‘Tis the season to be jolly, so why not throw on a jolly rancher coloured coat to keep your spirits bright, like this JCrew Majesty coat (top). Boring black and neutral tones are practical, but can also be dreary. The colours we wear so often reflect our moods, and we shouldn’t be feeling dark and gloomy, even if it is reflective of the weather!
The runways were feeling bright this season, both for men and women. Throwing on a colourful coat is a sure way to earn yourself some style snaps. The rest of your outfit can be neutral and you can let the coat be the focal piece to your look, or you can go bright in both aspects and create and eye catching ensemble. The possibilities are endless, and a colour coat gives you so many more options than you think it would.
Last year I picked up my first colourful coat, and it is now my favourite winter piece! Its a red skirted pea coat by Laundry. I thought I would have more difficulty dressing with this coat, worrying about colour combos, but it seems no matter how I wear or pair this piece, it always looks fabulous!
Your outfit underneath may be exciting or it may be more on the casual side, either way make it effortlessly chic by adding something sweet — check out how these stylish celebs have worked candy coloured coats into their wardrobe:
