Spring is here and we are starting to see more and more sun. And, of course, with my love for neutrals and grays I wanted to brighten things up with a statement red coat. No matter how neutral your daily outfits are, a statement piece like that will surely bring a smile to your face. Red, or any bright shade, immediately gets you noticed in the crowd and adds a lot of personality to your look.
If you are looking for interesting pieces that would help you to stand out and not make a big hole in your budget – ZARA is the way to go! It’s a very democratic brand that is always on trend. The quality is good, price is affordable, and they add new products on a weekly bases. I personally find ZARA coat and jacket collections exceptional. One of my favorite lines is “Handmade” but I like “Zara Basics”, as well. The only downside is that collections sell out quickly not giving you much time to ponder and hesitate.
The coat I’m wearing was purchased about 2 weeks ago and it has sold out almost immediately. However, they have very similar coats in different colors and textures. See below in “What I’m wearing section” for links. I paired the coat with navy blue pants, bag, and shoes to compliment the bright red shade. White blouse was a great neutral element that added freshness to the look. As always, my outfits are office friendly but I can easily see myself wearing it after office hours.
Shine bright and don’t be afraid of colors!
What I’m wearing: Zara coat, similar here and here; BCBG shirt; Zara pants; 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli bag or a budget option here; Michael Kors shoes
