The coat-style is so current! It has taken the Arab fashion scene by storm and has crept its way into the most-fashionable Pakistani and Indian fashion circles as well! Some people seem hesitant, but to those people I say, take the risk! Trust me, it’s worth it.
In the Arab world it is referred to as a Bisht. The coats are either plain or embellished and come in a variety of cuts. Some are straight, some are more flared.
We love this style for several reasons:
A) It is timeless. A total classic. It is something you can pass down to your children because it will always look great and on-trend.
B) It is comfortable and flatters almost all body types. I have seen pregnant women wearing these coats and they just love them. They rave about the comfort and how it looks stunning.
C) It is SO versatile. Members of the Ashrafi team have worn the coats over embellished slips to weddings, and have worn them over a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. Both times they have received countless compliments. These coats can dress up an outfit, but can also be dressed down.
The Bisht/Coats are a staple in the Ashrafi closet. A great investment piece!
Here is an example of a Bisht worn by a lovely Kuwaiti blogger:
