A scarlet poncho, swirling about you like the petals of a bright hibiscus, well my love, a red wool poncho is to die for if you find the one that is right for you.

Finishing Touches Add Glam-on-Glam Style

Deck out your red outerwear with a luxurious scarf – perhaps silk or cashmere or a blend of both.

Add some very dark, large lens sunglasses. Or even some super-large eyeglasses like Adrienne Arpel.

Finish the look with leather gloves that complement your handbag or your shoes or boots.

You have never looked better than you will in a red trench coat, red pea coat, red wool poncho, or red rain poncho.

Before spending, here's some things to consider to make sure you get the perfect women's winter coat.

An interesting substitute for a long trench coat is a long sweater coat. This can make a fabulous transitional season garment and may even be layered under a longer coat on especially cold winter days.
