That Time I Wore a Statement Coat
February 9th, 2017
Like Wednesday says, “I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color.”
That’s why it was so surprising to me that I fell for a statement coat that — quelle horreur! — is multicolored. But you can’t control what (or who) you fall in love with, right?
To my delight, this coat is a steal at around $50. The quality? Not amazing (for that price, I wasn’t expecting much) but that’s what I love about trend items — you only pay a small price because you know you’ll cycle it out of your wardrobe in a season. Is this a staple? No. But like a poorly judged one-night stand, it’ll sure be a lot of fun!
I love the way this colorful coat looks with high-rise jeans, like this Madewell pair (on sale, btw!), but I also want to try it with leather pants and a fun printed frock for an eclectic statement. The coat is equally chic worn on the shoulders, perhaps over a voluminous sweater and tights.
While the trend may not last long, I can’t wait to rock this coat until summer! xo
