The coat is the stand out wardrobe must have of the season and shows its versatility in an eclectic assortment of colors and styles. Vibrant colors of yellow and turquoise and muted tones of blush pink lend themselves to every silhouette imaginable.

No longer relegated to being just outerwear, the coat is now an integral part of the ensemble.

Trench Coats

The trench coat has staked its claim as the coat trend of the season. It proves its versatility with a variety of colors ranging from tan, to olive green, to bright orange and details ranging from belted, to double breasted buttons and military inspired. A double breasted trench draping the shoulders adds a cool edge to a menswear inspired pant suit. The neutral color of a traditional, tan colored trench coat creates the perfect canvas for adding a pop of color and accessorizing with bright red boots. A military inspired trench worn over a full floral skirt creates a strong, yet feminine look.

Oversized Coats

The oversized coat takes center stage in an assortment of fabrications and silhouettes, from military inspired to houndstooth to herringbone. Instantly elevate denim by pairing jeans with an oversized coat and loafers, for a casual, yet polished look. An olive, military inspired, oversized coat adds unexpected edge to a mock neck cream dress. Pairing a fitted white top and black pants with a cafe’ au lait houndstooth oversized coat adds balance to the dramatic silhouette. The exaggerated shape of an oversized black and white herringbone coat instantly updates black wide legged pants.

Bright Colors

Coats are the main attraction this season and can be seen in a variety of styles and silhouettes. Their one common denominator is color. The color palettes run the gamut from muted, ultra-feminine, delicate blush hues, to richly saturated pigments of turquoise, vibrant yellow and fire engine red. Create maximum style impact by wearing vivid colored coats open and pairing with an equally vibrant ensemble. For a more subtle effect, pair soft, dusky pink coats with jeans and ladylike, delicate lace tops.
