When the weather is gray, bring the color!I've been told that it's quite cold in most of the country right now. It's raining here in Los Angeles so I feel your pain. This time of year, in the dead of winter, it's easy to make like the gloomy weather and stick to dull grays and somber blacks, but I have a challenge for you: combat the dreary weather with a colorful coat!
I'm a firm believer in the idea that how you dress can affect your mood. It's why I never wear sweatpants in public (they make me feel sloppy and half-dressed) and why I dress up when I'm feeling under the weather. It may be a placebo effect, but dressing the part always helps me feel better.
Similarly, wearing bright colors on a cloudy day is an easy way to cheer yourself (as well as others) up and combat things like Seasonal Affective Disorder, so I've gathered up a rainbow of coats to keep you in a colorful mood during the winter!
