Stay Chic (& Warm) in a Statement Coat
"Some of the biggest news is the deep vibrant color of coats this winter," notes eBay Style Director, Constance White, offering timely tips on keeping cozy while you stand out. Her picks: an all-out shade of berry, plum, or green. She also advises choosing a coat with some structure for the most flattering fit. "A structured jacket can be slimming; choose a piece with a dramatic collar, which pulls the eye upward and away from the waist."
Alternatively, go for architectural details like ruffles, epaulets, belts, or origami folds - all of which work best in classic black. If you choose a style that's military or menswear'ish, such as a biker jacket, make a style statement by pairing it with something feminine. "Throw a masculine topper over a soft dress. It is easily one of the freshest ways to wear a coat, and several designers sent this look down the runway. Now women can wear it down the street."
Close to 50,000 coats are currently listed on eBay.com, where the average price of a leather jacket is a suprisingly affordable $70! This lipstick red number can be yours for under $50 from eBay boutique Agape.
