With winter approaching in much of the world, hordes of city-dwellers join the mass of black or neutral-hued overcoats to get through the darker months. However many designers seem to be holding on to summer, packing their jackets with just as much warmth, but in bright colors completely unexpected for the winter. Each day this week we present our picks in a different shade starting with the sunniest of them all—yellow.

Moncler Gamme Bleu Down Jacket

Designer Thom Browne brings his characteristic playful attitude to the respected French brand, emphasizing Moncler’s racing aesthetic and use of durable fabrics in a decidedly bright and buttery yellow. The Moncler Gamme Bleu down jacket from the Fall/Winter 2012 collection is the perfect finish brings a pop of color to a gentleman’s ensemble with its unlikely hue.

YMC Reversible Cara Quilted Jacket

Vaguely reminiscent of a classic fisherman’s rain slicker, British label YMC‘s reversible Cara Quilted Jacket comes in a yellow that gives it a retro feel, updated with a rich silk blend and sharp fit. We like the tomboy appeal and youthful spirit for a season that sometimes takes itself way tops seriously.
