With all the rules and lists and â€œwear this, donâ€™t wear thatâ€ articles that get lobbed our way, itâ€™s easy to forget that clothing should never be taken too seriously. If what youâ€™re wearing doesnâ€™t make you smile, then youâ€™re probably doing something wrong. Sometimes though, we all need to be reminded of this, and so in the spirit of fun, letâ€™s give it up to the olâ€™ raccoon coat. As a staple of East Coast style that popped up during the roaring twenties, the raccoon coat is ostentatious, gaudy, and downright fun. Undergrads wore them on game day and blue bloods tossed them over their tuxes. The raccoon coat said, â€œIâ€™m dressed better than and I know it.â€ Just look at these guys, they’re dressed ridiculous, and they’re loving it. As styles have changed, today that message reads more like, â€œIâ€™m trying way too hard to be Jay Gatsby,â€ but at least we have these photos to remind us that if youâ€™re having fun, you can pull off just about anything.
