I adore the versatility of technicolor coats and how their brightness contrasts the graying, somewhat dull environment. In today´s outfit post, I wore my beloved red trench coat paired with chocolate tights, brown boots, pink pullover, black tube scarf and gloves. My favorite accent to this look is the chic, leopard-print hat.
The trench isn´t thick enough for a -1°C so I layered it up with two pull-overs, one over the other beneath the coat. My tights are already thick and yet I still wore a stretchable leg warmer tights under it. I´m not a fan of cold weather.
In planning for this outfit, I started with the coat. Its color is already a statement so I wanted to make sure it stands out by keeping most of the pieces neutral. I love the peek of fuchsia under the coat, it creates a smooth transition from the black tube scarf to the red trench. Also, to blend the leopard hat with the look, I went for light brown boots. The boots, with their color palette, complement both the hat the chocolate tights.
So tell me Creative fashionistas, are you a fan of bright coats? How would you style a red trench coat for cold days? What do you think of my leopard-print hat as the main accent to the look?
I can’t believe it’s so cold over there. Lovely classic colors and prints in your outfit.
Stunning look! I love a bright coat on a cold, dull winter’s day. x

Gorgeous outfit, Glee! It stands out in your fall backdrop. Just don’t have the chance to wear such here. I love your leopard-print hat the most.

It certainly makes you stick out from the drab background of oncoming winter.

you really know how to rock a trench coat. i love everything about this ensemble.
Gorgeous coat, though I admit I can’t stop staring at those boots (I want them haha). I haven’t been able to get my hands on any bright coats for winter, unfortunately, though my fall-to-winter jacket does have a bright pink stripe on the inside 😀
