Winter Wear: Statement Coats







Outfit Details:
old beanie
Ann Taylor Windowpane Jacquard Coat and Ann Taylor collared keyhole shell (c/o Ann Taylor and currently 30% off)
Ban.do mini heart pin
old pink tights
Alberto Fermani boots
Quay "Kitti" cat eye sunglasses
Folli Follie K vintage satchel
MAC Candy Yum Yum hot pink lipstick

I have a thing for statement coats - mainly, because of the amount of time it cuts out of getting dressed, in the morning. It's the same reason I like a great day dress; putting together an outfit is really simple, when you only have to grab one garment. Statement coats are kind of similar. For example, I could wear a t-shirt and jeans under this black and white Ann Taylor coat and still look pulled together (and might do that, once it warms up). On this particular day, I skipped the t-shirt and jeans and went with pops of super bright pink and my trusty over the knee boots, because I love a modern take on mod. Actually, I love a literal interpretation of mod, too. It just depends on which day you catch me.

  4. This coat has such a gorgeous print! You're definitely right about it making a look seem put together. And the splashes of pink were a great idea.

  11. I'm never warm enough in NY winters with just a wool coat, so I've succumbed to the dreaded puffer. And since I knit and gravitate towards knitting scarves, cowls, and hats in bright colors, I've stuck with a black coat to showcase them. So, yes, I'm another NYer in a black puffer coat. You are putting me to shame!! :)

  25. So pretty! I wish I could rock a snazzier winter look. Sadly, I would freeze to death in ten minutes in Toronto's minus a billion temperatures of late.
