A cold winter can be very frustrating from a fashion perspective. You put together a très chic look, throw on your warmer coat, and then it’s over. Your outfit is now your coat. Sure, you have cute shoes on or carry a gorgeous bag, but really, your outfit is mostly your coat. That is why I love the look shown above on Hanneli Mustaparta. A photographer, blogger, stylist and former model, Hanneli makes her coat the focal point of her look while the rest of the outfit is stylistically simple and chic, and complements (love the blue!) the coat’s bright neon green shade. Also love that she’s wearing neon in winter which is an unexpected and refreshing burst of color when the days are short and a bit more dreary.

And of course you need a bag. Colorful and fun, this one by Alexander McQueen brings together the colors of the outfit. It’s smaller size makes it less overwhelming and more subtle.
