Happy New Year lovely readers. A very cold beginning of the year it has been, not only in Minneapolis but throughout the rest of the country. Another way to remain stylish during the the cold months is by incorporating a fun statement coat into your winter wardrobe. The statement coat, also known as a hero coat, makes the coat rather than whats beneath it the center of the outfit. Not sure, if my bright blue cashmere coat with fur collar was able to succeed in that regard since my #vivaAfrica sweatshirt by afromodernist fashion retailer, Oxosi is such a srong statement. You can contact the retailer’s customer service fo more information on whether they will be be bringing back this sweatshirt that has long sold out. Easily take a coat into the statement territory by choosing a coat in a color other than basic black, a great solution if you want to stand out among a bevy of basic black coats.
