Living in NYC during the winter its cold. Like really cold. Many times its soo cold New Yorkers tend to just wear black clothing. Every so often you will see someone with a colorful coat. Fashion rules are now being broken and wearing multi colored clothing is now acceptable all year round. For example wearing white jeans after Labor Day or wearing a lime green fur coat on a snow day.
I am a big fan of wearing color!!! Yellow trench coat, multi colored fur …you name it. Not only does it brighten up your entire outfit it can change your current mood to a more happier mood. Our favorite basic brand American Apparel is downsizing and is now having a hugs sale. I received an American Apparel plaid wool top coat as a Christmas gift and it reminded me of a coat I once had and worn all the time as a kid. After trying on this coat I instantly started to put outfits together. When wearing a colorful jacket try to keep your outfit to a minimum of 3 colors that are featured in the coat or wear neutral colors like denim, brown and/or grey. To add an extra touch, add a brooch or two. The brooch featured is actually my mother’s. I’ve been “borrowing it” for years!
