Being from Arizona, I have recently been on the search for a winter coat (having never really owned one). The two most popular styles I see on the streets of Paris are these:
Not only are these most popular among women, their children are also sporting very similar styles, almost always in black or camel. What is it about cold weather that make people forget there is a whole rainbow of color to choose from? Yes, black goes with everything, but these winter outfits are seriously lacking color.
If you’re like me, you are already upset because few people get to see the cute outfit UNDER your coat, so why not make your coat a statement of its own? Pastels, baggy boyfriend style, crazy patterns; there are so many ways to make your top layer less dreary. I have searched high and low and here are some of my favorite options.
For those of you who just cannot imagine steering away from black, here are some basics with youthful designs.
Take back your mature, feminine style and replace that black parka with the pop of color everyone needs on a winter day.
