It's almost time to reach into the back of your closet to grab your winter coat. But what happens if the jacket you couldn't wait to wear last year just isn't as exciting this time around? Instead of hitting the stores and dropping cash on a brand new topper, here are a few ideas on how to make last year's style feel brand new again.
Add a Decorative Trim
A decorative trim placed along the edge of the collar or lapels will instantly breathe new life into your coat.
Incorporate a New Belt
Even if your coat didn't come with a belt, you can always add one. For a chunkier coat, opt for a thicker accessory, like the Stella McCartney style below.
Pin On a Brooch
Brooches are having a moment this fall, thanks to the Prada runway. Pin one (or two!) on the lapel of your coat.
Replace the Buttons
Swap out your coat's standard buttons for more statement-making adornments.
Attach a Fur Collar
A fur collar will instantly add a dose of old Hollywood glamour to your topper.
