As the polar vortex tightens its grip, we need to reach for coats that will keep us toasty and, well, brighten our mood. The best way to do this? Make our own standout toppers in wool fabric we love.
Right now, the most luxurious designers are all about bright saturated colors—but we can create our own unique designs for a fraction of the price. Take cues from this Nina Ricci gemstone green coat with a dainty Peter Pan collar juxtaposed against sporty gathered cuffs. If you can’t decide on a single bold hue, try Fausto Puglisi’s two new takes on color-blocking here and here. Pretty playful, right?
If you’re not feeling the intense purples, oranges and reds, try having a little fun with texture instead. Wool boucle is not only visually appeasing, it’s ultra-cozy for these brisk days and nights. Even better? It’s all the rage right now. This grey Kaliko creation is a girly retro dream while this black Isabel Marant piece is sharp and sophisticated but oh-so-cuddly. Which statement coat idea suits your style personality best?
