Hey guys, it's me again.

Red. I remember once someone telling me that people who pick red as their favorite color are psychos ㅋㅋ. Well in that case, gladly will I be perceived as a psycho! (Oh, and just in case for those who have no idea of what those two alien characters are... 'ㅋㅋ' is like 'haha' in Korean)

Okay. There are a few points about this coat that I would like to point out.

First, of course, would be the color. In a cold season like Winter, usually all coats get toned down color-wise, and you can see a lot of black, navy, khaki, and brown colors. Perhaps this is because of some kind of 'anchoring' effect that makes the viewer feel warm? But the ironic thing is that a bright color like red represents 'fire!' And yes, red emphasizes your overall aura and silhouette in a way that brightens your face and atmosphere. Your face livens up, and you exert a more energetic feeling.

Second is the basic collar. Personally, I wouldn't mind a peacock collar (or should I say chinese collar?) the ones that are stiff and stand up on the neck... You know what I'm saying? ㅋㅋ But the red color already gives a strong enough feeling that the basic collar sort of balances out the overall look so that the coat can go along with other sets of clothes. So I would recommend that you keep the collar down... ㅋㅋ

Third would be those beige colored large buttons. This gives a clean finish to the look. Since a red background gives such a strong feeling, small buttons won't do the job. The beige colors also weighs out the color balance as well.

Lastly, the long length is the most important factor of a winter coat! Sometimes it would rain and sometimes it would snow. But no matter how important fashion is, one must keep warm! The soft yet thick fabric along with the long length of this coat definitely carries out that job~

Well, that would be it for today :) Thanks again for stopping by Chictopians!

Cheers.

The Gentlewoman,
Ssong
