Ditch your old navy blue pea coat or black fleece for something that’ll put a smile on your face even when you wear it for the fourth chilly day in a row. Brights are huge this fall, and Sarah Jessica Parker shows how to make a cold weather outfit pop in the hot pink cropped jacket she wore while out and about in Soho. Follow her lead and keep the rest of the outfit fairly neutral with one of these statement coats.
Tip #3: Wear an athletic-inspired jacket like Kristen Stewart
