leopard print coat

Your coat is the clothing item people see probably more than any other in the winter (especially if you’re outside) so why opt for a boring basic? Instead of lamenting the fact that your outerwear is covering up your cute outfit, make your outerwear the cute outfit. How? By rocking a statement coat this season.

The statement coat is one of the best things to ever happen to winter fashion. Now, instead of layering an unexciting outerwear option over your look, you can make a stylish splash as soon as you step out the door. Bold plaids, leopard print, bright colors, and dramatic textures are all on offer currently, ready to upgrade your winter coat game from basic to bangin’. The added bonus? You’ll look totally pulled together even if your cold weather outfit underneath is pretty simple (think a black turtleneck and jeans). It’s the ultimate one-and-done winter fashion item.

If you’re ready to turn things up a notch this season, we’ve got what you’re looking for. Scroll on to check out the statement coats that have us hoping this winter is a long one.

This lightweight plaid coat is heavy on style. The chic menswear-inspired print is neutral enough to work with pretty much any color palette but still makes a major statement.
