When I first saw this coat from Agnes B. It immediately caught my eye and I just had to buy it ! I was really lucky to get the last one they had left ! Obviously I wasn't the only one who fell in love with this spring coat !
There's nothing more dramatic, eye catching, and powerful than the color red. It's also a perfect color to start off Spring.
I also think the shade of this red is perfect. It's not too bright and it isn't dark red or burgundy either. What's great about this coat is that it's on the thinner side so you don't have to wait for winter to come around to use it.
As long as you have this coat you instantly stand out and makes your outfit complete.
Because of the bright red coat of course I kept everything else pretty simple with the rest of the outfit pretty monochrome.
The hat with the bow is also from Agnes B. I bought it along with the coat ! Adds just a little more to the overall look without being it being too overwhelming.
I know I love red as well as incorporating colors into my outfits but for those who like to stick with neutral colors do you think a red coat is too much? Would you try it? Personally I know red is eye catching but I never thought of it as over the top or too showy/flashy or anything like that.
It's definitely different than say... a hot pink coat or something like that! I don't think I would pull that off.
I really love the idea of combining the classic trench style coat with a more trendy color like red. I mean they had this same coat in beige as well, but that didn't exactly appeal to me as much as red.
It's slowly getting hotter in Japan and cherry blossoms are beginning to bloom so although this outfit is more for colder weather I will soon start posting outfits fit for warmer weather! Time to get ready for sunshine!
