When the sky looks as comforting as days-old sidewalk slush, it can be hard to muster the enthusiasm to wear anything other than shades of black, gray, and brown. You probably notice during your commute that a few other (thousand) people have the same idea; there's nothing more monotonous and dreary than a subway car at 8:45 a.m. on Monday. Do your part to break that cycle — by sporting a pink coat. Because not only do you probably wear the same coat every single day, but pink is a surprisingly easy color to match. It looks great with pastels, jewel tones, primary colors, and neutrals (because, let's be honest, change doesn't happen all at once).

This sweet and ladylike coat has an adorable cinch, but its slightly exaggerated design gives it that much-needed weird twist.
