What is it about the color red that makes it such an eye-catching color? This coat is the perfect accessory for those days when it’s dreary or overcast. I love the simple cut of the coat and its subtle detail – not to mention how incredibly warm it keeps me, too. What’s your go to accessory when the weather isn’t great?

    I can’t agree more about bold (red) colors & making an overcast day a little more bright. Loving it with the blue stripes. My go-to accessories is probably a scarf right now, adding some color in and keeping me warm at the same time.
