I just knew that red pea coat I found hidden in a corner at J.Crew in Dallas would come back to bite me. Why? Because I didn’t buy it – sigh. Red coats are all the rage this season with celebs like Nicole Richie (hers is Sonia by Sonia Rykiel) and Leighton Meester turning up around town in them. They pair so perfectly with black – the contrast is impeccable! Red and black is the new black and white. It brings a little life of the party out of the generally classic, conservative girl. But put red on a pea coat and you can have your cake and eat it too – bold, chic and classic. Voila!
P.S. I found an unbelievable deal (thank you, recession) at Macys.com (click here) on this double-breasted MICHAEL Michael Kors pea coat – on sale for $93.56. (Hurry though – looks like the sale ends 1/10!) And might I add this line is made of gorgeous coats?
