Red R(over) Black







      Living in California, I will find any excuse to wear my coats, and given that this winter has been unseasonably warm, I have tried to wear a coat every time the mercury drops anywhere near cold!  This red coat from Zara is one of my favorites.  I find that it is a almost the perfect color, it’s a little darker than true red, but that only seems to make it more wearable.  It is still very strong and will make a statement, but its not going to overpower a look… or an onlooker. 

      I matched it up with a new pair of sweatpants that I have recently purchased. Now, I am a fan of sweatpants, but what stops me from wearing them all the time is that after a few hours of wear, the knee area gets stretched out and makes the sweatpants appear unsightly, there are few things worse than baggy knees.  So I got this pair with knee patches and it solved my issue (so if you start seeing these often, I am sorry, but they are amazing).  They also had a nice detail on the back pocket which was a bit of a surprise.  On the top half, I threw on a collared shirt and sweater to dress this look up a little and stop me from looking like bum and of course my coat topped the look off! But I guess its time to put my coats back away and bring out the shorts!
