The Statement Coat

October 24, 2015

Cobalt blue street style

Regardless of your style, I believe everyone should consider investing in a statement coat. When I say "statement" I mean a noticeable color, length and fabric. I was very fortunate to find this coat last Winter in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The coat is vintage (mint condition), beautifully made and it came with a reasonable price tag. I knew right away, it was made for me. The length, the color and the fabric where just right for my emotional style.
I recently saw a very similar style in the pages of Instyle magazine (of course) and it was styled with a pair of burgundy pants (done it before) and also they styled it with a leather mini-skirt. I haven't worn this particular coat with a mini-skirt, but I had with a midi-skirt. So this time, I decided to wear it the way they suggested in the magazine, however instead of a black skirt, I wore a red one for a more striking color-block effect. I paired this look with two different shoes due to two different type of events I was going to that day. During the day time, I was more comfortable wearing this combo with a pair of brogues to make it more easy and casual, but for night time (dinner and drinks with friends) I decided to add another feminine touch by wearing it with a pair of classic round toe stilettos.

Independientemente de nuestro estilo, yo pienso que todas deberíamos de tener en nuestro armario tan siquiera un abrigo llamativo. Yo fui muy afortunada en encontrar esta preciosidad de abrigo en una tienda de vendimia en Michigan. Lo encontré en una condición como nueva y sin mucho esfuerzo me pude dar cuenta de su calidad. 
Recientemente miré en la revista Instyle (por supuesto) un abrigo similar emparejado con pantalones de rojo vino y también con una falda de cuero negro. Hace unos meses atrás me puse este abrigo con pantalones de color borgoña pero nunca con una minifalda de cuero. Por eso en esta oportunidad inspirada por la sugerencia de la revista, me decidí ponerme el abrigo con una falda de cuero, pero envés de una negra me puse una roja. Por el día me puse zapatillas varoniles para sentirme lo suficientemente cómoda, y por la noche para salir con mis amigos me puse tacones elegantes.
