If you haven’t picked up a new coat this season, these styles are red hot!

Christian-Dior-Runway-Fashion-Week-Fall-2013- Red CoatMaybe it’s my recent fascination with the oh-so-British Tom Mision, but lately all I see are “Redcoats!”

It started over a year ago with the Christian Dior coat from the haute couture runway collection in 2012. Belted. Candy apple red. Lots of swing. Absolute perfection.

Then for fall 2013, Dior did it again, with the stunner pictured!

But Dior was by no means the only designer embracing red this winter. Nina Ricci, Bottega Veneta, Marchesa — even Kate Spade all showed red coats.

Now that the holidays are past and I can think about shopping for myself a little, a red coat is #1 on my must-have list. And, lucky me! Many of the coats I lusted after all fall are now on sale.

I’ve pictured a few of my faves below. Although not as dramatic as their runway counterparts, these coats also won’t look out of place in the grocery store/at a PTA meeting/walking in the mall. Plus, these classic styles will stand the test of time and still stay… red-hot!

Cold? These coats are red hot!
