Style Right Now: 22 Colorful Coats

When I was in high school, I had to, had to, have a Kelly green overcoat. I went to multiple stores to find the perfect one. I think someone once told me I looked like an old lady. Yes, that was the style. It was the 1980s. That’s all I need to say, right? I’m sure I must have spotted jewel tone overcoats in Vogue. While my friends were being all sporty Connecticut, I was wishing I lived in New York. If you spend the time scrolling through these overcoats in hues that range from cotton candy to robin’s egg blue, you will be treated with a photo I plucked out of a box last night.

These days, I don’t even wear an overcoat. Sure, I have the luscious camel one I purchased in Florence years ago, still pristine, and a black Max Mara oversize cocoon from, hell, I don’t remember. As a work-from-home writer who lives in Boston, I’m way more partial to my ankle length gray Patagonia. But if I did have reason to dress well again, and I lived somewhere a tad less chilly, I might be tempted to dip back into a pastel, neon, or candy colored overcoat. These women wear them well.┬áHere are 22 colorful coats, street style.

And, for comedic value, this is me in high school,
doing street style, or rather, backyard style, before it was a thing.
I loved that green overcoat. Yikes. Let’s not discuss the Angora beret.
It was the mid ’80s. That’s all I can say.
