Colder temperatures and snowy weather can tend to make your wardrobe skew to the darker side, but the easiest way to inject color back into your winter looks is to add a colorful coat. Whether you choose a wintery white, playful pink, or sunny yellow, a bright-hued coat adds instant interest to your look. Even if you’re pairing it with neutrals or all-black underneath, the pop of color in your outerwear ensures your look is anything but boring.
If colorful outerwear intimidates you a bit, you can keep the rest of your outfit super simple—jeans and a black or white sweater will do the trick. Or you can go with an all-neutral outfit underneath your colorful coat, which always looks elevated and expensive. Then you can add whatever color you like on top without having to worry about clashing. If you’re ready to take your outfit to the next level, try adding a printed top or textured pieces like leather pants to the mix for an even cooler outfit.
