Five Reasons to Wear Bright Colored Coats This Fall




Last week seriously kicked my butt. To where I couldn’t even get cranking on blogging. So I took a week off and my friend and I went out to the city and chilled instead. But I’m happy to be feeling more settled into the busy work life again. I’d say I missed everyone but you already know that. I'll say it anyhow.
 I missed the heck outta y'all! 

At the risk of sounding so cliche I have to say it’s hard to believe but Fall and ultimately Winter are around the corner. Last weekend marked the unofficial end of Summer and while Sumer is gradually winding down I'm all wound up and expressing myself in this bolder than life oversized coat. Luckily San Fran doesn’t get quite as cold. It does get cold enough for me however, considering I am usually freezing even in the mildest of temperatures. So I take ‘coating up' very seriously as you can imagine. 

While I like to embrace darks in tune with the season, I also like to infuse colors into my Fall/Winter wardrobe. Hey, there's no reason for us to limit our love for bright colors to Summer time. In other words, there's no end in sight for brights regardless of the season. Just being me and like I always say, I'm not rounding out my edges or I'll lose my edge, Ha!

What better way to keep my love for colors alive while staying cuddled up and cozy than with a bold topper. Who’s with me? These coats also have a tendency to be playful and I am all for ‘it’s not that serious’ anyhow. Nothing ever is. 

So here are five reasons I wear (and so should you) bright toppers in the cold months. These are pretty self explanatory and don’t need further elaboration.

1. I love colors and what better than a bright coat to give your mood a much needed boost in the dull Fall days

2. Blacks and dark colors generally could come across as basic sometimes. Break away from the crowd by wearing something that’s a surefire way for you to stand out.

3. A bright coat totally elevates any style even paired with the most basic things, in my case a simple pencil skirt with a wild high slit and a ruffle bandeau.

4. Creates a major outfit envy for peeps around. I’d run out of fingers if I tried to count how many people complimented my coat. I even got an offer to buy it on the spot. My reply was a very polite heck no, but here's my card and a link to purchase will be on my blog. #NewReader :)

5. A bright coat will have you looking far from boring. Strutting your stuff at any of the Fashion weeks? Be rest assured you'll be spotted from 10 miles away by street style photographers.

What ever your reason (1-5) for embracing bright toppers in the cold months, you’d love their unmatched versatility. What can’t you style them with is the real question here. Paired with shorts and thigh high boots, leggings and sneakers, skinny jeans tucked into boots, flare pants and even skirts and dresses, these coats will stay kick ass and you’d be making a statement each time. 

Seasoned with a boater hat, a gold /black belt and studded heels, this look is perfect for Fall. I love the slouchy oversize silhouette of this fab coat that totally brought my outfit to life.

Are you sold on this look? Your thoughts?
Me?
I was freeeeezing in San Fran I kid you not!!!
Chilly days are here and I’m definitely embracing bright toppers to keep me warm.

  2. you look ravishing darling! That black two piece looks amazing on you...love how you paired it with those killer heels. Such an attactive and feminine look. The bright coloured coat is icing on the cake, it is very stylish and certainly eye-catching. I'm not surprised that the compliments were flying your way, you surely deserve all of them. You are so gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.

    Your five reasons to wear a bright coloured coat in Autumn/Winter are very much to my liking. I love bright colours and I especially love to wear them once it gets cold because they warm my heart!!!! Well, science will tell us that some colours can actually warm us because they do create that sensation of warmth in our heads. So, when it gets cold I put on some lovely colours to improve my mood.

    I do like these images. You seem very happy and radiant...and I'm happy to hear you always find reasons to smile about. we must not let life kick us down:):)

  6. Sometimes ones needs to get away for sometime and recharge , so yea i've missed you too!!. I can not believe fall season is just around the corner and i really don't want to be stuck wearing gray,black,navy blue ,maroon and dull colours. It will be nice to incorporate some bright colours into my outfits for This Autumn. I love what you did with the all black outfit ,pairing it with the orange coat ,so fab and chic not to mention the flawless heels. You look amazing and hope you are having a great weekend.
