Feeling Confident in Red
I am starting to understand why many love to wear red this time of year. Especially when you are feeling festive for the holidays. I normally don’t gravitate towards the color red. But I have been feeling bolder and more confident to try adding more vibrant colors to my wardrobe. As I have said before, I used to be a girl who loved to wear all black but over the years I have gradually been experimenting with colors of all kinds. And now even the boldest of reds, like this red coat, have a place in my wardrobe.
Expressing Confidence With A Vintage Red Coat
There is always something to admire about a woman that experiments with her wardrobe. And there is no denying that what we choose to wear determines if we wish to stand out or choose to hide behind in the shadows. Our mood also dictates whether we feel bold enough to try something different. I believe choosing to wear more colors gives you more freedom to express yourself. Red expresses confidence. And it also expresses your festive holiday spirit. Sharing that happiness for the season with anyone you may encounter.
Where to Hunt For the Best Statement Vintage

I wasn’t having any luck finding what I was looking for online or at a thrift store. But I was able to find this 1950’s style coat at the first vintage shop I went into. Talk about lucky. As soon as I bought it, I was giddy with excitement. I couldn’t wait to incorporate it into my wardrobe by putting together a few outfits. And what is even better is this exceptionally made coat with the statement buttons and sleeves only cost $75. If I wanted to buy a new coat like this one, I, for one wouldn’t be able to find this style. And if I was able to find something similar it certainly would cost a small fortune.
Classic Style That Does Not Age
I decided to go with a monochrome black look as a base layer to compliment the red coat. This style coat looks best with long dresses and skirts, which is exactly what I am always looking for in a coat. A classic and timeless style that can be worn with any kind of outfit. This outfit really reminds me of the greatest fashion icons like Audrey Hepburn. Her incredible style is built around classics and statement pieces. Clothing that never fades with time.
