One of my favorite articles of clothing is outerwear. When looking through my closet, you are guaranteed to find several different types of jackets in all different materials and colors. I like to think that a jacket could complete your whole outfit and be a piece of clothing that you could revolve your entire ensemble around. The only thing that was missing out of my coat collection was a unique trench coat.
While looking through Prada’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear fashion show, there was no doubt in my mind that the coats shown were ones that would stand out in a crowd. This fashion show inspired me to go out and buy my own coat that could be its own fashion statement (as if I didn’t have enough already!). When I saw this tribal print coat that I’m wearing, I knew that I had to have it. It was the perfect amount of pattern to make a statement, and it was also heavy enough to wear in the cold New York temperatures.
I threw on my favorite black sweater to pair with my coat. The sweater is so versatile, so I thought it was the perfect match to make my coat really stand out. I simply wore a pair of ripped jeans that added a little texture to my outfit while still being plain enough to draw eyes to my coat. The boots that I chose to wear matched the colors in the pattern of my coat very well. To accessorize, I threw on a black and gold bubble statement necklace and a chunky gold bracelet, both of which are simple and classy.
Overall, I wanted my tribal trench coat to be the main aspect of my outfit and to stand out more than anything. In cold temperatures, it is very hard to look stylish while you’re trying to beat the wind. However, by making your coat the spotlight of your ensemble, it is easy to stay warm while still keeping up with the latest trends!
