It's no secret that our coats get the most attention during the winter time - sometimes, our actual outfits never even get to see the light of day. Since coats are the star of the show for our winter looks, it's safe to say that vibrant coats are essential during this season if you still want to make a fashion statement!
Cheetah - Animal Print
Need I say more?
If you're looking to make a statement with nothing but your winter coat, I highly suggest wearing an animal print one - they always stand out among the crowd and they can dress up any outfit!
Faux fur is also a great material to search for in coats because they're not only going to keep you warm all day, but it's amongst the most comfortable coat materials out there.
I recommend pairing your animal print coats with a black look underneath to make sure your animal print pops - however, if you're going to be inside somewhere warm and will be taking off your coat, you could always wear a statement top or dress that's hidden under your coat!
This jacket is probably in my top 3 favorites in my collection - it also happens to be thrifted (and gifted to me by one of my friends who is an amazing stylist as well!).
When styling color patterns such as this one pictured above, I always love to pair the jacket with a neutral outfit and accessories that match the colors of the jacket; this way, you're making the jacket's colors stand out, as well as pulling together the whole look.
Pop of Color
Lastly, one of the easiest coat styles to find that will make a statement, is probably going to be colors that are a bright pop of color.
The coat pictured above also happens to be thrifted and created with pink faux fur, making it the coat of my dreams! This coat goes with me everywhere - I take it travelling with me because it keeps me warm, cozy, and dresses up the sweatpants that I'm usually wearing.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need
