Most people shopping for a new coat will buy a black one. You know it’ll camouflage coffee stains, hide wear-and-tear, and remain stylish in five years. But when you stare into a sea of identical black puffers and pea coats, everything feels a little sad. Winter leeches the color from everything so why not be the bright spot in the crowd? A rich red style does just that. And it is in a sweet spot between “on trend” and “classic.” Whether you’re looking for an of-the-moment evening coat like a faux-fur, or if you’re reading to commit to an investment coat, we’ve found a style for you.
