Looking for some fabulous ways to wear the bright coat in spring? Check out these fabulous ideas on exactly how to wear it with style.
When it comes to bright coats, Creative Fashion will never fall short of inspiring you how to wear one. Case in point, the fun ways to wear a bright colored coat to the street. But for spring, let us take a look at the ways five fashion bloggers are sporting a vibrant topper.
There are three elements in styling a colored coat – first, the color is already bold, to make the most of it, pair it with dark colors. Second, if you want to tone down the boldness of your coat, pair it with equally bold pieces especially for under layering + shoes. Third, if you plan to dress it down, go comfy by layering it with casual pieces.

1. Ways to Wear the Bright Coat in Spring: Pink Coat with Navy Blue
I really love the way a bright pink coat float out against the dark. The wearer also did a smart move by creating a dark tonal under layer, from her blouse down to her pants and shoes, which made her look even taller. This is a perfect example of how to make the bright coat do the talking for you.
2. Power Red Coat with Houndstooth
A houndstooth print dress is already bold, but by throwing over it a bold red coat, the bold statement is being neutralized, which is a good thing. By keeping everything other than the coat neutral in black, you create a totally classy look.
3. Ways to Wear the Bright Coat in Spring: Bright Yellow Coat with Tartan Plaid
For a casual outdoor stroll, try teaming a banana yellow coat with a thick tartan scarf, some denim under layer, and comfy sneakers.
4. Bright Red Coat with All-White
Here´s a good example of the principle of contrast well played. The wearer wore a super skinny high waist pants (dig for an acid wash if you can) and contrasted it with a power red oversized coat. Her white top is also strategic because it made her coat radiate. Of course, high heels are a must.
5. Ways to Wear the Bright Coat in Spring: Bright Yellow Coat with Black Leggings
This look is perfect for early springs when the weather is still cola. Layer your lovely yellow coat with black leggings. Better yet, you can layer under the coat an all-black look which includes a black rib turtleneck sweater and black ankle boots.
Another quick way to inject color to your jogger get-up is by throwing over a bright coat. As you can see on the wearer, she teams her gray joggers with blue crop top and blue pumps, and then wore a yellow unbuttoned coat on top.
6. Bright Red Coat with Metallic Pieces
I find the red coat one of the most versatile colored toppers. It´s not only that it´s bold, but the rich red can mix well with other colors from dark to light hues. Try a red single-breasted coat with metallic pieces such as a silver glossy sweater and a glossy bronze pleated skirt for a statement-bomb party look.
7. Ways to Wear the Bright Coat in Spring: Casual Cool in Yellow Coat and Denim Skirt
It doesn´t matter what´s the shade of yellow you have for your coat, layer it over a wine, a marsala or a berry hued sweater and finish up with some denim – skirt or pants. You´ll get a rich complementary look.
8. Pink Wool Coat for the Street
This outfit conveys an effortless way to work with tonal pieces. You start with the pink long coat; you pick printed pieces such as a top or a dress and a scarf in colors that tone in with the pink topper. You add solid accessories such as a red clutch and some red shoes, and then break the colors with a neutral denim bottom.
9. Ways to Wear the Bright Coat in Spring: Bold Coat on Bold Dress
Take two solid colors, one for your coat and one for your dress, and then layer them. Remember the rule of length, an inch difference between the hems. The colors of your shoes and bag should be chic complementary as well.
10. Beige Coat on Classic Black and White
Monochrome will continue to make a statement in spring. If you don´t want to overwhelm your black and white combo with bright colors, add a beige coat and some neutral leopard print heels.
11. Ways to Wear the Bright Coat in Spring: Seafoam Colored Coat for Evening Party
Contrasting is a style strategy that is not maximized by many women. Suppose you have a rather muted combination, pull it up together with a surprising colored coverup such as a mint long coat!
12. Bright Robe Coat for Everyday Casual
There are days when you don´t feel like styling, those days seriously exist. Don´t worry, you´re free to wear a relax mix, think plain t-shirt, pajamas or a long midi skirt, and then throw over a chic colored robe coat. Wear some oxford shoes to add an accent.
13. Ways to Wear the Bright Coat in Spring: Ways to Wear the Bright Coat in Spring: The Orange Pea Coat
No matter how much I dread winter and hate the bone-cracking coldness, everything is offset with with the thought that soon, spring will arive and I´ll get to wear pretty coats, especially the perennially chic bright-colored coats, with more freedom and creativity.
Can you blame me? I was born this way, a big fan of bright colors! But I´m sure I´m not alone. Girls just love colors – have you gotten over your pink adoration yet? Oh well, here are the best of the best bright colored coats for winter. They look their best if paired with black, gray, and other neutral colors.
An orange pea coat looks perfect with a pair of dark blue skinny jeans and dark riding boots. Because it´s a short coat, it makes your legs longer, adding length to your silhouette. I suggest opting for riding boots with heels.
14. Ways to Wear the Bright Coat in Spring: The Timeless Blue Coat
A very high-end single breasted wool coat in Helio blue is something not a lot of us can afford. But it´s seriously a great investment. Worn with a mini dress to a party or as a coverup to a casual smart jeans look, you´re always dressed up. Plus I must add, single breasted coats just make you look taller.
15. Red Blazer Coat with a Simple Dark T-Shirt and Jeans
What makes this classic silhouette gorgeous other than it´s the most affordable bright coat in this list, is that it has a pair of notched collar, which fades into the single-button placket. You´d quickly think it´s another single breasted coat, but it´s not. The welt pockets which accent the front with an angled tier depicting a somewhat illusion waistcoat, are the next good things.
16. Neon Green Coat Clashed with Blue
I´ve heard that French people don´t wear green, but what about a neon green? Green isn´t my color too but I´m warming towards it. However, if it´s a neon green coat that´s in question, it´s definitely a “yes”! The color really comes out once teamed with black and yet the idea is to add another striking color to balance the attention and not focussed only on the coat. A blue skirt and a blue clutch, in addition to a black turtleneck and black tights, are perfect items to complete the look.
17. Red Colored Coat with Black Accessories
I wore a heavy-layered red trench coat in winter. But for fall and spring, it´s great to wear your red colored coat as a dress with bare legs and a pair of sexy black heels as seen here on Jessica Chastain.
18. Pink Colored Coat as a Cape
If you can´t find the perfect purple coat, a pink colored coat also works for this street outfit idea. Wear your pink coat as a cape over a black (trousers) suit. Opt for a pink print top to layer under your suit. The peak of the print matching your bright cape is super chic. Add black accessories – pumps, handbag, and sunglasses.
19. Orange Colored Coat with Yellow Print Dress
If you love colors as much as Solange Knowles, then the outfit she was seen wearing outside David Letterman’s show must inspire you. She wore a gorgeous orange coat over a canary yellow dress with matching pumps and clutch. In mimicking this look, you can create some variations too, such as choosing a bright yellow floral dress instead of a yellow monochrome, and swapping a yellow clutch for an ivory lace.
Create a spring-like environment this winter through your coats, opt for upbeat, colored wool blend trench coats. Attractive colored coats beat the dullness of winter and brightens up your chilly, grayish days. Worn over a dress or layered over sweaters and skinny jeans, a trench coat is very versatile piece. There are many good quality eye candy colored trenches out there that are very affordable, at less than $100 and with a little research, you´ll find the perfect outerwear to dress you well this season.
20. Pink Women Wool Blends Coat
This light pink trench coat is truly gorgeous, beautifully sewn, fully lined, and perfectly warm. It´s color is nothing childish but simply a true sweet pink. It looks great as a coverup for an equally gorgeous Chartreuse dress. Layer with black tights to keep your legs warm as well, and slip into the perfect black pumps. If the polka dot bow isn´t your thing, don´t worry for it is easily removed. The coat looks great with or without a bow.
21. Yellow Slim Trench Winter Coat
Because yellow looks so good with black, I highly recommend wearing this yellow winter trench coat with black, whether it´s a dress, jeans, or boots. But I loved seeing this trench worn over a tangerine sweater which is a color complement, then teamed with black skinny jeans and leopard pumps. I really think they´re perfect together.
22. Rose Pink Trench Coat
White pants works for winter too so feel comfortable wearing them with this rose-pink trench coat. Rose is great to colorblock a purple piece, especially light purple, so I suggest wearing under it a purple turtleneck, white jeans, and amber brown tall boots. For this look, black boots would look too heavy and dominant, so make sure to go for light-colored boots if you´re creating bright colorblocking for this trench coat.
