The Season’s Most Covetable Colorful Coats

By Kristen Shirley

This story originally appeared in the November/December 2017 issue of Elite Traveler.

Winter blues? Not when you’re wearing a fabulous coat in a Crayola-bright color. Solid-colored, color-blocked or in a sharp print—we love them all. Embrace head-to-toe color courtesy of Givenchy, where streetwear influences are tempered by over-the-knee boots and a flared skirt. At Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld makes sharply tailored plaid suiting ultra-feminine with a hot pink and white pattern. Michael Kors is known for his love of color, and we especially love how a bright yellow trench pairs with silk floral pajama-style pieces. Not a coat, but a mod cape from Delpozo is a whimsical way to incorporate one of resort’s most ubiquitous colors: lime green. Color-blocking with light blue in a ladylike silhouette, it’s a piece that can carry through the seasons.

Now you just need to decide how to accessorize your colorful coat. Go all in with a contrasting color to create your own color-blocked look, or stick to luxe neutrals to tone it down just a bit. Max Mara’s special edition mini Whitney bag comes in a rich, citrine-colored velvet and has crystal details on the convertible shoulder strap. Known for its minimalist take on luxury, The Row’s elegant calfskin Lux Satchel adds the perfect finishing touch.
