What Would Blair Waldorf Do? Bright Coats

Saturday, January 12, 2013

I am usually an advocate for investing in neutral colored staples because they last longer season to season and are more wearable with a variety of different outfit combinations. However, a coat in a bright color or a jewel tone complements both neutrals and bright colors. I recently purchased this bright coat and patterned shift at a boutique in my hometown and I have worn both pieces numerous times since. The coat works especially well on its own with plain black tights and boots, and it's been fun dressing up with brooches, scarves, and gloves. In the wintertime, a coat is an essential piece of clothing, and therefore a great investment piece. In Gossip Girl, Blair sports a variety of brightly colored coats in several different episodes, and all are tailored fabulously and styled with scarves and cloche hats to bring out her own personal style. All that's missing in my picture is Ed Westwick. I think Chuck Bass would really complement my bright coat, no?
