What to Wear with a Red Coat
I’ve owned this red trench coat from Banana Republic for going on seven years and I’ve never worn it.
Crazy, I know, but at the time I was living in New York City and it felt too dressy and “formal” for my style. As an early 20 something, I was more into my North Face puffy coat, than a wool trench. P.S. I’m wearing Jefree Star Cosmetics in Redrum on the lips. I friggen LOVE this color. My review of these lipsticks is far overdue, but feel free to check out my Youtube Swatches HERE.
Lipstick aside, now that I work for myself, and live in the woods, trench coats like this one were MADE for this time of year. With the fall foliage in full effect, what better fall accessory than a red trench?
Yes, ladies, when you’re thinking about what to wear with a red trench coat, just refer back to the photos in this post. Think layers, and texture, and print! You can’t really tell in the photo, but I’m actually wearing forest green colored jeggings from The Gap (sold out on line so check your local stores). I didn’t even stop to think when I pulling this look for the blog, I just knew I wnated a cool fall vibe that would exude style. Also, FYI, when you throw on a pair of cute shades you instantly look cool. So when all else fails, wear shades.
