9 Head-Turning Statement Coats You Should Be Rockin' This Winter

The Beauty Closet - Home Page

Great style is all about making a statement and for the fall and winter season, the statement is all about outerwear.


Outerwear is arguably the reason we get so excited about bundling up and adding layers to our everyday looks during the colder seasons. But what's the apple of most of our aesthetic eyes? The statement winter coat.

From faux fur and fatigue to the classic black or khaki trench, donning a winter statement coat will have you owning the streets of your city like a model does a runway. As a native New Yorker, the winters can be brutal so investing in high quality, inexpensive coats that keep me warm is really important to me.

Read on to check out how I style some of my favorite winter statement coats.

1. A White Coat

White is one of those colors you can never go wrong with. White coats are one-part chic, one-part glam. With this wardrobe addition, you instantly add an air of sophistication to any look. I snagged this Mugler coat for an easy transition from a casual outing to a business meeting in style.

2. A Camo Jacket or Overcoat

A camo jacket or overcoat is perfect for adding a little edge and pattern to an every day look. Especially for my all-black everything lovers. You could layer with a stylish hoodie underneath or a bigger coat over it. It can also be worn alone during warmer days. Jackets with an oversize fit help make the coat a more versatile staple in your closet.

3. A Pop Of Color

There's no better way to be a show-stopper than to wear a bold color. In a sea of neutrals, make a statement with some color. Blue, mustard, and red are all fixture statement colors during the winter season.

4. A Textured Coat

I love to have at least one really textured coat in my closet to add spice and dimension to my outfits.

5. A Wool Gray Coat

Gray is that neutral color that can be rocked with anything. To keep a classic winter color modern, keep the shape interesting with a dope neckline. Layering the coat with a similar colored cardigan is a great way to add texture.

6. A Polyester Wool Blend Cream Coat

Upping the ante in your styling choices by going for a monochromatic look is not only on-trend, but when done well, is instantly luxe. I like to pair this H&M wool number with a similar color hat to add flare to any outfit.

7. A Basic Black Wool Coat

It's called a classic for a reason. To add impact to the classic black winter coat look, opt for a well-tailored option that offers something different than the typical silhoutte, like I did with the fur collar pictured above.

8. A Wool Blend Camel Coat

Similar to the classic look and feel of the black winter coat, khaki/tan/beige - whatever you'd like to call the color - can be the same. It offers a great blank slate and can be perfect for layering other outwear underneath - i.e. a hoodie, a leather jacket, cardigan, etc. I wore two coats under mine for this very layered and stylish look.

9. A Fur Coat

Cruella who? A fur coat is the epitome of glamour when it comes to cold weather style. Pro tip: If you're going to go fur, go vintage. This diva statement coat is bound to have you turning heads everywhere you go.

So, if you've been rocking with this site for several years now, you might vaguely recall an article that I wrote, a couple of years back entitled, "Why You Need To Grieve Your Past Relationship". The bottom line was, if you don't make the time to go through the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance — even when it comes to the ending of a romantic relationship, you could 1) mistake a lack of thorough and proper grieving for still loving someone and/or 2) prolong the process of healing, so that you can actually move forward.

We all know that advocacy for inclusion and equality should be year-round, since we all have to be our fullest selves all day every day. Identity is a key element of doing that, and for LGBTQ+ professionals, this can include the question of coming out at work. Some may wonder whether their personal business is, well, anybody's business at work, while others might want to feel safe in the office being out, loud, and proud. Either way, coming out in the workplace is indeed an issue that not only must be addressed, but addressed appropriately.

Love is beautiful and social media is a wonderful way to showcase and spread it. However, many times it's the content with a bit of controversy or drama tied to it that gets all the double taps. But as my father once told me, "It's fine to seek drama in your art and interests, but love should make you happy and feel peace." When he said that, it stuck with me. For a long time, I think I sought out excitement in my relationships and that can lead to a lot of unhappiness or unhealthy situations.
