The photos above of Maria del Orden wearing a dramatic Dior trench stopped me in my tracks. Over the years, I’ve picked up some dramatic outerwear — fur and feather trimmed beauties, bold colored toppers, etc. — and I was spurred to revisit my statement coat collection after. I find I wear them a lot more than I anticipated. They often completely make an outfit, and are the only thing that most strangers see you wearing during the winter months. So why not take a risk? Below, some of my favorite dramatic outerwear pieces from this season.
02. BURGESS SWEATERS CABLEKNIT PONCHO — OBSESSED WITH THE CHOCOLATE BROWN COLOR

08. COS HERRINGBONE COAT — THERE IS SOMETHING DELIGHTFULLY VINTAGE ITALIAN GRANDMA ABOUT THIS
