Add A Little Bright

My coat closet is packed to the brim, but full of dark colored jackets, coats, vests, fleeces, etc. Black and gray are the predominant colors in all of my outerwear pieces. That's why I've decided that I'm in dire need of some color injections in my Fall and Winter coats!



1. Madewell Alexa Chung for Madewell Shrimp Coat, 2. J.Crew Double Cloth Chesapeake Coat, 3. Zara Double Breasted Coat

I'm thinking it would be better to stick to a neutral bright tone since I'm just not used to wearing fun colored outerwear. What do you think? Are you on the bright-colored coat boat this season?

  1. We are on the same wavelength ~ I always gravitate to blacks, camels, and grays for my outerwear, but lately have been craving a coat in poppy red! I think red is a classic color that would have some longevity, not to mention is a fun pop of color :)

  2. I love those pops of color in a coat! Perfect for the dreary weather of winter. I tend to gravitate towards darker colored coats, but who says those have to be all we wear in the winter?

  6. I love the coats in the second pic. Since i just moved to nyc all i have are the basics when it comes to winter gear. Now you got me thinking about purchasing a colorful coat, it's always nice to inject some color in your wardrobe.

  8. I too tend to wear black and neutrals. I should definitely purchase a bright, fun colored coat, as it would be such a nice pop of color during the gloomy winter months. Love your coat choices - I am such a JCrew coat fan! xo

  14. I pretty much love all the Zara coats. They are so amazing. And I do love bright colors, but it's better to be safe with a neutral. You can pair it with so much more!
