Wear it Right: Bold Coats

As winter winds down, some of us might be getting stuck in a fashion rut. Days are still dreary, and thoughts of spring fill our heads. This time in-between seasons can be extremely hard to dress for—but bright outwear is definitely the pick-me-up we’ve all been looking for. With these pieces you’ll be sure to stand out in that never-ending sea of neutrals.

At the Fall 2013 Marc Jacobs show, there were bright colors galore—especially when it came to coats. Take a cue from this runway look and choose a structured one in a bright purple hue. Underneath, create your own color-blocked combination to brighten up this look even more. Finish it off with a pop of oxblood in your accessories. A cute flat or satchel is a must!

In this street style look, a New York Fashion Week attendee paired a cobalt jacket with a black and white polka dot dress. Her winter white accessories help to balance out her opaque tights and dark sunnies. This look is super easy to recreate, and when warmer weather strikes ditch the tights to transition this look to spring
