In last week’s Friday faves I mentioned I got this gorgeous Anthro coat for a STEAL during their additional 30% off sale items promotion. I also mentioned that I was not a fan of how they styled the collar (sorry Anthro – most of the time you get it, but this time I think you missed the mark). I actually hadn’t seen it online before I saw it in store and the collar was unbuttoned on the hanger, which ended up being a good thing because I don’t think I would have considered buying it based on the photo online. I experimented a little in the dressing room and ended up styling it like this:
Maybe it’s just me, but I think wearing it this way is so much cuter than the strange oversized cowl neck look Anthro chose (but I still love you dearly, Anthro stylists – I really do). What attracted me to the coat* was that it looks like two pieces in one. Can you even tell that’s not a separate scarf?
I have been itching for a bright blue coat since I saw Zooey Deschanel wearing this amazing Kate Spade one on this season’s Christmas episode of New Girl. Plus it’s actually been cold enough here in SoCal to wear it! On a regular basis! Yay!
Are you into bright coats this year? Or are you more of a basic black kinda girl? I’ve always been big on neutral outerwear, but I think that’s officially changed.
