The Statement Coat
---COAT, Prosper & Devine (similar here) - PANTS, Macys - SHIRT, Express (similar here) - SHOES, Steve Madden - EARRINGS M Renee Design --Have you ever worn an item of clothing and received so many compliments that it made you feel like a true fashion icon? I'm no Jackie Kennedy or Victoria Beckham but when wearing this fringe statement coat I absolutely feel like I should be on the cover of Vogue :) I talked about my love for fringe here and it continues with this statement coat.
Just like a statement necklace, statement earrings or statement shoes, a statement coat is the key to your winter wardrobe if you want to stand out in the crowd. Long, short, neutral or bright, a statement coat can come in any shape or size; but it always evokes pure fashion envy. When wearing a statement coat, it makes your outfit that much easier. Why? Because since your coat is the main attraction everything else can be simple and basic if you like. So, your basic jeans and a T shirt will go from ordinary to eye catching.
One of my favorite fashionistas is 94 year old Iris Apfel. Not only do we share a love for jewelry, but her style is so bold and in your face that she truly shows what it's like to go big or go home in fashion. Statement coats, jewelry and glasses are her thing and she is one of the most popular fashion figures today. What are me & Iris trying to tell you? Neutrals and basic colors and styles are great & essential, but there's always room in your closet to make a statement. The compliments, jaw dropping stares and questions you'll receive about where you shop will let you know you are on the right path to making a statement with your winter wardrobe.
Below are 6 of my favorite Statement Coats this season:
