How to wear a red statement coat

Call me Maddie fashion blog
Tartan scarf and red coat
A red coat is surely not the easiest item to style in your wardrobe or in an outfit, but at the same time it surely is a great way to add a pop of color, especially to those gloomy winter days! The coat that you are able to see in these pictures was sent to me by Lovelywholesale. Maybe you’ll remember this brand’s name from my previous blog posts as I have been successfully working together with them for more than a year already!
I really like the design of the coat, the length and the color, but I am not quite satisfied with the quality as it seems like some seams are off and the coat wrinkles in weird places. Even though, I am a bit disappointed with the coat, I cannot say the same thing about the beautiful white blouse! It’s a pity you are not able to see the blouse fully, because it has such a nice design and shape – it has this cascade type of form at the back, which looks very beautiful and feminine! If you are looking for a classic yet feminine white blouse, I definitely recommend this one!
All in all, I tried to style together simple, yet also classic look. I think that the red coat draws a lot of attention, therefore, all other outfit elements are kind of simple and more down to earth. I also was quite careful with accessories, because for this look I certainly didn’t want to go overboard with them! And that was actually hard because accessories are my favorite part of an outfit and I had to constantly remind myself that “less is more”! J

Sarkans mētelis noteikti nav tā vieglākā lieta, kuru iekļaut savā tērpā, bet tajā pat laikā tas kalpo kā fantastisks krāsas akcents drūmajās ziemas dienās! Mēteli, kuru jūs variet redzēt šajās bildēs es saņēmu no kompānijas Lovelywholesale. Iespējams atminaties šo vārdu, jo ar šo uzņēmumu mans blogs veiksmīgi sadarbojas jau vairāk nekā gadu! Man ļoti patīk mēteļa dizains, garums un krāsa, bet mani līdz galam neapmierināja tā kvalitāte, jo, manuprāt, tas nav līdz galam veiksmīgi uzšūts – audums dažās vietās met krokas un dažas vīles nav iespējams iztaisnot. Līdz ar to var teikt, ka biju nedaudz vīlusies tajā, bet to nevarētu teikt par balto blūzi, kuru bildēs nav iespējams tik labi ieraudzīt, jo pa virsu lielākoties  bija uzvilkts mētelis. Īpaši skaista bija blūzes aizmugure, kura ir izveidota tādā kā kaskādes veidā un lieliski izskatās un izceļ augumu! Ja meklējiet skaistu, sievišķīgu blūzi, tad šo es noteikti iesaku!
Kopumā tēlu es centos veidot salīdzinoši vienkāršu, bet tajā pat laikā klasisku. Manuprāt, sarkanais mētelis pats par sevi pievērš diezgan lielu uzmanību, tāpēc pārējās lietas es izvēlējos vienkāršākas un mierīgākas, kā arī šajā reizē es neliku uzsvaru uz aksesuāriem, lai gan atzīšos tas bija grūti! J Man ļoti patīk atsvaidzināt tērpus ar aksesuāriem un ļoti bieži nākas sev atgādināt, ka “kas par daudz tas par skādi”! J
