the stars and moon motifs. They add a lovely point of difference to this oriental piece.
