Succumbing to the pink jacket trend.

Pink, pink, pink – it’s been everywhere in AW13, starting with the Marks and Spencer pink duster coat that set the world alight across the Atlantic (okay so not technically the ‘world’).  I resisted temptation as lets face it I have more coats than ever deemed necessary living in the Southern States.  As time has marched on, and the Spring season starts to hit the stores, it seems that pink is here to stay for a while…and I have started twitching for pink.

This ASOS jacket is stunning and a great soft shade of pink – almost lilac.  It’s also currently reduced and will be great for seeing you through the Spring.

If you prefer more of a coral pink this from TopShop is a great choice.  There are only a few sizes left online but check out your local Nordstrom if you are in the US.

If you’re currently freezing here in the Polar Plunge, or just dealing with the regular January frigid temperatures in the UK, you may not be quite ready for a jacket yet.  These coats are great options and align nicely with the pastel trend for Spring.

I love this TopShop fluffy coat and this might be my choice…IF I needed another coat 🙂

I can’t talk about pink coats without mentioning this cashmere blend coat by Marks and Spencer.  It looks just amazing – the cut, the color and the length.  At £99 it’s a great coat.  Should I order it just to try?

Whether it’s a coat or a jacket that suits your lifestyle and climate, pink is a surprisingly versatile color and can really brighten up a winter outfit.  My choice happened to be the Zara jacket – mainly as it caught my eye in the sale online – and it may still be available in stores.  Given the cold today I layered it over my denim jacket and really loved how it worked with blue denim – of course it will be perfect with grey and black too, in fact it has a black lining which works well with the usual winter color palettes.

    I tried on the Zara pea coat one in the fall and didn’t grab it and of course it sold out. Loving that Topshop one! It is hard for me to justify buying another coat however and I am not sure how long I would be in love with pink.

    That’s a great outfit Joanna. I’ve loved all things pink this season, I tend to go for a nude shade. Really love the ASOS jacket but fear I couldn’t pull off the lilac tone. Much prefer the pink of your jacket. Donna x

    I’m not a fan of pastels and hold quite a strong dislike for pale pink for some reason. But I’m tempted by the ASOS jacket – the shade looks gorgeous. You look beautiful in the pink jacket, really fresh and glowy. I really like it on you. X

    Love the Zara jacket on you Joanna, I’m a real fan of this shade of pink as like you says it looks lovely with denim not to mention grey…in fact I may have just purchased a new top in this colour 😉 Jane xx

    Love love love ALL things pink! You look stunning in that outfit – definitely a favourite for me. And even though I must have about 47 coats (including a pale pink one) – I’m now trying to convince myself that the first ASOS one has a place in my wardrobe…need to give myself a slap! Ax

    Love that pink jacket, looks lush with the denim jacket and grey, as you know I am a sucker for all things pink and would probably buy all of the options you have chosen in your blog! But as I have one pink coat I am considering the blue zara coat with no collar….not sure whether to dive in yet as I think m&s might have a nice blue one coming out soon? X

    Oh no … it’s only a matter of time before I succumb to the pink isn’t it? Love the styling of your jacket in the last pic. A little different from all the pink coat offerings around at the moment.
