During the Fall/Winter season, when walking on the street or making an entrance, no article of clothing has quite the same fashion impact as one's outerwear. It attracts far more attention than say clothing, jewelry and accessories which tend to be hidden below it during these colder months of the year. Even footwear doesn't carry quite the weight of outerwear, although boots are probably the second most important fashion category during this time frame.
So what better way to impress others with your keen sense of fashion during Fall/Winter than with a "statement coat"? A statement coat is one which standouts from all others due to its visual appeal. This could be attributed to its unique silhouette, material, embellishment, print or any combination of there of.
