Gimme all the colour

Which is something you rarely hear me say.  Maybe there's something in the air, maybe I've got Winter cabin fever, maybe I am just looking towards all things Spring but I have a hankering for BRIGHT coloured coats. 

I'm not going to lie - this is something that I normally wouldn't consider. However this season I have been given both a green one and then, as part of my paid partnership with M&S, I chose for one of last year's monthly picks, a red coat.  And do you know what?  I love both of them.  And looking back in my wardrobe as to one of my favourite coats - it's a way out check number from Zara that I remember being not too sure about when I bought it but guess what - out of all the coats that I've bought over the past five years, this is one of the only ones I have kept. 

As I type, I'm also thinking about the mustard/tan one that I bought last year from Warehouse.  Hardly the most neutral of coats but one that I have worn far more than I thought I would. 

Seeing as it may well snow this week, I thought I'd look at the coloured options we've got for outerwear and why it's worth considering one of these as a little wardrobe pick me up.  For I can guarantee you, they'll be a faithful "go to" in your wardrobe for years to come.

Starting with this season's must have colour - lilac.  I LOVE this shade.  It is far more versatile than you would initially think.  It looks fabulous with navy and greys.  Mix with jeans and leopard print for a really modern and fresh look.  Pinks are an obvious choice too.

Tomorrow, will be back with either another head to toe colour option (I've got a couple up my sleeve, but what would your choices be?  Any preferences?) or the must have Spring footwear choice (but I can't decide which to do first - ankle boots, mules or loafers.... decisions, decisions...).

Hope everyone has had a great weekend, I'm sat here trying to convince myself I don't need another coat.

  1. I know I'm a fussy so and so! I would like a coat in the blue of the warehouse one in a more fitted silhouette! Being a little vertically challenged I feel like I need a style with a defined waist. As far as colour goes I'm after something I feel is a classic and not too much of a statement, and I'm not totally convinced by bright pink or cobalt blue.
    I always find if I have something specific in mind, it's almost impossible to find it. But there are some lovely styles in lovely colours, so while my search will continue I'm not disheartened!
