I love doing collaborations with my friends especially when we all have such different styles. 5 of my blogging bffs and I recently worked together to showcase this fabulous bomber jacket from Next. It comes in red and grey and I picked the red – mainly because I have the grey Next biker jacket from last year. I didn’t really know what to expect so I was thrilled when I opened the package to find a lovely soft, lightweight, vivid red jacket. It’s as light as a sweatshirt so the perfect weight for a throw on here in Spring. Yes it was gifted – thank you Next – but that has not skewed my opinion – I really love it and would have paid money for it. Look how great all the other girls look too! Lizzy, Fiona, Frances, Avril, me and Michelle!
Many people steer clear of red thinking it is too bright or won’t go with much in their closet. I had fun prancing around the other day with different combinations to try and demonstrate how versatile red can be. My outfits are fairly neutral but red is also a great statement color to clash/colorblock with oranges, pinks and blues.
