While browsing Who What Wear’s daily dose of fashion reporting, I stumbled upon a story highlighting the use of punches of color in outerwear. In a sea of bland camel-colored trench coats and generic black jackets, it is comforting to see that fashionistas still like to take a walk on the wild side when it comes to implementing color into their winter wardrobe.
For those who are hesitant to rock a neon yellow wool coat, baby steps can be taken to experiment with winter color. A bright orange scarf worn on top of a black jacket is a simple way to ease color into your life. Although we often look to New Yorkers for fashion cues, all black ensembles are not necessarily ‘in vogue!’
Technicolor outerwear doesn’t have to break the bank. Although runway designers like Proenza Schouler and Diane von Furstenberg are showing every color of the rainbow in their recent collections, affordable retailers like H&M, Forever 21 and Old Navy are offering frugal consumers viable options.
Ditch your go-to winter coat and pick up a dazzling, colorful creation for this season!Tags: coat, color, DVF, jacket, neon, outerwear, proenza schouler, Rainbow
