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.
