Thrift store shopping has been one of my favorite hobbies for as long as I can remember. In fact, any time that I’m wearing something rare or unique it was most likely found in a thrift store.
Ironically, I came across this statement piece while thrifting in Santa Barbara, CA. Unlike New York, it’s usually pretty warm during this time of the year so I didn’t expect to find any winter coats at any of the the local thrift stores.
Fortunately, this piece was in my size and it’s the ideal statement piece for those cool “winter” evenings that we’ve been having!
The Statement Coat
If you’re a regular of this blog, you know that I’m always discussing the importance of keeping your outfits simple. Undoubtably, the same rules apply when it comes to wearing statement pieces like this one.
The goal is to keep the rest of your outfit simple so that the statement piece stands out on its own!
For instance, a simple solid t-shirt and a pair of dark blue denim jeans is all you really need to complete the look.
If you have a similar statement coat of your own and you’re thinking of ways to dress it up for a special occasion or just a date night.
