Color me bright


Statement pieces are not new in any woman’s closet. From chunky necklaces or a bright shoe making something plain into a unique outfit is ideal. But more recently than accessories, the colored coat has made a splash in magazines, blogs, and on celebrities’ backs. The red carpet has been covered in statement coats from Rihanna to Cara Delevingne sporting the colorful trend. It is not a hard thing to wear. Even retailers like J Crew or Top Shop sell them at moderate prices. Any simple outfit can be dressed up. For chillier nights up town, pairing a black dress with tights, booties, and a colored statement coat would be an easy outfit. Or, just getting lunch in a pair of jeans, riding boots and a colored coat would work just as well. They can be paired with patterns or even solids, color blocking. They are a great statement piece to have in anyone’s closet.
