Being from Florida, I never really understood the power of a statement coats until I moved to New York. I could put together the perfect warm-weather look in my sleep, but mastering winter style has been a little tricky.
Well, that was until I learned a secret that all of us true fashion lovers know: when you have on a head-turning coat, it really doesn’t matter what you’re wearing underneath. You could literally throw on a pair of sweatpants and still look oh-so-chic.
Even Jennifer Lopez said it’s one of her go-to secrets for putting together a flawless winter look when I interviewed her. And, it appears other celebs (and their stylists) understand the power of a statement coat, too, because this item has been the highlight of their winter street style photos. Of course, there are several specific coats that seem to be having their viral moment, and one brand in particular is getting a lot of love this season: Stand Studio.
I have never seen a company consistently drop bold, unexpected patterns and luxe, faux-fur finishes the way that Stand Studio does. It’s not easy to create a vegan leather jacket or faux-animal print design that looks high-quality and is affordable, but the brand is doing it without charging thousands of dollars.
I actually found a few celebrity-approved styles on sale at multiple retailers, so it looks like right now is definitely the best time to invest in one of these beloved statement coats. Peep the exact styles the stars are wearing, below, then grab one on sale so you can stunt this winter, too.
