As I mentioned in my last post – I’m really loving red pieces this Fall. And while I’ve usually been quite conservative in my outerwear choices – I think I’m finally ready for a bright red coat!
I picked up this lipstick red coat at JOE FRESH. It’s a fun balance of lady-like and modern. The collar and length are classic, while the extra pockets and the zip fastening add an unexpected (and convenient!) twist. I especially appreciate zip closures in outerwear – who has time to button and unbutton multiple times?

And if you’re wondering why I’m wearing the coat on my shoulders as a cape – I promise you, it’s not a blogger cliche. When the weather is cold but not freezing, wearing your coat on your shoulders adds just the right amount of warmth – without making you sweat (TMI, I know!). Give it a try – you might love it!
Would you wear a red coat or is it too Little Red Riding Hood for you?
DISCLAIMER: I purchased the coat with a giftcard provided by JOE FRESH
