Trend Report: The Pink Coat Takes Over Fashion Week

With more street cred than A$AP Rocky, the pink coat is this season’s must-have piece.

  • 1 of 23

    On day two of New York Fashion Week, it was already clear: pink coats (of both the pastel and neon varieties) are the outerwear du jour of the stylish set. And not surprisingly, the trend—which was also big on the S/S 14 runways—is finding its ways into the celebrity style realm, too. From Kate Bosworth to Aimee Song of Song of Style, here’s how to incorporate the piece into your everyday wardrobe. Sorry Gretchen Wieners, but pink isn’t only worn on Wednesday anymore.

    A white-on-white combo ensured the Mad Men actress’ pastel pink Rochas coat (which is sadly sold out) remained the focal point of her look.

    A matching bubblegum pink Carven coat and Miu Miu Leather Bag (price upon request, 310.247.2227) perfectly speak to the Vogue Japan Editor-At-Large’s bold sensibilities.
