Nothing seems like a better idea this time of year than a red coat. It’s bright, it stands out in a forest of black, and it throws a flattering rosiness onto any complexion. A red coat is a great way to keep a casual outfit bright and fun. But how do you make a red coat work well for a casual outfit? Here is my suggestion.
If you opt for a casual day look or you are overwhelmed by the amazingly many street styles with bold red outfits this season and don’t know where to start, red and neutrals is really the best way to go. They can be black neutrals, navy blue, grey, or camel neutrals. I also enjoy the red and pink combination, or a total red outfit for a more vivid and eye-catching look, but it depends on the occasion and the result you want to achieve.
I wore this travel look during a weekend trip in northern Greece and chose to pair my red coat with camel/beige. Red does a great job brightening up these tones. This sweater and pants are so comfy, that even though they are not bought from a maternity department, they still fit me now on my 36th week of pregnancy. But even non-pregnant ladies can wear my look, so check below for outfit details and a selection of my favourite red coats for this season.
Obviously I started my outfit from this fab red coat from H&M. I am in love with its quality and structure! I paired with camel sweater, cream pants and super comfy Nike millennium sneakers that I got last summer. I finished with my favourite statement sunglasses from Chloe and my mini Louis Vuitton backpack, for some pop of brown. How do you like it?
This season, there is no easier way to make a statement on the streets than sporting red coat. When it comes to looking chic and bold, a red coat is definitely a perfect choice. How do you feel about the red trend this season? Do you own a red coat and what’s your go-to way to wear it? Let me know in the comments below, I am always excited to read your ideas!

How lovely. Big warm coats are essential at this time of year. The weather here is horrible and never ending.
I only own bright red fleeces; sadly no red coats. Belted wool coats with big collars look and feel deliciously warm.
As always, Stella. You look stunning.
Thank you so much my dear Jo! Same thing in Greece where I am now, one can’t wear a heavy coat it’s ridiculously hot for winter time. I hold my breath (and coats) for Paris 😉 Have a great week! xoxo
This is just AMAZING on you, Stella! It works so well with your hair and those neutral tones you’ve worn it with. Red is my favourite colour, and I think everyone looks great in it. It has such power and impact. I just bought a second red raincoat… it seemed like a good idea, since it truly livens up a grey rainy day nicely!
You are looking just beautiful; I can’t believe you are already to 36 weeks! WOW! My little boy arrived at 38 weeks… not long to go now for you. I know you are enjoying this time in your life, and I wish you so much happiness. Love to you, and Happy Monday xxx
Aw thank you so much Lisa! Although I think nobody does red like you! Your coat selection and styling was really impressing!
Yes 36th week, I can’t believe how time flies… I am really enjoying pregnancy, and will definitely miss this wonderful period!
Hope 2018 is treating you well 😉 When will you be back in Paris?
PS: I get such good vibes from you even by reading your message. Can’t wait to see you again Lisa! xoxo
Big kiss to Alexander!
The red color suits you perfectly ,they are my favourite in winter🌹I truly loved the way how you styled it with wide long cream pants and how you paired them with Nike millennium sneakers . I would honestly wear them everyday.😍
Have a great night beautiful💓
So glad to read this Sara, I am really happy you like it! Thanks for stopping by and have a great night too! xoxo

Thank you so much Susanne, I feel better than ever! <3 Kisses!!
That red shade looks marvellous on you Stella!
Stella you look so gorgeous in this chic red coat. I love a pretty red coat and also have showcased my favourite one on SheHearts. A great choice to add some drama to say a plainer outfit or muted colour such as black.
Wishing you a HAPPY 2018!
Love love love the red coat and how you styled it. I also recently talked about colored coats on my blog!

Vibrant red is such a great contrast against the neutral camel. I love the volume in your pieces too. They’re layered so well.
you styled it sooo well! love the sunnies and bag – perfect combo 😉 xx
Nice and perfect looking outfit..
I live for red coats! You made an incredible styling worth of copying it ♥
The sneakers are really cool too!
The clean colors and the pop of red are a great combo
Oh Stella, you wear EVERYTHING effortlessly! But I do love your suggestion of pairing this red coat with beige tones, they work together so well. Also love how the photos of this shoot turned out, you’re such a beauty!

Chicest mama around! The red coat is dreamy – love how you wore it with camel and white; so chic.

Much love from England,
