Beyond the Basics: Statement Coats
Here at SnobSwap, we are welcoming the season of layering by highlighting our favorite statement coats. As you may noticed, department stores are now flooded with drama-queen coats, preparing for the late Fall/early Winter. While it may be tempting to grab the cheapest and trendiest coat you can find on the rack, it is always best to invest in a good Fall/Winter coat. Investing in a good designer coat will save you money in the long run and will most likely hold up a lot longer than your typical inexpensive coat. Just because you will be spending a little more than usual on a coat doesn't mean that you have to play it safe and buy a simple black coat. Statement coats are investments that will add the perfect finishing touch to your outfit. Just put on a simple outfit (a basic tee with jeans or slacks) with a statement jacket and you'll will have everyone thinking that you are an important fashion blogger.

Fur

Screen Shot 2016-10-12 at 1.29.52 AM Although fur is not everyone's cup of tea, it sure can make a statement. It will not only give you a glamorous vibe, but will also add volume to your outfit. If you love the fur look but do know want to wear the real deal, you can always go for faux fur (such as our Velvet Brown Faux Fur Jacket on the right). Our fur favorites are Neiman Marcus Oversized Fur Coat (middle) and Proenza Schouler Goat Fur Jacket (left).

Pop of color

Wearing a bright statement coat will add a pop of color to your outfits and have you stand out against the dark winter weather. Brighten the day and style our Marc Jacobs Pink Collared Coat (right), Gucci Red Trench Coat (middle), or Sandro Mustard Yellow Suede Fringe Jacket (left).

Accents

Screen Shot 2016-10-12 at 1.37.50 AM If big statement coats are not your style or are too much, you can always try coats with accents. Whether it be sequins or color block, a cc still taking a step beyond the basic black coat. You can try embroidered beads with our Escada Blue Orange Pink Floral  Denim Jacket (right), fur collar with our Dolce & Gabbana Wool Tweed Fur Collar Overcoat (middle), or stripes with our Twilley Woven Knit Draped Cape.

Printed

Screen Shot 2016-10-12 at 1.41.26 AM Who can forget printed coats when it comes to statement pieces? Prints are a fun trend to play with because there are so many you can choose from. From animal print to floral, you can try any print that that fits your aesthetic. Choose from leopard print with our Dolce & Gabbana Leopard Velvet Blazer (right), abstract with our Gucci Black & White Trenchcoat (middle), floral with our Dolce & Gabbana Rose Print Blazer, or much more in our Statement coat collection.

Textured

Screen Shot 2016-10-12 at 1.44.13 AM   Making a statement with your outfits allows you play with materials beyond cotton and wool. Step away from the basic fabrics and try new ones for a change. Experiment with metallic in our Reed Krakoff Rose Gold Vest (right), sequins in our Chanel Black Sequin Blazer (middle), or suede in our Gucci Suede Ash Trench Coat (left).
