Style Obsession: Statement Coats

There's an inescapable chill in the air, and it's making us all sacrifice a little more of our style each day. Winter is without a doubt the most difficult season to stay fashionable in. With bone-chilling winds and temperatures dropping below freezing, looking cute can instantly drop a few places on our priority list.  Luckily, there is a simple solution to this problem: A statement coat.

Statement coats are outerwear that grab the attention of others, so much so that you pop! when you enter the scene. They can be brightly colored, feature a unique pattern, or include intricate detailing like peplum, pleating, or structured collars. Statement coats break out of the mold of traditional neutral-colored toppers, and add an extra helping of style to your winter wonderland look. Here are 5 statement coats I have been eyeing lately:
