Fashion Inspiration: 7 Statement Coats

20 Dec

What’s a great way to update your look with one simple move? A statement coat. This coat is an impactful tool to elevate your day-to-day look because it’s part of each and every outfit during the winter season.  A statement coat is the first thing people see when you make an entrance and the last thing they linger on upon farewell.  It does its job – it makes a statement and that statement is, “Yes, I know you’re jealous.”

Enjoy these seven great examples of statement coats and find your own way to leave an impression without saying a word.

The Mara Hoffman, bold black and white contrast print outshines any other color pairing to make a statement. |  Mackage is queen of edgy, unique outerwear. This version has a corset-like belt (a smidgen dominatrix-y) that offsets the feminine bow at the neck.  |  Top Shop gives you a very British-ized version of a trench-military look in neutral plaid.  |  Puff on this: not all puff coats have to look like a sleeping bag. Norma Kamali’s puff coat is sleek and stylish with a shawl collar and peplum style.

The Premium Tulip skirt coat is simple and is made in a rich, chocolate brown color. What makes the statement is the tulip skirt – an exaggerated hip that accentuates a nipped-in, lady like waist.  |  Try some animal print for a real head turning experience. Top Shop makes this vintage-slash-modern option with black and grey faux fur.  |  Playful features like the buttons and collar on this coat from On & On are statement enough. Add in the sumptuous “Chocolate & Coffee” name and you’ll want to snuggle yourself in this coat, no matter the occasion.
