In The Pink
There may be a multitude of coat shapes to covet this season, but make no mistake – the colour of your coat is CRYSTAL CLEAR. It’s all about pretty in pink for your coats this winter, as the pink coat is taking the high street by storm.
Pink is undoubtedly the hue this season, and we’ve seen an array of pinks, from subtle rose to sickly sweet pastels, all of which are a welcome change from the typically darker tones of winter. Whilst I’m usually in favour of forgoing brights for winter, I’m sold on pink as a great key note to a winter outfit, be it in a blouse, a bag, or, in this case, in a divine pink coat.
I blame Miu Miu for making me fall for a pink coat, because they had the most BEAUTIFUL pink situations going on all over the runway. The sumptuous fabric makes this pink perfect for the colder months, and I’m loving the idea of teaming the look with a deep red lip, almost clashing colours.
Other pink notes from the runway that I fell for in a big way included Jonathan Saunders’ ladylike collection, and the gorgeous pink coats from Simone Rocha.

The pink coat will make you feel like a princess, or Audrey Hepburn, or both. I’m obsessed with any number of beautiful pink coats, and my flatmate has a FABULOUS number from Topshop. It’s super classy (but always sassy) and has a classic glam feel to it, which I likey a lot.
Personally I prefer a lighter pink, because hot pink scares the hell out of me ever since I realised Barbie wasn’t real (or is she…?). I just like the classiness of a pastel pink, also you look kind of like a cupcake, which is always good, right? Boys like it when you dress like food, right…? Tragic turn for this blog post. ANYWAY, back to the coats. I’m all about this super cool ASOS number, photographed below, because it’s the perfect colour AND it looks like a ‘sensible coat’, which is my mum’s obsession. It’s sensible because it’s warm, not because of the colour. OBVIOUSLY I know that pink would be a disaster in the mud.

The moral is that the pink coat is a must if dude wants to look like a lady this winter. I’m all about this ladylike look. YUM.
