I confess, Winter isn’t my favorite season but if you have to live through it, you may was well do it with a bold statement. Each year the first cold front motivates me to find outwear and accessories to weather the weather. Enter stage right this coat from Club Monaco. I don’t think I have actually owned a patterned coat before, but the colors and the voluminous shape are what attracted me to this piece. If you wear a lot of grays and black, like I do, a pattern in dark and neutral colors complement them quite well. As a bonus, it allows you to wear the simplest of outfits and still feel totally dressed up.
