SOPHIE AND CHARLOTTE BICKLEY YIN 2MY YANG FASHION BLOGGERS STATEMENT COAT POST
 

SOPHIE'S LOOK:

There are no words to describe how obsessed I am with my Jocelyn 'The Marmalade" multi-colored patchwork coat. I think it is most definitely the most amazing/fun fun coat that has ever been made or worn...definitely the most amazing/fun coat that I own! When I wear this jacket, I feel like I am back in the 70's, and I LOVE It. When out and about in this coat, it definitely sets me apart from the crowd and makes a statement with its bright colored patchwork. This coat is great dressed up or down and it's a piece that know I will have in my closet forever - this coat is timeless, I will never get tired of it. It wasn't hard to figure out what to pair with my beautiful statement piece.

Underneath, I wore a pair of my favorite black denim stretchy skinny jeans, my AGOLDE 'Sophie' black denim skinny jeans (side note: how funny that SOPHIE is the name of this jean type, hehe, they were clearly made for me, LOVE IT!). Next, I wore my comfy & versatile metallic loafers, my go-to Komono 'Vivien' round sunglasses (probably my favorite sunglasses ever), and finally an awesome & edgy black velvet Choked by a Thread choker with metal holes in it, the 'Grommet' velvet choker to top the entire outfit off! I absolutely loved my look!!! - felt like I was a character out of the movie Almost Famous 8-) In my dreams...ha!

CHARLOTTE'S LOOK:

For my statement coat I chose a vibrant orange coat in cozy teddy bear wool by Topshop. I love this coat not only for its amazing color but also for its classic and simple look. It is such a simple coat in theory, but the color is what makes it special, what makes it noticeable and fashionable - it can add style to any outfit it's paired with, Although this coat looks great with any outfit, in today's post, I decided to pair it with a simple underneath look, very similar to Soph's. Underneath my statement coat, I wore a pair of black leather leggings to give my look a more casual feel. 

I love to use a coat as a signature piece because a coat ties together a look and bright colors are fantastic for the transition from cold temps & snow to warmer days full of sun! I finished off my look with my unique & stunning Miu Miu lace up ballet flats. I absolutely adore these and know I will be wearing them a ton throughout the Spring and into the Spring. I love this simple look paired with my bold orange statement coat.

JUST TRYNA' MAKE A STATEMENT ;)

 
 

There's nothing like your favorite statement coat to get you through those days when you reeeeally want to look cute, but have absolutely no idea what to wear & a very short amount of time to figure it out - ahem, getting ready for hungover weekend brunches with the ladies...or the gents. The good new is, all you need to do is throw on that statement coat, wear a pair of simple black jeans or leggings, your favorite flats, sunglasses (if you're feeling it) & you are GOOD TO GO!!! This simple, yet stylin', look is 100% as must have we transition from Winter into Spring! We're dreaming of rainbows & orange colors on this gloomy, snowy day in NYC.
