And while coats can be an expensive investment, if you are one to stick to classic outfits and a minimalist palette during the cooler months, a bright coat can easily been thrown on top with out clashing, making it a worthy splurge. Plus, if you’ve already got the aforementioned classic styles in your repertoire, why not branch out and add a statement-maker to your set? Trust us, the compliments will roll in as soon as you do.
