Pippa Middleton has emerged this year as one of my new favorite style icons.
I love seeing photos of what she's wearing each day, largely because her looks are both stylish and easy to copy -- and this one is no exception!
I firmly believe in having one standout coat in your closet -- Pippa's got the right idea with this one, since red has emerged as THE color of the season.
It generally only takes one red item to make a strong statement, whether it's a coat, a cape, a skinny belt, or shoes.
Pair it with black if you're in doubt and you can't go wrong!
I'll show you some more ways to wear the trend -- and some affordable options for your wardrobe -- after the jump!
St John offers up another take on the red trend with this sharp red jacket. I have a similar (albeit less expensive) one in my closet and I wear it every season. It NEVER goes out of style!
Ditto on this lovely red dress from St. John. I bought an almost identical one from Talbots a year ago and it's one of my favorite things in my closet. Again, it's a timeless look that also happens to be very trendy this season.
Want to copy Pippa's look on a budget? Check out this pretty wool trench (Victoria's Secret, $126 on sale).
This pretty Velvety Corduroy blazer (Charlotte Russe, $34.99) is a great price.
This stylish cowl neck dress (Calvin Klein, $99 on sale) is a fabulous option that could be worn to so many different types of occasions.
And check out this Ultra-Soft Twist Front Sweater Dress (Target, $29.99) for more casual outings. I'm intrigued!
I added a touch of red to my wardrobe this season with these cute Kate Spade reading glasses (Kate Spade, $68). LOVE -- and if you get them today, they're 30% off!
I still believe that every woman should have a pair of hot red pumps in her closet. I like these red platforms (Amazon, $62.99) if you can walk in them. Great style and great price, too!
