Outerwear and more specifically coats in cooler weather is as important or more than important than what you wear underneath it. Do you know why? Well, it’s the first thing that people see and we all know that first impressions often make lasting impressions. Plus, you don’t want your outerwear to be so jacked up that it takes away from your fab outfit underneath; if anything, you want your outerwear to complement the swag of what you wear underneath it.
Besides complementing the outfit underneath it and making great impressions, rocking a bomb coat just elevates your overall aura. I don’t know about y’all, but when I am rocking some of my favorite coats I feel ‘extra’ (in a good way) and confident. Wrap coats are my absolute favorite for the moment. They are super chic and functional and they look great dressed up or down.
Wear it Unapologetically
Like I mentioned before, one of the cool things about wrap coats is that they are super easy. I often wear mine to work, out for evening events, and to run errands. You can wear them as your statement piece as well; wearing the coat as a dress with over-the-knee heeled boots would be a great look for the winter. I decided to wear mine to run errands below. I paired my coat with jeans, booties, a white t-shirt and wide brimmed hat. This made for a super comfortable and warm outfit to run errands in.
