The side seam of the pants is also noteworthy. The side seam is a vent rather than a closed seam, and there is a large bound buttonhole with jeweled button.

Check back with me in the fall; my version of the coat and pants are likely to appear.
If you love embellishment, this dress, also from July 2012 Vogue, features lace and needlepoint detail.
