Rarely it’s what is on the outside that counts. Cream puffs, presents, a bottle of Advil, the goodness lies within. But when it comes to doing the lambada with old man winter, one can feel helpless and cover their outside with a New Kids on the Block sleeping bag if it means they’ll be warm. Umm obviously that is a hypothetical statement. Today is for my distressed damsels who are one 80s themed sleepover away from doing something they’ll regret. Taking cues from the tempting little sugary soldiers that line the check out counter, well constructed wool coats in hues that can be found in a bag of M&M’s or Skittles, will have you tasting the rainbow and then some.
Aside from the obvious part of brightening your wardrobe, mixing in a piece of outerwear of this magnitude will have an all around stylish effect on everything it comes in contact with. A basic long sleeve and casual denim come to life with the electrifying and elegant frame of a bold coat. Your work clothing will get an upgrade to professional status, and have rumors swirling you got a major raise… Choosing a number that focuses more on sleek design and less on bells and whistles will give you the confidence to pair it with an endless amount of looks without worrying if it’s too much. So if your fall/winter closet is begging for a little pick me up, go for the candy coating this time, it’s the sugar rush that every outfit demands.
