Styling Tips For Statement Coats

We all have our workhorse winter outerwear—a black puffer or a gray wool coat that does most of the heavy sartorial lifting. To complement its rotation, however, we propose adding a statement piece to your wardrobe. It will break up the monotony and add a little excitement to cold weekday mornings. So, we curated a variety of outfit ideas that invite you to consider various textures, silhouettes, colors, and materials in your outerwear selection—it’s time. Whether you’re opting for a bold color or avant-garde shape, we encourage you to be daring, be bold, and lean into that statement wear. ‘Tis the season, after all.
