I'm Done With Boring Outerwear—13 Statement Coat 'Fits I'll Be Living In Instead

Don't get me wrong—I'm all for a basic black or camel-colored coat, but there's something about a fresh statement piece that instantly lifts my mood, especially in the dreary winter months. It's also an easy way to finish off an outfit with minimal thinking required. If you've ever looked at a vibrant-hued coat on the runway and thought "Can I pull that off?", we're here to tell you that yes, you can, and we've got chock-full of outfit formulas for you to try out. 

I love looking towards fashion girls on Instagram for fashion inspiration, and when it came to out-of-the-box coats, they delivered. From neon-colored trenches to shearling collars, there's plenty of coat outfits that will have you standing out this season.

If you're not willing to go all out with the faux-fur, go with a collar to still stay trendy but on a more subtle level.

If there's a statement coat to buy this season, it's a Stand Studio one. With this piece, you won't need to think about much else when it comes to your outfit. It pairs well wth a pair of skinny jeans and a furry bucket hat.
