Buy Now: Coats of Many Colors

by Jill Manoff

Ready to get color-coated? It’s all about coats in look-at-me colors, and we recommend stocking up. You can’t go wrong with these four styles.

Red Alert
Interrupt the winter blues with a bolder-than-bold red topper. Our top picks include tapered-waist styles that are this side of casual, so can be worn on the daily. They’re chic with shades of navy and gray. For an unexpected combo? Pair with pink or bordeaux.

True Blue
One of the most important pairings of the season? Black and blue. We’re seeing it on handbags; we’re seeing it on pumps; we’re seeing it on pants in loud-as-ever prints. If you’re like us, you're already halfway to getting the look. (We live in black!) As for the second half? A cobalt coat should prove perfect.

Hello, Yellow
Ever since one of our favorite designers sent white-and-yellow checkerboard prints down the runway, we’ve been itching to get a statement yellow style of our own. Enter the sleek yellow coat. It’s an unexpected pick, but right on trend—and looks stellar with all the new army-green styles.

Purple Reigns
A number of classic haberdashery fabrics have been revamped for fall—and we can’t get enough. Among the standouts? Plaids, like Prince of Wales checks—which we’ve seen decorating coats in styles across the board. Score one for the workweek and another for the weekend, and pair them with neutrals and accessories that pop.
