Red Military Coat: Combating the Chills in Style

Alright ladies and gents, you already know that I am a big fan of Olivia Palermo, right? Well, if you don’t, I invite to read all about it here.  Every time I come across a photo of Olivia Palermo, I can’t help but admire her sense of style.  Whether on the red carpet or running around the city, she rarely misses the mark when it comes to fashion, and has, in my opinion, become a top fashion icon. With this being said, you can imagine my excitement when I heard a few months back that Olivia had become an ambassador for Banana Republic.  In her latest Capsule Collection for BR, now in stores, she refers to the designs as being “really great, fun touch on basics”.  I fell head over heels for this long red military coat. What there’s not to love right? The color, the design, the gold details; it’s what I call perfection!  I had been on the hunt for a fall coat for quite a while but the minute I laid eyes on this one, I knew it was THE one. Now that fall has finally arrived, I can finally wear this little masterpiece that has been sitting in my closet for a couple of weeks.  In an interview with Vogue earlier this summer, Olivia mentions: “Everyone should have a great statement coat in one’s wardrobe.” Two words: Mission Accomplished.
