Would You Wear It – Statement Red

Would You Wear It – Statement Red

Happy Saturday ladies and welcome to your weekend. It’s raining here so we are settling in for a cozy weekend inside, with some new books and a special decaf pumpkin tea we picked up at Murchie’s last week. It’s better than it sounds:)

It’s time for would you wear it so grab another cup of your favorite coffee or tea and let’s get to it. Each week my friend Pam and I share a mannequin we have come across randomly,  and ask if you would wear what it’s wearing. I love you to also share your styling ideas in the comments to help inspire others.

    Love, love, love! I would absolutely wear any of these coats. I really love great pops of colour and think the last thing anyone should wear is a boring black coat! Thanks for sharing.

    I would definitely wear that red coat, in fact I’m just realizing that I have 4 red coats and jackets. It is hard to find a coat that isn’t black or grey nowadays. Winter is dreary enough, let’s get some colour. Black clothing wasn’t as common when I was young, I’m 60

    I’m late on commenting but I really like this coat! Like others have said, blue-red is my shade, not orange-reds

    It’s difficult to find a winter dress coat that isn’t black/grey/brown. When I was looking and wanted anything but a dark colour there was very little choice. I finally found one in red and I get compliments every time I wear it. It’s a basic style but the compliments come because it isn’t black/brown/grey.

    Yes to everything here! Beautiful shade of red. I do love a nice red coat. Also love the pants, boots and sweater. If I wasn’t retired I would be rushing out to look for these pieces.

    I love that coat. I too, prefer a blue red to an orange red so I always pay attention to the tone of red. I have a red sweater coat that is similar to this one except it has 3 buttons. I love red coats so much that I have a maxi red wool, a 3/4 pique that zips, a raincoat, and the sweater coat. A red coat turns anything you are wearing into an outfit when you add a scarf. They are as important as red shoes 🙂

    This is a beautiful coat! Last winter I bought a long red coat as I was so tired of wearing and seeing grey and black coats for months. It was a great decision and I’m looking forward to wearing it again once the weather cools down.

    Absolutely! I just bought myself a red trench coat…not that I needed it, but it sparked joy! Now if we can just make the pandemic go away so I can leave home to wear it!

    Any chance we could talk you into returning to the mall to see what store/brand it is? Absolutely love the coat and would wear it in a heartbeat!

      I’m sorry I can’t. I only snapped this to ask you ladies what you thought.

    Love the red coat. I once had a long red coat that I loved. Great for recess duty in the snowy weather when I was teaching. Thanks for sharing.

    I once had a red coat, so, yes, I would wear this one. I think it’s cheerful, a bright red coat amid a sea of black ones!

    Love the colour and the style. Where did you see this coat. I live near Toronto. Can I order online? Thanks.

      Please, please let me know where you saw the coat. I live close to Toronto and would like to know if it can be ordered on line. Perfect colour and cut for me.

    I would absolutely wear that red coat. I love the color & the length. Since most of my coats are black, it would be a great pick me up on a gray winter day.

    I’ve been wanting a red coat…loved that look in the picture. I ordered the Cole Haan you linked! It was a great price. I’m crossing my fingers that it won’t be too orangey. Thanks for getting me to try something I’ve been bv wanting for years!

    Oh what a gorgeous coat! Love the style, color, fabric … everything.

    I’ve wanted a red coat for years, but have never even tried one on. I was afraid it would be too bold for me.

    But my style has changed over the past several years, and I’m thinking this might be the year for a red coat. We all need something bright and cheery right now!

    When I lived and worked in Vermont many years ago (I’m now an Arizona girl) I had a beautiful long red coat with a black velvet collar and it was a joy to wear. I found a couple of gorgeous black and red silk scarves that filled in the neckline and I was a happy (and warm) camper.

    The style on the red coat pictured would not work for my short chunky body but it brought back some good memories.

    None of the pictures above appear to be the exact coat as on the model. At what store did you take the photo? What is the brand of the coat? Love it!

    Absolutely, I love red!
