Being a New York City gal, I know all-to-well the importance of having an extra-warm coat (or two) to get you through an East Coast winter — which will undoubtedly last until April this year. Just out luck, huh?

We’ve no choice but to embrace the breezy chill, really –and my favorite way to do so is to liven up my winter wardrobe with a festive, plaid print or cheerfully colored coat.

Perhaps it’s an attempt at staving off an early on-set of SAD? Either way, this coat may have mood-lifting powers, because quite simply, the bold-and-bright hue makes me happy. Click to see more of these looks: blanket scarf / orange coat / plaid coat.
