ALL IN THE DETAILS: Paint The Town Red

Winter lasts for what seems like forever here in Rhode Island. With the cold weather comes the lack of desire to dress up day after day for classes. What is worse than trucking across campus through the snow to make your class? That is why the perfect way to “dress up” for classes this winter is to have a stand out coat that makes any outfit pop.

If your outerwear is trendy and fun, you will look put together and ready for every cold winter day. My favorite coat trend this season is adding a colorful jacket—the instant stand out from the usual black long coats we see all over campus.

This Fashionista chose a staple red coat to complete her outfits. As you can see in her pictures, the coat quickly added a chic look to a casual everyday outfit. The coat, which you can find at J.Crew, is added to an all-black ensemble. This Fashionista pairs the coat with a textured sweater from Theory and black leggings with black booties from Steve Madden. She accessories her look with a long necklace and bracelets to match the gold zippers on her jacket.

How To: A staple like this jacket can be added to anything to make your outfit, whether you are going to class or out on the town. Treat the color of your jacket as a neutral and pair everything with it. Red is a fun color to wear and is a good complement to most colors.
