Welcome to winter, the drab-weathered time of year when all of our best outfits are covered up by a very warm, albeit necessary, coat. Here’s the thing about cold-weather dressing, though: While there is a right time and place to bundle up in your usual black puffer this season, allow me to make a strong case for making a statement in one of this season’s best red coats. Owning a brightly colored jacket will honestly change the way you feel when the winter weather makes everything look like one bleak shade of gray.
Take it from me—my closet can effectively be broken down into two categories. There are the basic pieces that I throw on when I have no idea what to wear, and then there are the ones that I am, to put it mildly, obsessed with. They’re the types of items that earn me a bevy of compliments every single time I put them on or post about them on Instagram, and very few pieces have garnered as much praise as my signature red coat does.
