Fall 2011 Coats: Color, Cut, Cool

15 Apr

Here it is as promised: The coat post!

For fall it is all about what is on top. Get a coat with a great cut. Add in some extras. And pick a color that says “Hhhheeeeelllloooooooo” Make sure people see you coming. But above all make sure they WANT to see you coming.

Color and texture have parked their statements all year long for 2011 and the coat is the best item to make use of and make your mark. A great coat can be worn over and over… no matter how memorable (or unmemorable) it is.

Additionally,  apparently PETA is taking a nap this year so go for fur. Go for feathers. Go for suede.

Forget boring. Embrace loud. But keep it classy. And keep it colorful.
