Wrapped Up in Color

As the owner of a shamrock green coat myself, I personally attest to the wonders of a statement coat. When it’s cold out people aren’t able to see that really cute dress you have on or what have you, but what they can see is your coat.

Sure, wearing a large piece of bright material can be scary. If that’s the case for you, choose a pastel colored coat or one with an interesting pattern. Just mixing it up from the basic black or grey coat will make you stand out from the crowd.

I mean, isn’t that what fashion is all about–being able to stand out in a crowd?

Wednesday Want: Windowpane Car Coat

The windowpane style of this coat is definitely unique and can easily be paired with other patterns as well. I’d love to see how Tartan plaid or stripes would look paired with this coat.

I also love the elongated lapels of this coat. They really lengthen the torso and don’t make that area seems so bulky like other coats do.

ASOS Quilted Blanket Jacket

ASOS Quilted Blanket Jacket

I honestly love coats and jackets that just wrap around you–in a way, it’s like they’re cuddling you.

This jacket, in particular, is not only cozy but gorgeously colored and designed. I’d also love to belt it to make even more of a statement.

What type of jackets/coats are you lusting after?
