11 Statement-Making Winter Coats That Radiate Boss Energy

The name of the game: bold coats.

Style

Coats are a staple for autumn/winter and an effortless way to polish off any look. Bold coats are on trend for this season and our favorite style stars are executing it flawlessly. From long hemlines to bomber jackets to classic trench coats, we're seeing bold prints and colors modernize some of fashion's classic coat styles.

Check out the bold styles that are snatching our edges this season:

1.Baby Blue Midi Trench

If you're hesitant to try colorful coat, pair it with neutrals like Alyssa. This helps to tone down the boldness of the coat but keeps your overall look very clean and chic.

2.Statement Large Lapel Midi Coat

This is another great example of how to transition a bright color into fall. Alanna keeps the look fresh by pairing the coat with lighter neutrals.

3.Baby Blue Bomber

There are a million ways to wear a bomber jacket but Nelly truly pulled this powder blue one off. A playful piece like this can add fun and a sense of casualness to your look.

4.Trench Patent Leather Trench

A classic example of playing with color but not going overboard. Kellie pairs her trench with an outfit in the same color wheel. This elongates the body and adds depth to the look.

5.Animal Print Trench

This combines the best of two fall trends: trench and animal prints. The shorter skirt paired with the long lines of the trench create a playful yet professional street style look. It's also a great way to transition those summer pieces!

6.Green Trench

If you're more of a risk taker, take a cue from June when styling a bold coat. Inside of neutrals underneath, opt for complementary colors to brighten up the look.

7.Camel Cape

This is a bold look and the ultimate stylish piece. There's something magical about capes, especially into the holiday season.

8.Plush Teddy Coat

With a coat like this, you can really mix up your style. Teddy coats can be super casual or ultra-luxurious, depending on your occasion. Maxi coats are on trend this fall/winter.

9.Red Patent Leather Trench

Pair down with jeans and a simple tee like Bengine, or dress up with a LBD. You want the coat to be the statement, so neutrals are your best bet.

10. Neon Green Coat

Go big or go home, right? It's the perfect blend of trend and nostalgia, especially with the hair. Grace pairs this bright jacket with all black, but adds some texture with her slouchy calf boots.

11. Trench as a Dress

The uniformity of the look is achieved by using the same print in different colors. Kelly also plays with the height of the boot and the slit of the trench, adding a bit of edge to the look. By choosing one print in various colors, you can transition this look from work to drinks at cocktail hour to date night.

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.
