The Red Coat

I love red coats. I always stop to admire them on shop racks in the fall/winter season, and I think they look wonderful against blacks and grays (amongst many other colors). Since I have lots of neutrals in my wardrobe, I love having a coat add a pop of color.

One of my favorite trenches is this Sportmax red trench which I bought in 2009. The cut and the flared bottom all spoke to me and I committed the sin of purchasing this jacket at full price. I especially love the silk lining even though it’s only me that sees it!

Another great perk of red coats is that they can still be worn well through spring and even summer – so really they are year round. I have a great weakness for coats and really need to stop buying them (though I just added another brightly colored one, which I hope to share with you soon). It’s been unseasonably cold here!
