I’ve been obsessing over this coat since I first saw it glowing in a J.Crew store. And I was pretty lucky to score it on sale when doing some Christmas shopping with my mom last weekend (thanks for the early Christmas present, mom!). I’ve never been one to shy away from bright colors – and this neon red is no exception. But I’ve definitely gotten some shocked looks (slash temporarily blinded people) while wearing it in public. The wool seems to emit a fluorescent glow, I swear. But I plan to keep it in heavy rotation this winter – as an act of rebellion against the chilly gray Boston winter ahead. I wore a simple white and black combo under my vibrant cocoon, so the contrast would be even more intense. A pair of pointy snakeskin pumps (from one of Gilt’s in-house brands, Maiden Lane) adds a hint of neutral texture.
