Top Definition
Someone who rides off the coat tails of someone else to climb the 'proverbial' ladder - career, social, etc.
A coat-tailer is someone who only dates/marries or hangs around people of a certain status, (ie. salary, profession, social standing), who aspires to get the good life without earning it themselves.
