Mark Montano shows how can transform a plain blazer into a lace trimmed coat dress. It’s a clever refashion that uses lace as a decorative element and also as camouflage where other fabric was pieced in. Individual motifs from the lace are placed on the lapels and the sleeve hem to balance the design. It’s beautiful as a dressy garment, but you could also rock the embellished long jacket with a pair of skinnies and tall boots.
