Spied on the Street: The Colorful Coat

Persons of Interest, Street Style  /   /  By Nina Louie

If there’s one thing that cheers us on drab winter days, it’s the big, bright coats we’re seeing virtually everywhere—from the streets of NYC to the selfies on Instagram. The look is super soft and fuzzy—we’re talking teddy-bear plush—and doused in a totally unnatural color like baby blue, pastel pink, or mint green. Those who dare are going a step further with striped, color-blocked, and splashy spotted versions. What could be more bewitching when the skies are gray and the streets are snowy white? This particular New Yorker was bold, too, in her chose of textures. An open-knit sweater and sheer chiffon pants in the prettiest pale lavender hue are the perfect match for her blue faux fur. Of course, we can’t imagine how she was possibly warm enough in this look, but it’s so very beautiful. Don’t miss the snakeskin accents—the most glamorous neutral—genius.

    Yes, in a different color, preferably boysenberry. Blue is not my color.

    I actually really like the coat. It’s a very unique look. It would be a blast to wear. Maybe in a different color, I’m not a blue person, but if that’s the only choice I would own one.
