3 Reasons To Have A Statement Coat in Your Wardrobe

The holidays are over and we are settling into a new year. You may be looking ahead and dreaming of spring now, but we’ve still got plenty of winter left. A coat is a necessary item for winter, so instead of settling for a basic ho-hum grey or black coat, consider these three reasons to have a statement coat in your wardrobe.

You may have the best outfit ever, but if you have to wear a coat to get from point A to point B, or to participate in an activity given that Covid has driven us outdoors, your great outfit is covered up. Since your outfit is covered up, you may as well make your coat the star feature.

A great statement coat can elevate any outfit. I’m in an outfit of leggings, knit top and sneakers but who would notice given this fabulous leopard coat? No need to worry about what’s underneath with a statement coat.

A bright colored coat or a fun pattern can boost your mood when you need it the most during the winter. If you aren’t one for lots of color, having a bright coat can help you add some color to your style without being committed to the color all day.

A few things about this coat I’m wearing- it’s mostly polyester and just a little wool. It’s great as a fun layer for milder climates but I doubt it alone would keep you warm if you live in a colder climate. It only has one button as a closure. It could still be a fabulous topper if you add more layers underneath. It’s lightweight and comfortable.
